Uncommonly built platforms are one of the most enjoyable features we have a chance to shoot not only because of the eye candy they provide, but because we gain an opportunity to show the world something truly unique. This 1992 Isuzu is so clean you could eat off of it. That being said, however, when Jeremie Leblanc of Gonzales, Louisiana, set out to save the Rodeo from the junkyard, many words described the small SUV—but unique would probably not be one of them.
