Hi, I'm new to this site, but not to classic cars. But here's one I can't place. I have a 1991 Isuzu Impulse RS . My wife is pressing me to dump it!
Known facts about car:
-Only made one year; 1991. Leftovers were sold in 1992 as well.
-Less than 800 left-hand quad-headlight US models were ever produced. Because of the valve shim adjustment requirement, and the performance, most were, abused and trashed. Very few remain. Even fewer are original. I believe Jay Leno may have owned one.
-AWD, intercooled, KYB/Lotus Suspension, 4 wheel discs, ABS, 16V DOHC 1.6L 7750rpm, dual intake runners with VSV's, water & oil cooled IHI turbo, engine oil cooler, factory seats look exactly like Recaros, NACA style hood duct, factory rear LSD with 4:10 final drive, factory forged & nitrided crank and rods w/supplemental under-piston skirt squirters, under 1.8 second 60-ft times stock.
-This car is disassembled, all original, with factory window sticker, is 100% parts complete, and has glovebox and factory technician's manuals. Needs restored and assembled.
-This was the highest performing Isuzu in history, and it's downfall coincided with GM/Isuzu's Japanese vs. American CEO clash.
-Any lead in the right direction is appreciated guys as I face getting rid of it. Is this a piece of Japanese automotive history, or garbage?
