Dodge Omni GLH Shift Linkage Installation
I installed the Great Lakes Hot Rods L body Shift Linkage kit in my Omni GLH recently.
There are some differences between the NA GLH and turbo model shift linkages which gave me a really rough time. Notice where my NA ball socket is on the long piece which goes to the shifter vs. stock. See also how my piece is angled so much more than the turbo piece is.
If you barely install the spherical bearing into the rod that will be a great starting place to allow for proper movement and placement of the shifter for the NA models. Installing the ball on the opposite side like stock may help, but I was following the directions, and the height wouldn't have been all that different anyway.
At 2:31 you can see the arm which goes to the shifter and compare it to a turbo one in the instructions you're provided.

SDAC-22 - Recap
Re-cap of the annual Shelby Dodge Auto Club (SDAC)'s event that was held in June. This was the 22nd year, and also the 25th anniversary of the '87 CSX, Lancer, and GLHS.
The event was a blast! If anyone out there is a fan of the little turbocharged four-cylinders, please feel free to stop in on the next one! These cars were pionneers on the world of FWD turbocharged performance back in the 80's and paved the way for the powerhouses we see today!
Tech stuff: Shot with a Nikon D7000 and a Go Pro Hero 2. Edited in Adobe Priemere, with some After Effects animated titles.
Video and Edit: Marybeth Kiczenski (aka.. dodgeshadowchik)
Music track(s): 1. "Shine a Light" 2. Klaypex - "Rain"
Thank you for watching and see you at SDAC-23!!

1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978 Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89. They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years old.
