This is the 1986 Dodge Omni GLH Turbo. GLH stood for goes like hell, and by 1980s standards, it did. We have a soft spot for these awful Rabbit imitators.

…you had to admire the intransigence of Chrysler, at least a little bit.
Refusing to redesign the car at any point in its 13 year run (other than dashboard tweaks at the end of the run)
Pretending there was any difference whatsoever between Omni and Horizon
Refusing to move the rubstrip from the seam line to a lower place where it could actually protect the door.
playing warranty poker (like 7/70) with cars that I can personally attest were giant shitboxes that spontaneously failed to run right.
