    And Astral Silver was exciting enough to be Isuzu's official promotional color for the VX, too...

    Here she is again...

    1999
    110,000
    I've only owned it maybe 2 months but in that time I have added 3 inch OME springs with torsion bar crank, SBC window brackets and spare tire brackets, New stereo head unit and 10 inch sub in back, and I repaired a bad blower resistor and removed the hot wired toggle switch a PO installed for the blower on/off. Also I greased up the plastic with some Back 2 Black. Oh yeah, almost forgot, I pulled out two non-working sets of fog lights and a chunk of PO wiring and installed a slick pair of Pilot lights in the factory location hooked to the factory wiring.

    Here's my astral parked at Makapu'u beach on the island of oahu, Hawaii

    It's one of 3 on the island to the best of my knowledge. Sorry, I don't have the vin#. Just hit 113,000 miles and running strong.

    Well, since this thread is for VX's which came in the Astral shade of silver...
    I feel no need to post what year mine is...
    (hint: no climate control)

    I think my vin shows up elsewhere...

    She's creeping up on 70k, & showing the abuse I've given her, primarily in the cosmetic dept...



    Here are the best representations of how she currently looks...

    Regardless of color (because Ebony IS the fastest) I think Suzy is the baddest looking VX out there.

    Dub,
    The only two that I can think of off the top of my head that are anywhere near Suzy's bad assness are JoFotoz and LittleBeast. OH, and I can't remember his screen name right now, but the buy who has the "MOTH" (I think) tag line at the bottom of his posts. That think looks post apocolyptic.

    Smile CowboyErik's Vehicross VX; CINCINNATI Ohio

    I finnally got a Vehicross two years ago now. I first saw one in mission to Mars a decade ago and wondered what it was. Now I've been an owner for two years. My VX loves gas and oil! But I expected that but I did not expect it to swallow so much oil. I believe I have one with the limited drain back holes in the oil rings. My VX consumes about a 1 quart of oil every 250miles on the highway. It doesnot blacken oil or leak, it just eats it! Gets about 15miles to the gallon, sometimes worse and never better. I'm changing brake rotors this month and thus fitting new bearings all around so it will be interesting to see if there is any change.

    I also have 1980 Fiat Spider softtop convertable, and a pair of Bertone-Fiat X1/9's. The most practical car I own is my Nissan Quest. I am currently installing a new radio/mp3 player in my VX replacing a pioneer headunit that the previous owner installed and broke on me last month.

    My next mod will be fitting larger OEM Isuzu rims on the car with new INDY500 FireHawk's which are my favorite tires on all my vehicles that they fit.
