Chevy had a financial interest in Isuzu. There were a number of re-badged cars sold here as Chevys. The LUV pick up was just one of them. The Chevy Geo's were Isuzus. A family member had a Geo Storm, it got great gas mileage.
Ford had a similar arrangement with Mazda. The Ford Courier was a Mazda pick up. The swap of a small-block Ford V8 into those was another popular mod. I knew a local mechanic who had an early 1970's Mazda pick up, he swapped a Mazda rotary into it, and that was fast! It had the rotary buzzzz
sound, which would wind higher and higher, and that little truck embarrassed many a local Camaro and Mustang. Last I saw it, he was at a Ft. Lauderdale Caddy/Chevy/GMC dealership. I first met him when he was at a so. FL Yamaha dealership.
The Mazda rotary-engined racers were popular in IMSA in the 1980's. There was no doubt about which cars passing were rotaries! The Spice chassis was a popular IMSA platform for the rotary-engine Mazda powerplants.
There is a British company now building a rotary track bike, but it's well over $100K. The principal was previously involved with the Norton Rotary bikes. Norton had both air-cooled and water-cooled rotary-engined bikes, their race-only rotaries were successful in the late 1980's-early 1990's.
