Any 12V battery with enough power to turn the starter over will be ok to use. The only special batteries in cars are the batteries the electric motors in hybrid vehicles use.

I would recommend going with a deep cycle battery. Since it is a neon, and not a large diesel engine, it should still have enough power to crank the engine over. A deep cycle battery will last you longer than a standard car battery, it'll give you a longer driving distance if your alternator ever dies on you somewhere, and it'll stand up to large loads a lot better if you ever put in a large stereo system.
