A cracked windshield would fail inspection here, thus no registration. We don't have a track, so there is nothing one could do with such a car, no matter how fun it might be to drive. Shortly put, what's the point?
I always thought these looked like the second generation Saturn SL from behind, vs. the current 1991 generation when these were out. Odd car then, and you'll never see another one. Although the local librarian had one of these up until a few years ago. She replaced with a Lotus Elise....
Great little car. I owned a 91 Geo Storm GSi and did well in my regional autocross with it. Unfortunately, Isuzu did little to rustproof the car and the Michigan salt got to it. It was very reliable, peppy and fun to drive. One of my favorite cars.
I had an 1984 Isuzu I-Mark, the predecessor to the Stylus. It was the base model, with the only option being air conditioning. It had the base 4 cylinder and a 5-speed, so it wasn't fast off the line, but it was still fun to drive. I flogged that little car, and it never quit on me. I sold it with 167,000 miles on it, and it still ran like a champ and didn't burn any oil. The S-10 I bought to replace it was a dog. I wish I had kept the I-Mark.
I do remember these cars, but even more memorable to me ( but probably less to the car buying public) was the 2 door Impulse version. I think it was offered for only one year in RS trim with AWD and an intercooled 16v turbo engine. Handling by Lotus as well. That was a cool little car that no one bought. Finding one is like finding hen's teeth.
