Had one of those sitting in my neighbor's driveway about a year ago. He was storing it for someone who had been evicted. Supposedly had a blown head gasket. probably could have picked it up for a song, but too many projects already. Most likely ended up in a boneyard. Dennis

almost any of "those type" of 4WD vehicles (like the Daihatsu Rocky and Suzuki Samurai) have become quite desirable, depending on year model of course

I would totally get a Suzuki Samurai for farm use if they weren't so pricey (relatively speaking), but heck I can get a 1950's Jeep cheaper around here

Yep. Had 2 Sammis. Down here, if you can find one (not trashed) for under 5 grand, buy it and flip it (resale - no pun on the Samauri history). A guy in the next county is snagging them up and restore / resell / parts. Kind of the J5 of the Suzuki set. Dennis

Saw one a few days ago on CL in SC for around $1,600; it's not road legal (no paperwork me thinks) but looks like it has some decent mods

tempted! But alas, my heart now belongs to Isuzu :love4:

Yeah, had to run up to my Bro in law's Saturday. He's in Lutz (N. of Tampa - formerly redneckville, now yuppie land). Took the "scenic" route back and there in the middle of nowhere was a fairly straight Samurai with a hard top and a patina of slime all over it and grass growing under it. Kept driving and avoided the temptation. Dennis

My dad and I each have Samurai Tin Tops, an '86 and '87. Sadly, they don't run and live under car covers on the side of my parents house at the moment. Once my Trooper is back in proper working order I really need to get mine running again. Owned it since I was 16, can't let it go.
