• Why do i want this car? It is ugly and slow. But somewhere out there a high school version of me really wants to take it on dates with a red headed girl name Sue or Jane.

    • I know what you mean… I kinda like orphans / forgotten models like this. A friend of mine owns a Scamp aka Rampage of this vintage and a guy up the road has the Shelby-ized version of this car (Shelby Charger) and I've always enjoyed them for their oddness. Ugly when they came out, still ugly today but I think that's part of their charm. You'll never pass another one going down the road.

  • Was that first pic taken outside the funeral home? Wow. The seller didn't even wait for grandma to get cold before putting her ride up for sale. Either that, or he/she was just then presented the invoice for "services rendered" and thought "holy crap, I'd better raise some capital quick!"

    • Wiki implies that it had a 1.6L Peugeot motor:
      In 1983, the Volkswagen engine went out of production, so a joint Chrysler/Peugeot 1.6 L engine was used instead. The Omni 024 was renamed the Charger. Carroll Shelby developed a sporty version of the car later during the year, the Dodge Shelby Charger. The transformation continued in 1984, with quad headlights now differentiating the Charger from its Omni origins. The Plymouth Turismo would share the same front end. Apart from the badging, both cars were exactly the same.
