One of the most unique imports of the late 20th century came from Japan in 1990 in the form of the Isuzu Amigo. It was a short wheelbase 2-door SUV with a rear hatch door and canvas top. Isuzu Amigo parts were sourced largely from the Isuzu truck chassis, making it a rugged and durable vehicle. Groups of off-road and 4x4 enthusiasts enjoy modifying the 4WD Amigo for use on the trail or through the desert. It was sold alongside the longer 4-door Isuzu Rodeo, which was considerably more popular but less desirable for serious off-roaders. After a brief hiatus from 1995-97, it returned with a redesigned body, new engine, and updated suspension. It was, again, a shortened version of the Rodeo, but its name was superseded to "Rodeo Sport" in 2001 in hopes that the more successful model name would help influence sales. Fun fact: the Isuzu Amigo was sold in many different countries under all sorts of names by large automakers such as Vauxhall, Opel, Honda, Holden, and Chevrolet.
