Members of the Chrysler L-body family, based on the Chrysler Europe/Rootes Group/Simca-derived “Omnirizon,” are not uncommon in American wrecking yards these days; why, we just saw this ’87 Dodge Shelby Charger a few weeks ago. However, the true Omnirizon— the Dodge Omni and Plymouth Horizon— those are getting more and more rare as the 21st century grinds on. We’ve seen this first-year-of-production ’78 Horizon, this last-year-of-production ’90 Horizon, and a few in between, and now I’ve found this grimy-looking ’88 Omni in a frozen Denver yard.

- Urlik Shame left the last models roofline. Would have looked more like a 240 with a flatter roof instead of that peak at the top of the windshield.
- Kwik_Shift Just look at all the tank and APC scrap metal being produced daily in Ukraine.
- Wolfwagen On the surface not bad, I wouldn't bid on it unless I got to look at it and see the work done. if the wiring checks out, getting the vehicle up and running would be relatively cheap. Like Arthur said ease of parts and lack of complexity could make this a runner for not much money. Get the drive shaft and exterior lighting in and its a daytime runner especially if it finds a new home with a garage in CA, FL or some of the southern states. Add the top, glass and secure shifter plate over the trans and it's 49 state runner and you can handle the interior a little at a time.
- SCE to AUX Not a bad price, but it's a lot of work. At least the ad seems honest about the car.No driveshaft means that someone has to make one due to all the vehicle alterations.
- SPPPP Hmm. Reconnaisance would seem to be well covered by aerial drones. So what's the role then? Actual combat? Would the DOD / CIA deploy robotic "tacticals" to do remote killing?
