That young man is a 1984 Dodge Rampage, Prospector Edition. FWD, 2.2L I4, 5sp Manual with about 100 hp. It is based on the Dodge Horizon/Omni/Charger platform.

Thay only made about 40,000 in the three years. 82-84

The one I am getting is in really good shape for it's age. Runs and everything is there. It has new everything, but has a tad bit of rust in the roof, but I am a good body man. $500

Actually, I'd rather have that over the Aston!

Yes, I'm strange.

Well, I have been doing some research and a good running engine gets about 35+ mpg. It weighs 2400 lbs from the factory and there are a few guys getting 200 hp out of the turbo version of this engine.

Hooker makes a header, there are some nice Weber carbs for it.

All of the accessories are EASY to reach, remove and replace.

The head gasket is a no brainer. The interior is the same in several different vehicles.

I am going to clean it up and do some free stuff first, then maybe get a little nutty.

Since I could not find a bike that fit my budget I decided to drop that idea until I got the Suburban back together.

I was approached with this offer by a couple guys that want the vehicle, but are not mechanically inclined, so they want my third to be sweat equity.

It is going to be interesting.

I might even hang up the Cadillac for awhile.

I have always like different.

I had a 1986 Dodge Charger. But what I REALLY wanted was an Omni GLH (aka Goes Like Hell)
