I never thought of the Neon as a 'poor car'. Our family had 4 of the 1st gens after our Horizons rusted out. It was a versatile, economical and dependable car. It carried and did everything we asked of it. Buyers were either young or old, the car filled many needs.
The PL was the springboard for the Pronto concepts and finally the PT Cruiser. The ACR, R/T and SRT-4 was a tuner favorite.
I remember when they first arrived at the dealer in Jan 1994. More interior room than a Dynasty. Neon broke all the rules.

132 hp / 129 lb ft. You could spend thousands more on the top Honda Civic and only get 125 hp / 100 lb ft. You could still get competitors' cars with well under 100 hp. And the optional engine was 150 hp. It swept through stock car racing (real stock cars, not NASCAR) like a knife through butter. It had the largest interior in its class, near the top handling, near the top acceleration, and good mileage, and was comfortable and functional and good looking.

Automatic was not the best way to experience it. The manual was rewarding.
