The Dodge Omni GLH and its brethren just like the Shelby Daytona had been hit tickets throughout the gradual mid-1980s revival of efficiency vehicles in Detroit. Utilizing small turbocharged engines they made use of their mild weight and with upgraded suspension, they had been pretty much as good and as enjoyable as something anybody else on the earth was promoting at the moment. Merely put, these vehicles had been the appropriate machines for the time and helped to guide the gradual march again to celebrating efficiency and horsepower in Detroit. However how did they promote them? You’ll see that under.
We have now two commercials right here, one for the Omni GLH and the opposite celebrating the Carroll Shelby “designed” efficiency line from Dodge. The primary is the Shelby advert as a result of it’s the extra campy of the 2 however in some methods the extra superior. From his signature black hat getting blown off by a dashing automotive to the dramatic appears to be like into the digital camera’s lens this has 1980s written throughout it.
The second advert, the one for the GLH is nice as a result of it was made earlier than fancy pants CGI graphics and it reveals a child constructing a mannequin GLH and as he does his constructing steps, the complete sized automotive receives the identical therapy. Once more, campy? In all probability however approach cooler than CGI. Hell, they even embrace a drag strip christmas tree in that one.
