Joe Isuzu (David Leisure) gained fame and fortune for lying, while the cars he shilled never really achieved much of either. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Impulse is semi-famous, and that's no lie, but is its price worth giving up some of your fortune?
Isuzu wasn't the only company to see its fortunes fade in the US market, long before the Japanese GM derivative tucked tail and exited the game, so did the British maker of hair-chested sportsters of another era, Triumph. But before the Brits gave up on the Colonies, they dropped some beautiful bombs here, like yesterday's 1972 GT6 coupe. Looking like a half-scale Jag XKE, and rocking a price that wouldn't break the bank, that bodacious Brit managed a remarkable 85% Nice Price win for its Texas trouble.
