    God Im old A friend of mine working his way through college sold or at least attempted to these things at the local Buick dealer as a part time job. But ugh, those Vauxhalls. Accordingly, this engine was the most popular engine in the Rodeo, and the Rodeo sold very well overall, nearing the sales numbers of the Toyota Hilux , traditionally the best-selling commercial vehicle in Australia. I remember the first Car and Driver road test of the Chevy Chevette, where they called it a rear-wheel-drive shitbox.

    Conceived as a more financially feasible replacement for the German Opel range, which had enjoyed a niche market being sold through Buick dealers, the Buick Opel by Isuzu was based on General Motors T-body range, which included the Vauxhall Chevette, Opel Kadett and our own Holden Gemini, amongst many, many others.

    Buick dealers had changed their signage to include "Opel", however by the early s, the compact Opel Kadett B was both aging and expensive, with the US dollar dropping against the Deautsche Mark. Although mechanically and visually dissimilar, the DNA was evident in small things like windscreens, door handles and the door apertures themselves. Furthermore, Pontiac had their own version, the , like the Chevette available in a 3-door and 5-door hatch only.

    The final model year, , brought more detail changes including square headlights different to those in our TD-model and variations to the stripe packages.

    Notable was the absence of the Opel name, with the car now being marketed as simply "Buick Opel". The Buick Opel by Isuzu is pretty rare over in the States now; enthusiasts of the earlier, German-built Buick Opels are Europhiles at heart, shunning the Japanese designed and constructed Buick Opel by Isuzu, while remaining virtually unknown to JDM enthusiasts as well.

    A friend and I inspected one on the outskirts of LA, but it was in sad condition. This one came up on Craigslist California but it turned out it was actually in Michigan. I spoke briefly to the previous owner, Alan Wandrei and we quickly negotiated a price. He was unable to source a sedan; they appear to be rarer than the coupe, he found this white coupe in Texas and had it shipped up North. Alan had retrimmed the interior in brown vinyl and collected a bunch of hard-to-find NOS parts including badges and side trims.

    Many of the parts he had collected he admitted to buying from eBay Australia from Gemini enthusiasts. It owes me probably a couple of grand for the boat and about the same in mechanical work getting it roadworthy.

    I had to throw it at my mechanic to get a bunch of stuff done, including the front brakes same as Gemini , rear brakes Gemini Diesel and the auto transmission which, weirdly, turned out to be a GM Hydramatic Aussie Geminis used locally-built Trimatic autos but the Isuzu Gemini ran a Japanese-built Aisin, so why they elected to install a T, renown for its spectacular failure rate, is beyond me.

    I had previously bought a genuine South Carolina numberplate with a similar numbering convention from a souvenir shop with a view to putting it on a car. South Australian registration rules prevent left-hand-drive cars being significantly modified from standard. My Buick Opel by Isuzu is standard in every way except for a TX-model Gemini heater tap, which turned out to be different but adaptable, and a retrimmed interior.
