The year is 1990, the neon glows bright and trucks just started to come into vogue with the Ford Explorer reaching dealerships. The vehicle in the ad in question didn't begin the trend that started years before by a "tippy" competitor, but was one of the more interesting selections in the bunch. Answer at the link.
1990 was the first year for the Isuzu Amigo, which was introduced in spring of 1989. The Amigo met the Suzuki Samurai head on with a wider stance to help stability. Isuzu stressed the ?sport? in small sport utilities. $9,459 huh?
