Isuzu Swag

Postby superman27344 » Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:58 am

I got this little gem off of ebay recently and it got me to thinking about how much other Isuzu Swag is out there. I have seen keychains, hats, even plush toys of Troopers and VX's. I figured that it might be cool to have a thread where we could all show off the promotional items with Isuzu's logo on it that we have.

Your post got me looking. I came across a book for sale called, "Six Weeks in An Isuzu: Crossing Boarders from Chattanooga to the Panama Canal." Apparently this couple lives in my hometown! I'm going to see if I can find them!

I just searched that title, pretty interesting description of the book.

A couple embark on a drive from their home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to the Panama Canal in a 13-year-old Isuzu Trooper. This book details their day-to-day experiences over six weeks in 2004. With no definite plans except to drive to the Panama Canal, no hotel reservations, and no set itinerary, they begin their trip. Sometimes they stay in one place only one night, and other times they stay for several days.They encounter difficult border crossings, a nerve-wracking evening on the summit of the Mountain of Death, and a man's body stretched out across one lane of a major highway. They also find a fascinating variety of ecological elements: tropical orchids growing wild, philodendron the size of trees, monkeys of various kinds, crocodiles, iguanas, geckos, volcanoes, huge lakes, and beaches with varying colors of sand. This account shows what they experienced and what they gained in their six-week drive from their home to the canal.

I found out a little info about them through some careful searching. I know where she works now and I have a mutual friend that works there as well. I'll try to get the back story before contacting them. I've driven by their house many many times, but I've never noticed an isuzu. I wonder if they still have it stashed somewhere!

It would be cool if they did, even cooler if you could get a signed copy of the book.
