Hideously 80's sexxay (virtually no contoured bodylines FTW).







Plus, look how much meat you can fit in the rear!

Buy a parts car to go with it.

Otherwise they are awesome looking cars.

I like the first generation Impulse - pretty unique platform. I rarely if ever see them on the road. Keep in mind the turbo cars only mad about 140hp and did 0-60 in over 8 seconds. So...you'll have to modify it before you make any real power.

The second generation Impulse was FWD and was essentially a rebadged Geo Storm.

I love the way the side looks with some giant tires.

The Isuzu was a rebadged Geo Storm? The guys who assembled both cars in the Isuzu plant would probably be surprised to hear that.

EDIT: and it was available with AWD and a 160 bhp turbo 1.6l 4. Pretty slick for the time.
