Included is a picture of where my ground wire is attached (red line). Where the hood meets the body.

Unless you find the answer sooner, I can look at the Neon in a few hours to give you the exact location, I m not the person who drives it.

Found this answer on the web:

"The negative cable almost always goes to the engine block then it has a strap that grounds the block to the frame and body. There could be several of these "straps" or wires. They usually look like a braided metal rope except flattened out.&Quot;

Ground wire is where the red dot is. Behind and to the right of the starter. Bolts on the block.

Your Welcome!
There should be a bolt in the block where it would connect unless the bolt has dropped out.
