5k: Slowest Car Ever: 1981 Isuzu I-Mark Diesel

The Isuzu Gemini was originally sold in the US market as the Opel by Isuzu, changed to the Buick Opel and finally in 1981 became the Isuzu I-Mark.  The 2nd generation I-Mark was a Giugiaro designed front driver, but the first generation was a rear drive Japanese classic holdover from another era.  Find this 1981 Isuzu I-Mark diesel for sale in Staten Island, NY for $6,700 buy-it-now via ebay.  Tip from Mark vdD.

Tipper Mark first sent in a pretty horrible 1982 Chevette diesel with the subject “A challenge: find a slower car than this…” and then he sent in this Isuzu I-Mark diesel.  The only thing slower we could find was a Tesla Model S with a bricked battery.

The I-Mark diesel is pushed around by the 4FB1, a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder naturally aspirated diesel engine that puts out 51 horsepower.  Slow does not even start to describe the purgatory slow lane this car will keep you in. Seriously, just put the hazards on when you start driving around and turn them off when you park.

The inside of this low mile I-Mark is a crazy combination of red materials and looks really nice for a 30 year old Isuzu.
