When I was looking for one of my first cars, I came across an ad for a very low-mileage 1979 Dodge Omni 024 hatchback that I decided to look at. Thought it would be a 'sporty' econo car to have. Went to look at the car, and it was weird - the body was completely rusted out all over, and the interior was absolutely mint. When I say the car was rusted out, even the floor was going on it, and it was obvious. Even with these issues, I decided I'd come this far, might as well take it for a drive. I wanted to get 'back into' driving a stick, so I chose this car b/c it was a 4-speed. I was nervous about looking like I had no idea what I was doing, but the owner and I got in for a drive. Now, it was the middle of summer, and it was HOT, like 30C, and this car had been sitting for a while, so it was hot inside, and it didn't help that it had a bright red all-vinyl interior, that didn't have a mark in it. I was so nervous about driving the car, that I didn't think to roll down the window, so I started it up, and drove it around the long country block, trying not to stall or buck it. When we were nearly back at the house, the owner in the car with me commented 'hot, isn't it?' that's when I snapped out of my daze, and realized I was literally soaked head to toe in sweat, it was just pouring off me. I sheepishly parked the car, and explained to the owner that I thought that it was in too rough of shape to last any period, and he admitted that I might be right. It was an east-cast car that wasn't driven very much, hence the mint interior and completely rotted body and floor. But to this day I haven't seen an Omni with that nice of an interior....it was funny that the owner didn't try to sell me on it, but I think at that point he was worried about me.... My step-dad had driven me there, and when I got back to the his car, he was amazed I'd survived the test-drive, he's said 'It must have been over 60C in that car! How did you do that?' What's YOUR crazy test-drive story???
