Probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a Giugiaro-designed RWD hatchback.

Parts are likely made of unobtanium...but this appears to like a pretty clean car for the money.  RWD!  Unfortunately, it's the NA version, so likely only 110ish HP.  They did make a turbo version throughout the 80s.  Pretty this is one of the "Handling by Lotus" cars.

A good friend had one of these. At the same time I had a 1970 Ford XL(LTD) convertible with a 390/2bbl. It was still quicker than his Impulse. It was a cool car & handled well though. The moveable control/switch pods on either side of the steering wheel were super cool too.

Was hoping for the Turbo, AWD version.  A hotted-up Geo, but still.

In reply to pinchvalve :

you and me both, but the geo never saw the turbo or AWD version.  I wish I knew what happened to the wagon someone body swapped with the turbo awd version. laugh

Man I ALWAYS check for Isuzus here in the Midwest, but the only ones I have ever found have been half the country away- last one I saw I could buy was in Philly.

I'm still posting this in some Isuzu groups tho- maybe one of them will snag it.
