I remember the Isuzu Bellet GT-R well. A friend of mine had one imported
in the mid '70's. A jewel of an engine, a very good looking car but the
road holding left much to be desired. Total rubbish. Springs and shock
absorbers were not matched at all. In those days you could go to the
KONI factory here in Holland where they would build custom made shock
absorbers for you at no extra charge. It improved matters considerably.
Lesser Bellets were fairly popular (all things relative) over here.
Other Isuzu's were not so.
