Trooper sighting in my neighborhood!

Looks like a really nice 1987 or late model '86!
Intact grill with emblems, and the original Isuzu steel wheels too!
I wonder if this Trooper will be a permanent resident in my hood?

Rare opportunity for someone, alas...not me.

This is probably the most complete Bellel I have seen for sale in the USA. Normally, they are missing a lot of parts and in horrible condition.  This one does have issues though.  It is hard to tell the extent of the rust and there appears to be several rather large dents.  But again, this car is said to be complete, and is easily the best candidate for restore I have see yet.  Too bad I already have too much.

That dent in the front fender looks bad, but could likely be repaired by a good panel beater.

And it's not even a diesel!

I am shocked, granted it is extremely clean with very low mileage, the price tag here is far higher than any gen 1 Trooper I have seen for sale since I got into these vehicles.

Confirmed: The Pearl White VX is for sale again.

Yup, it has been VIN and option plate confirmed, that this VehiCROSS is indeed the one and only "Pearl White Mica" VehiCROSS.  Supposedly, this is the last VehiCROSS to ever be built and shipped into the USA, and it is the only VehiCROSS to receive a special paint job in "Pearl White Mica" (a non-standard color for USDM VehiCROSSes).  Most likely, it has spent its entire life in Colorado, where it was originally sold and is now for sale again at Longmont Ford for $7,000 .

For your viewing pleasure: 1993 VehiCROSS Concept

I recently ran across these nice, higher-res photos of the VX concept car. I have seen some similar to this in the past, but these ones are nicer.

This one is big enough to make a nice desktop background.
This one is just cool, but not as high-res.

1986 Isuzu Trooper II on OPC

One of my favorite blogs, Old Parked Cars, recently posted this beauty! I just had to re-blog it.
I really wish Isuzu would have kept the old two door long wheelbase platform until 1991.  There's something about the two door versions that give the old Troopers that classic, old-school feel.
