    Didn't Isuzu make them for Opel? It's virtually the same car as the Gemini.

    In my country, the Kadett were sold first, then replaced by Gemini. There are far more Gemini Coupe than Kadett Coupe but more Kadett sedan than Gemini sedan where quite a lot were used as taxis in diesel form.

    It was a joint-venture with all the subsidaries in GM.

    Opel Kadetts ran opel motors and were used for Europe. Isuzu took care of Aus, Japan and the US.

    Same car different engine
