Isuzu Vehicross. A 1993 Toyota Auto Show Concept Car winner that came into production (1999 to 2001), with very few changes. Marketed in conjunction with their sponsorship of the Ironman Triathlon. Just over 5000 total built with 4000 sent to USA. My entry: All stock 1999 Ironman Edition 215 HP DOHC V-6 / 4 spd auto Torque On Demand 4wd Recaro seats Torsion bar front suspension 4 link rear suspension External reservoir shocks 3" lift Spare tire inside rear door PS, PB, A/C, CC $30,000 msrp The term PUV (Performance Utility Vehicle) was coined to describe this car that was handbuilt by an elite team of Isuzu engineers. Multiple rally winner. I remember seeing a Proton Yellow VX when they first arrived and noted how unusual they looked. Can't remember seeing another until a I bought this one off craigslist. Luckily, there is a small group of enthusiasts who share info and parts unique to the VX. Had planned to bring it to Seaside, this summer. See you next year !
