Joe Isuzu Isn’t Selling This One

Joe Isuzu Isn’t Selling This One

1991 Lotus Elan

Remember Joe Isuzu? The pathological liar who fictionally represented Isuzu cars in the ’80s?

He had nothing to do with this Isuzu-powered roadster. Maybe if he had, it might have sold better. Despite the poor timing – bringing this out around the same time as the much cheaper, rear-drive Miata – this was a very good car. Some say it was the best-handling front-drive car ever.

This one looks quite good, with minimal wear evidencing the low miles. It’s sure to be a classic someday.

It’s on eBay in New York with reserve not yet met.
