Remember the Plymouth/Dodge Neon, the little cab-forward car that was Chrysler’s answer to the Ford Escort?

Remember how that car was ridiculed as a toy and “gay” and no one in their right mind in the era of the mighty SUV would be caught dead in one?

Well, Superior Automotive had one on their lot this weekend, a 2005 with spoiler and a sunroof. 6 people asked for it. All 6 said, “I have to have it! It gets 26 miles to the gallon.”

All 6 were disappointed. It now sits in my driveway, awaiting the tags off the Wintermobile.

To all those saddled with SUV’s you can’t trade in now and have to pump $200 worth of gas to run every week…

  1. Ha, I bought a Corolla last July. 26 miles to the gallon? How about 36. I plan to drive it until the wheels fall off. Which may not be too long – in 11 months I’ve put 20,000 miles on it.

  2. Ok, this is digging into my memory here a bit , but Dodge produced a version of the Neon that had a turbocharged 1.8 (I think) in it, plus a LSD and a bunch of other goodies. I think it was called the R/T, hot little machine.
