    1987 Isuzu Impulse RS Turbo Special Edition

    Greetings all. I just found this site and joined up.

    I recently took ownership of this gorgeous 1987 Isuzu Impulse Special Edition. She's almost 100% all original, save for some tinting and an updated radio.

    I purchased the car from the original owner, and I just wanted to share a few pics with the folks on this forum. I know it's not as "vintage" as some of the cars on here, but she is 23 years old! I'm a long time Isuzu geek, and my other vehicles consist of a 2001 Isuzu VehiCROSS and a 1991 Isuzu Trooper. Adding the Impulse to the "collection" just felt normal.



















    I'm toying with the idea of driving down to Long Beach for the big show. Not sure yet.

    Thanks!

    No plans other than to keep it running good and clean! These cars are getting pretty rare these days....actually very rare....and since this one is so nice and original, I just don't think I can mod it up. It has a few very minor issues that shouldn't take much to fix, but other than that, she's gonna stay just the way she is.

    Yup, I mean, just look at those wheels! Not only are white wheels pretty much unheard of nowadays, they are just so cool and retro it makes me feel like watching Tron for breakfast, The Goonies for lunch, Rad for dinner with a few episodes of Miami Vice for dessert, all whist wearing a pink Izod shirt with popped collar! :lol:

    I'm trying to figure out a way to make it happen. I have a dog and no one at the moment to watch her so I don't know if I can swing it. I really want to though...we'll see.

    Take the dog with you I'm sure it will enjoy sticking it's head out the window all the way down to the show

    No dogs allowed at the show or the hotel, otherwise, I would definitely!

    Another Japanese White Special - must have been a phase manufacturers of the day went through..........

    That is so nice though.

    I've had one of these, Isuzu Piazza.

    Great machine - lsd in the wet is very interesting!

    For a design from early '83-84 (from memory) these were so ahead of anything else IMO.
