I &hearts the 80s: 1987 Isuzu Impulse RS

As tacky as that short-lived '80s monochrome mania looks now, this car amounted to a total design tour de force when it was introduced, and it's still striking. One year after this example Isuzu started outsourcing the suspension tuning to Lotus (!), and if I'm not mistaken these were rear-drivers, so who knows? Could actually be kinda fun.

Dude gets major anal points for carefully masking the tag numbers while leaving the Rockies intact btw, a meticulous over-attention to detail that's totally in keeping with the rest of the car.
