1986 JR130 at Pick & Pull

About a month or so ago, there was a white Impulse for sale locally on Craigslist.  I'm pretty sure I know exactly which one it was too, one that lived down the street from where I work. The other day I drove by the place just to see if it was there like it always was, and sure enough, it was gone.  I hoped someone had bought it. 

Today I found out otherwise, when I got an email from Row52 about a white 1986 Impulse that is now on the yard.  Naturally, I knew had to run over there on my lunch break and strip her down.

How sad.

A little VX madness last weekend...

So I am happy to say that my original RS was sold and driven home by a fellow Isuzu fanatic out of SLC.  And I was very excited to see a Proton VX next to my Ebony VX for a few minutes.

Funny story though, on the very morning the buyers that just drove all the way from SLC to Reno to pick up the RS, the Trooper decided to stall and die out on me while I was checking it over one last time.  Long story short, a small piece of tape somehow got into the fuel tank, and sucked up over the hole in the fuel pot, causing the pump to starve out and the RS to die.  A few hours later, Jerry, the buyer and I got it sorted and all was good.  But what kick in the pants that was!

As if the weekend wasn't tiring enough...

...but this was just something I had to do!  Jeff from Hemmings Motor News (yeah, wow) emailed me a few weeks before JCCS. He said the magazine wants to do an article on the Isuzu Impulse (really?), and they need photos. (ok, awesome)  So on Sunday, we drove two hours out of LA to Palm Springs for the photo shoot.

On the way, we stopped at the Gallery Nucleus (http://www.gallerynucleus.com/) to check out a showing of Junko Mizuno's new art show called "Rising". Mrs. IsuzuGeek bought a signed print. Sweet.

Halfway through the show, I was honored with a visit from Gene (Rickshaw) from VehiCROSS.info.
