Mid Week Match-Up; An 88 Impulse For Dad

Today's Mid Week Match-Up comes as a request from Bri, who writes: Hello! Christmas is coming up and I would like to purchase a 1988 isuzu impulse for my dad. When he was a kid he had to give up this car to get money for his family, he cried. I would like to know where one of these cars would be available and the price. 

The best I could find in a quick search of the list of craigs was this 1991 Isuzu Impulse RS Turbo offered for $2200 in Colorado.  All wheel drive and flaky paint come standard.

Find something better!


  1. Come for the cars. Stay for the amazing stories about why we love them.

  2. Sorry, no luck during a quick search of the Pacific Northwest list'o'Craig's.

  3. Her "Dad" had an '88 Impulse when HE was a kid? I could see he had a '41 Ford...but an '88 Impulse? Holy Mother Mary!

  4. Found a very decent one of these 10-12 years ago on a small car lot in central Ohio. Yes, it was an Isuzu Impulse RS Turbo, in bright red with a 5-speed manual transmission. I actually test drove it and nothing was wrong with it. It had about 86K well-kept miles. Wanted to buy it but I already had too many cars and no place to keep it. This may be the "rust belt" part of the country, but I still see cars from the 1980s in very good shape being driven, probably by the grandchildren of the original owners.
