Mo Wheels, Mo Problems – 1989 Isuzu Pickup

March 17, 2016

A recent in-flight showing of Straight Outta Compton brought back memories of the whole minitruck craze of the 1980s. The ingredients are obvious – take a basic vehicle, no matter how limited in performance, and apply a flashy paint job, bigger wheels, lowered suspension, and the loudest stereo you can get at Circuit City. Of course, once the trend passed, some surviving examples of this trend seem to have turned into daily drivers, and that’s what’s clearly the case for this 1989 Isuzu six-wheel pickup for sale for $3000 in Copperas Cove, TX.

80s Pimpin’ – 1988 Isuzu I-Mark Turbo Sedan

December 11, 2013

Recently departed Isuzu (if you didn’t notice, they left North America in 2009) was most recently known for producing a range of SUVs and trucks running from the boring to the weird, but from the 1970s to the 1990s, they were involved in the production of passenger cars, including some fairly interesting models like the Impulse/Piazza. As with many other manufacturers, they jumped on the turbocharging bandwagon, even with their T-platform car, the I-Mark. You can find this 1988 Isuzu I-Mark Turbo sedan in Lompoc, CA with bidding at $560 and 1 1/2 days to go, or a Buy-it-Now price of $2300.

Woof – Isuzu I-Mark Diesel Coupe and Sedan

November 8, 2013

Nothing to see here, folks. The only real reason to feature these cars is their rarity, and because some tree-hugging greenie (among whom this writer counts himself!) who doesn’t want to shell out for a Prius or VW TDI will convert it to biodiesel. Anyhow, based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Chevette, Isuzu brought these lovely cars to the North American market. And in a bid to remain competitive against the contemporary VW diesel in a gas crisis climate, they fitted it with a diesel engine as well. Clothed in a fairly handsome coupe body, this 1981 Isuzu I-Mark Diesel Coupe is for sale in Hesperia, CA for $2000.
