Large stock of unused cars found in Singapore

A rare find of 150 “brand new”, and most probably unregistered, Chrysler Neon was found in Singapore. Now, this is something that we normally don’t get to see or hear in our little island. Let’s ask ourselves these questions. Some people found 150 unused cars in Singapore? A Chrysler Neon? What is that? Most people in Singapore would not know that such a model existed. Let’s unfold more about this interesting story.

150 unused Chrysler Neon was found recently in Singapore and a local company is selling them for US$1350 each (rather cheap if you were to ask me). An ad listed by the company at alibaba.com shows that they are 1997 models, have a displacement of 2 litres, practically zero mileage and all are in right hand drive. The company name is Arete Trading Pte Ltd. A short internet check shows that the company is listed locally. The cars are being sold as a lot, if anyone is interested.

Not much was revealed as to where exactly in Singapore were this cars found and why were they left just like that. Condition of the cars was not known but judging from the picture, they need one hell of a wash. One of the probable reasons why they are being sold rather cheaply is because, I believe, much needs to be done before they can be used again.

I can’t remember whether Chrysler had a dealership in Singapore at that time. Could it be that some deal had gone bad and the cars were left abandoned just like that? Or perhaps, the cars were for another market and nobody tried to collect it? Whatever it is, it is sad to see unused cars left just like that because they are built to be used or in this case, driven.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.

To my mind, that’s because finding a reasonably priced used car can be hard at the moment. This is because when the economy is sluggish it tends to increase the demand for these vehicles and push up the price. It also means that people aren’t buying new cars so there are fewer old vehicles being sold, and this also impacts the price. A few years ago you could pick up a quality second hand vehicle for a very reasonable price, but this is not as easy as it once was. People now prefer buying cars through instant cash loans with no credit check. Thankfully we have seen some signs of life in the used car market but the reality is that it will still take a few years before things get back to the way they were.
