1981 Dodge Omni Review
A$$ On Wheel$ — My *second* card, this one came from a junkyard after my Mom & Dad "reclaimed" the Dodge Dart and moved to Illinois. Poor acceleration, poor handling, poor looks, everything broke. The throttle-body carberator was the worse automotive design in 20 years. Absolutely terrible, terrible car, and showed why US car companies lost so much market share in the 1980's!
Pros: Cheap cheap cheap. Junkyard parts plentiful.
Cons: Everything else related to driving a car.
