For our weekly car pic, here's a numerically accurate vehicle:
That's a Dodge Omni GLHS, a front-wheel-drive turbocharged 2.2L 4 cylinder powered econobox-from-hell released by Mopar in the early 1980s. The Omni was Mopar's first FWD econobox, released in 1978 and running through 1990 (when it was replaced by the Shadow), and the GLHS was the Carroll Shelby-produced sport version released in 1985.
Why 13? The 175 HP engine propelled the GLHS to the quarter mile in a little over 13 seconds, and minor modifications would have the little grocery getter well into the 13s with ease. 0-60 times for the car were very respectable for the time period - 6.9 seconds at a time when the Mustang GT was hitting 60 MPH not even a second faster. The big marketing point was that the Omni GLHS was faster off the line than Carroll Shelby's GT350 of some 20 years prior.
This is one of the few cars I'd like to see salvaged from that rather dark period in American automotive history...
That is all.
