Dodge Omni 024

The Dodge Omni 024 was a modified version of the popular Dodge Omni made from 1979 to 1982. Analogous to the VW Scirocco, this car was a lower, sportier three-door hatchback coupé version of the Chrysler/Simca Horizon, using the five-door hatchback's floor pan and chassis as a basis; the cars were designed in-house at the prompting of Lee Iacocca. It used the same chassis and engine options as the Omni but had unique bodywork and front end styling; the base engine was a 1.7 L Volkswagen inline four producing 70 hp, with a 2.2 L, 84 hp Chrysler inline four as an option beginning in 1981. By the smaller engine only produced 63 hp. For the first year, the car had a folding back seat and the wheels were painted in the exterior color; the car's looks promised more performance than the engine could deliver, the car was not as practical as the Omni. Both the Omni and Horizon prefixes were dropped for 1981, making them the "024" and "TC3", respectively; the 024 did not sell well and was renamed as the Dodge Charger for the 1983 model year, a name, introduced as part of a special "Charger 2.2" package beginning in 1981.

The 024 had been produced as the Plymouth Horizon TC3. It, was renamed in the 1983 model year: to the Plymouth Turismo; the "Turismo" label had been used on a sport package beginning in 1980. In its last year, the 024 and TC3 served as a base for the Dodge Rampage and Plymouth Scamp pick-up trucks using the same chassis and body parts from the doors forward. In 1980 the Plymouth Horizon TC3 became available with the Turismo sport package. For the Dodge Omni 024 this was called the DeTomaso package, with De Tomaso designed trim and wheels but the standard drivetrain. 1,333 De Tomaso 024's were built in 1980, followed by 619 more in 1981. The 1981 De Tomasos were only available with the new 2.2 litre engine. In 1980, in cooperation with Chrysler partner Mitsubishi, the Chrysler Omni 024 was sold in Japan, it was available for two years at Mitsubishi dealerships and it complied with Japanese Government dimension regulations. It didn't sell well, with only 1491 finding Japanese buyers. Lee, John. Standard Catalog of Chrysler, 1924-1990.

South West Industrial, Saskatoon

South West Industrial known as Holiday Park Industrial and labelled SEDCO Industrial on city maps of the 1980s and 1990s, is an industrial subdivision located in the Confederation SDA in southwest Saskatoon, Canada. The area now known as South West Industrial had appeared at various times on city maps going back to at least the 1950s. Designed with a grid street layout, the area was conceived as a residential community. However, the decision was made to promote industrial development; the current layout appeared on maps beginning in the early 1980s. As part of the concept plans after the demolition of the plant, the roadway returned, as part of an alignment that saw a new entrance road from 11th Street, in lieu of the elimination of the Fletcher Road exit at Dundonald Avenue as part of the Circle Drive South project. In order to make a new roadway into the industrial park, Dudley Street was realigned at the new road, named Dawes Avenue; the names assigned to the area are names, assigned to other streets that were either removed or renamed in prior years.

Major businesses include Cameco Corporation, Hi-Way Greenhouse, Can-Pro Auto Parts and Mercury Graphics. The area was dominated by the Mitchell's Gourmet Foods plant for decades, until the building was demolished in the late 2000s to make way for an extension of Circle Drive. Although the subdivision has existed since the 1980s, it has a large number of vacant lots. 11th Street West and Circle Drive are the main traffic arteries into the area. The main road through South West Industrial is Fletcher Road, which becomes Avenue W to the north of Dudley Street. Construction of Circle Drive, forced the removal of Fletcher Road's western access into the area. South West Industrial is served by Saskatoon Transit bus route #9; the southern boundary of the South West Industrial is the CNR track. The CPR tracks and 11th Street West form the northern boundary. Holiday Park and the Gordie Howe Management Area lie to the east, Dundonald Avenue forms the western boundary. On June 20, 2008, the mayor announced that funding for the $300 million project from the federal and city governments was put in place to build a six-lane bridge and 7 km of freeway to complete the road.

The project opened on July 31, 2013. One of the main access points into South West Industrial, Fletcher Road via Dundonald Avenue, was closed to make way for an interchange between Circle Drive and Valley Road. Several streets were realigned to make way for the interchange.
