    No posts in the Isuzu forum yet.. hmm.
    Well, the one Isuzu that sticks out to me is the Vehicross. I could see myself buying one someday, haha.

    Made in 1997-2001, the Vehicross looks very different, generally a good kind of different though, not a PT Cruiser/Crossfire/HHR/Aztek type of different (at least to me). It got great reviews in it's time from 4WD magazines, and apparently had a really cool VOD torque sensing system that would actively shift torque balance on the fly. Performance from the engine was pretty good compared to north american engines as well.
    It was also featured on the movie "Ghosts of Mars" with a funny futuristic engine sound. very few were made for north america, somewhere around 5000?

    Really, I think this is an interesting vehicle because of the design choices, they were ahead of the curve by a few years, judging by what came out for concept cars in the early 2000's (the crossover) It looks like you somehow got your hands on a concept, and stole it from an auto show.

    There is one for sale in the Edmonton area right now, and I'm trying to convice a friend to buy it! (or my legnum! :D)

    The first is sick. The rest looks like a Aztec remake that's somehow equally messed up.
    But looks aside what are its technical features.

    What he said. They look like they should be vehicles from Children of Men, or some other semi-future movie.
