Isuzu Piazza - Nero Edition for sale in Tokyo!


I guess nostalgic Isuzus are valued a little more in the homeland.
The car is at the Isuzu Sports Eagle dealership, which is about an hour and half from Tokyo.
I will be going here for sure next time I am in Japan.

Just found new pics of an Isuzu Unicab KR85

Just found these on a Bellet site.  Very nice condition.

The elusive 1989 Isuzu Trooper RS

The elusive 1989 Isuzu Trooper RS

First generation SWB (Short Wheel Base) Troopers were only imported during a single year, 1989.  And with considerably smaller production numbers when compared to the 4-door versions, these little guys are quite rare today.  Probably rarer than JR Impulses in fact.  And for any Trooper fan in the USA, a Trooper RS is pretty much the holy grail.  In the 5 years I have lived in the mountain town of Reno, NV, I have seen exactly two RS Troopers, both red, one 1989 and one second generation 1993 model.  And if you follow my blog, you already know about the 1993.

Now, I have stalked and drooled over both of these Troopers for several years, and had that 93 been in running condition, I probably would have bought it, but another major project was just not in the cards at the time.  Enter the 89.  I first saw it sitting in a Wells Fargo parking lot back in May 2009.  Here is the picture I took of it.
