San Francisco Street Sighting - 1979 Plymouth Horizon
The Plymouth Horizon and its twin, the Dodge Omni, were introduced in 1978 as two of Chrysler's entries into the bustling compact car market. Like most compacts of the time, they weren't the best-built cars. But they were pioneers in their market segment, as some of the first successful domestic front-wheel-drive small cars in the US and an important step in returning Chrysler to profitability in the '80s.
Actually, I take that back. Given the sad shape of Chrysler these days, I hope someone buys a Caliber and parks it behind this thing. Then I can take a picture of them both together.
