1981 Isuzu I-Mark Diesel







The town bicycle on a global scale.  Call it an IsuzuHoldenOpelDaewooVauxhall.  A rare find in the U.S. and even rarer in the salty Northeast.

  3. Great cars and hardly seen today. While Mercedes diesels of this era stood the test of time, diesels from other car manufactures seemed to only be a trend.

  5. I notice cars and remember them. I honestly have not seen one of these for at least 15 years.I saw an earlier "Buick/opel" (essentially the same car) a few years back, and those are almost fully extinct in the US. Yet these have remained elusive.
    You see diesel Benzes because they were extremely well-built and withstand anything you throw at them, so people buy them based on reputation, but all other diesel cars got sold for scrap as quickly as possible. Add to it that Isuzus were obscure in the US when they were still new at the dealerships, and these cars never stood a chance at being preserved.

  6. I dunno what you're talking about but here in the PNW there are tons of VW diesels old school still running around.
