What’s there to say? Tiny fwd elcamimo. Those engines were built tough, and get pretty good fuel economy.

My dad had a 86 Laser, my grandfather loved those Omnis, I’ve been around them a little :lol:

Don't need one, always wanted one. I don't know why they're so appealing, but they're damn cool.

My wife had a 1987 Charger fastback with the 2.2L she bought new. We put about 150k on it + 2 timing belts and a distributor.

My first brand new car was an 82 Charger 2.2. It was a neat little car. The next year I think came out with a 5 speed, which would be nice to have.

I had an 82 Rampage with the 4 cyl and 5 speed. 30 MPG, fun, and pretty fast. Black with silver stripes made it look pretty good too.

Back up. Sorry, I read it too fast. Looking for a Dodge Rampage instead of looking at a Dodge Rampage.

My wife and I bought an 1984 Charger new when she became pregnant with our first born. It had a 2.2 with the 5 speed, we traded our 1978 L82 Corvette for it ( not a good family car). The Charger was lots of fun and very economical and reliable, we ended up trading it for a 1986 Grand National when child #2 came along, that car was a lemon and turned me off of GM's for decades. I think you will have a blast with that Rampage, every trip to the hardware store will be an adventure.

I had one. Steel Grey with a crappy red interior. A local U-Pull yard that had Saturday morning specials - all you could haul out on a car hood for $25.. I went every afternoon for the previous week, pulling stuff out of Omnis and stashing it for Saturday. I hauled out a COMPLETE grey interior as well as a complete a/c system as well as a rear window for my Pontiac wagon. They were obviously suspicious of my methods but never said anything. That thing served me well. Can't remember why but I scrapped it. 2.2's were notorious for blowing head gaskets.

I'll add this ... If I ever bring another one home my wife will kill me while I sleep.
