What is your favorite discontinued off-road vehicle?

How many times have you run across an off-road rig that's no longer produced and thought, "Man, those were too cool. It's too bad they still don't make those."

Maybe it's a Jeep Cherokee, a full-size Ford Bronco or Chevrolet Blazer; maybe a Suzuki Samurai or Sidekick, or an International Scout. How about on the powersports side? Remember the Honda ATC250R three wheeler? (I still see these at the dunes from time to time). Or how about some of the old-school quads from Suzuki, such as the QuadRacer 250 or original King Quad?

I was on ExpeditionPortal.com the other day and saw a thread about the Isuzu VehiCROSS, which was available in the U.S. from 1999-2001. These space-aged 4x4s were totally different and some might say ahead of their time. For instance, they came with monotube shocks with heat expansion chambers. I've always thought these rigs were cool, totally different, and they can be built up to be very capable, too. Heck, people even built race versions. Although I'll probably never own one, they're still one of my favorite 4x4s due to to the fact that even today, they look totally different.
