Hey, the front end damage was repaired. Guess the owner finally found the parts?
One of these is on my wish list.
Did Isuzu build these cars for other manufacterers too? I saw one these on a buy-here pay-here lot here in Winter Haven, Florida in the late '90's. It was a 4-door model with I thinkChevrolet badging. It was Butter Yellow with black sport stripes running down both sides. Italso had the 5-spoke factory sport rims. It had a 5-speed stick shift mated to a 4-cylinderdeisel engine. While the price was right, I didn't buy the car due to lack of spare parts. Look-ing back, maybe I should've bought it.
such a perfect gloomy east portland setting. when did you shoot this? glad to have it documented again.let's go play some video poker at that tavern.
Yay! It's been fixed! I nominate for best of.
These were good cars; the diesel was reliable and economical (Isuzu claimed 50 mpg when they entered the US market in 1981). I owned two 81 models from 83-90, one a deluxe ES 5-speed and the other a strippo 4-speed. Isuzu bought the Opel tooling from GM in 1976; they were imported and marketed as a Buick Opel prior to 81. Isuzu"s diesel was eventually offered in the Chevette and the Isuzu built Chevy Luv.
