History
Have been looking for a GLH for a while. This one was right around the corner from my Dads house. The prior owners had removed the N/A engine and dropped in a Turbo II and A-555 tranny from an 87 Shelby Z. Also rewired it to 88 electronics. Another project that needs some more goods to finish off. Looking for that nice 350/400 formula for a nice street machine.
1985 Dodge Omni (Red)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Fairly stock Turbo II...a Stage 3 ECU from FWD Performance, and a makeshift intake, and BOV. Larger full exhaust, with a 2.5" swing valve. May pull it this winter and give it the beans. I've been trying to do as much research to get a combo together, and avoid the mistakes mad on the Shelby Z.
Interior
Has some pod gauges, a flat bottom Grant steering wheel, some gauge pods. Some transplanted seats from a Horizon.
Exterior
Also fairly stock. Prior owner wired in a 3rd brake light and some LED signals. I've got a Turbo Hood waiting to go in. A lady was nice enough to crease my rear driver side door...the nice and straight door...figures. Some Horizon taillights as well. Need to do some body work and finish off with some paint.
Audio
Jeep Grand Cherokee OEM CD/Tape deck with some nice speakers.
Suspension
KYB struts...with Eibach springs on the front...rears are still stock. Rear disc breaks from the Shelby Z, and the larger sway bar up front.
Wheel and Tire
Running with 6.5" crab wheels from a Turbo Z with 205/50's.

I really like that car bro. You still got this thing? I am a huge fan of this car.

I got an 86 Plymouth Horizon that me and my dad are gonna modify as a GLH almost like this but a few differences. He and I are gonna paint the stripe that they did on the Shelby Charger in silver, rims from a Dodge Neon SXT (7 spoke), the black side skirts that they added with "Horizon" written in red, the black trim and a lot more mods.
