The 1978 Dodge Omni and Plymouth Horizon hatchback sedans were Chrysler’s well-received answer to the Volkswagen Rabbit. Racy Omni 024 and Horizon TC3 two-doors followed for the 1979 model year as the American company’s response to the Rabbit-based Scirocco.

Ford is doing it right now with a subcompact crossover (EcoSport) imported from India. Cadillac did it with a German import badged on these shores as Catera. Honda did it with rebadged midsize SUV (Passport) that was actually built by Isuzu.

One of Rick’s Cool Cars for Under $5000, the Volkswagen GTI

You just can’t bear the thought.

Whether you’re right out of college, replacing a car that’s given up the ghost, or adding a needed vehicle to your existing fleet, “Go with the flow” has never been your automotive mantra.

If you’re looking for proof that 1982 was a transitional year for the domestic auto industry, check out the dealer sales-training video for the then-new Chevrolet Cavalier below.
