A very attractive twenty-something girl in our office drives a 80's vintage Omni. It's a little rough, but still in pretty good shape.
Don't know her well enough to know if she's driving it for the retro-cool, or because it's what she can afford, but she rocks it rain or shine.
Remember Omni days.. better drive ability than a Chevette cause FWD but Civic & Tercel were better quality. To be fair to Chrysler Omni/Horizon had more insulation & safety engineered in than most imports of the day.
Look at what I found:
Screen capture of overheating Horizon from the movie "Trippin'" starring of all people, Donald Faison (Turk) from Scrubs.
Biggest shock of this post was remembering that Dodge dealers were still selling this car, fresh off the showroom floor, in nineteen-freaking-ninety.
1990 was a long time ago. You could still buy any number of cars worse than this one. The first generation Escort was still on the market. Hyundai was introducing their second disposable Excel. VW would still be selling the primitive Fox for another three years. The Ford Tempo still had hundreds of thousands of unhappy rental car customers to create. The Subaru Justy was rusting in dealerships, as were the leftover 2nd generation DL Hatchbacks. The Horizon was no Acura Integra or Jetta MKII, but it was far from the worst car you could receive the keys to at Avis.
