Are y'all poking fun? I took it to mean "Chrysler Omni," more properly
Dodge Omni, aka Plymouth Horizon.

Random footnotes: The Omni/Horizon (1978-90), looks like a ripoff of
the VW Rabbit (intro. 1975?), but it was actually based on the Simca
1100 and debuted in Europe as the Chrysler Horizon (1977). (See
http://allpar.com/model/horizon.html). Strictly from a styling
viewpoint, both the Rabbit and the Omni/Horizon seem to me to copy the
AMC Gremlin (1970-78).

None of those other cars float ... at least not for very long ... and
even then, only once.

Cheers,
