This weekend a friend and I revived and gave an Isuzu Impulse some new life at the Utah Gambler 500 off-road rally. It’s actually a 1992 Geo Storm, which is a rebadged Isuzu Impulse. The storm never got the good looks or performance of the Impulse, but it’s 4-Cylinder, 1.6L engine is a tank. With a short cold air intake and a straight piped exhaust, nothing was able to stop this car. If you’re not familiar with the gambler 500 race, check it out. Chances are there’s one happening in your state. Best weekend of the year. #gambler500#geostorm#isuzu#isuzuimpulse#planetisuzoo#isuzumafia#offroadcar#geo#offroadtrip#offroad#racecar#builtnotbought
Rode with my friends in the Utah Gambler 500 this weekend! It is a car rally where you take impractical vehicles improbable distances to impossible places and clean up garbage along the way. It was an absolute blast! Thanks JW Irons, @lanceirons, for the Neosporin (Plymouth Neon) Russ Howe, Phil Tindall for a chase Truck, and Chris and Lance Thayne for the chase Jeep! ABG! @thegambler500#gambler500#utahgambler500#plymouthneon#neon#utah#sanpete
Had a blast at the #utahgambler500 I bent my control arm to the point it was undriveable and was able to pull the part out on the trail. Unfortunately I couldn't get a new one, so I jumped in the suburban with @bpickett2610 We finished the event with 490 miles put down in the burb despite many other struggles. I'll be going back out to the west desert for the rest of the control arm fix, but had an amazing experience.
Had an incredible time this weekend with incredible people. Glad I got to meet those I did this weekend. Headed home after about half of day two cause we had other stuff to do. Wish we could've stayed out longer. Dodgy did great! No leaks or anything. Worse things that happened are I smashed into a little washout and it really stiffened up the steering but still drove fine, and after bouncing on some rocks trying to get up a really rough road the front driver side wheel wobbled a little. Can't wait until next year. Maybe we'll keep Dodgy around until then or maybe we'll find another vehicle but with what great shape Dodgy is in just may have to keep it! #utahgambler500#gambler500#offroad#offroading
