Isuzu Good Bastards

Real drivers telling it like it is

Watch the videos about our Isuzu Good Bastards:

What's a Good Bastard you ask? Well, we think they're a cracker person. Just an absolute legend. Someone who drives an Isuzu of course. 

And well, our vehicles are so bloody good that many of our customers trade in their old Isuzu, for a brand new one. That right there is a Good Bastard.

Meet rata smith from catlins

 Rata Smith is a farm manager from the deep south. He's been a D-Max owner for a while now and loves it. He uses it to get around the remote terrain, all while towing a boat for those fishing trips. He's pretty tough that Rata Smith. Almost as tough as his D-Max. What a Tough Bastard.

Meet Brian Dickison from southland

 Brian Dickison is a Southland legend. He's also a dog trialing champion - but he says that's all down to Cole, his dog. Brian's been competing for more than 30 years. To relax, Brian likes to take his D-Max out hunting. His son usually goes with him, and luckily they both have D-Max's. You wouldn't get far otherwise. What a Tough Bastard.
