This next car comes from tipper Zach who suggested that we write an entirely emoji-based post for this next car…which is a terrible idea, but like I’ve said about every all-you-can-eat buffet ever; challenge accepted….but later regretted. The Isuzu👀✔ is ❌ the 🧘♀️ version, but it is 😮 by the 🤑 as 👍 💓er with a 🥵er. Some 😡 might 📞it a 💩🗃️, but it prefers the term econo🗃️. Find this 1988 Isuzu I-Mark offered for 💵1500 in 🌴er, 🐻🌲🏔️ via 😐📘 📉🥈.
I’ve always been too busy making a mess in my garage to be a good prepper, but after learning that the main plotline for the 2007 blockbuster I Am Legend is that a virus based vaccine has caused the world’s population to die or turn into mutant vampire-zombies…I’m thinking maybe I might need a good low-key bug-out vehicle. If I had a Pinzgauer, Laplander, or a 4X4 Quigley van, people are going to try and join me in an escape from the zombies, but if I had an Isuzu Trooper with rear seat delete and a hidden camper setup…that’d be stealthy and apocalypse ready. You’ll have to fix the headgasket before it goes anywhere, but that’s what garages are for, right? Ugg. I’m gonna be so hosed when the zombie apocalypse comes and all of my cars are apart. Can I get a ride? Find this 1989 Isuzu Trooper II offered for $4,500 in Culver City, CA via craigslist.
This next pickup truck doesn’t look like much from near or far. In fact, it looks just like any other 90s era pickup, but to quote tipper Rock On; This thing can blow your doors off and then carry them away in the back of the bed! That’s not a Spacecab, that’s a sleeper cab!! Find this 1989 Isuzu Pickup LS1 offered for $16,500 in San Jose, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
What’s not to love in this next car? It is a rare 2-door SUV from the 80s with a turbo diesel engine, rust, crust, and a toilet paper holder mounted on the side. Or is that a towel rack? Or a wet-suit drying rack for a surfer, perhaps? I’m gonna stick with the TP holder as my final answer, Regis. Find this 1986 Isuzu Trooper DXL 4WD Turbo Diesel 2-Door offered for $6,500 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
Most people know the big three Japanese auto manufactures Honda, Nissan and Toyota for their mainstream approach to car design and sales…but Japan has many auto manufacturers for an island that has less than 2% of the world’s population. If Mazda is the other Japanese car manufacturer like pork is the other white meat, and […]

If you enjoy driving fast, you’ll probably want to skip this next feature. Yeah. You. Just fly right by and head to the next thing that has an LS6 swapped into a dune buggy chassis. Ok. Its now just you, me, and CFlo reading — he loves the slow stuff too. The Isuzu Gemini was […]
The 1999 Isuzu VehiCROSS was an intense vehicle when it was released, just look at the name — CROSS was in ALL CAPS FROM ISUZU.
