Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Commerical time: 1977 Isuzu Gemini

We all know the first generation Isuzu Gemini was based upon the Opel Kadett C (third generation), but what I didn’t know was that Isuzu actually upgraded its specs to Japanese standard:

Yes, that’s a Kadett C with not only headlight washers but actually double headlight washers! Now that’s something you can misuse to squirt on girls! :D

Isuzu also prolonged the Gemini beyond the FWD Kadett D by giving it a mild facelift. To prove they did a great job on that they launched this comparison commercial:

Now if it also could also fly as good as the Space Shuttle it would be even better than the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am. :P
