I have had this Samurai since about 2004. I drove it every day for quite a few years and then just when needed in the winter. It's never given me a problem.
It has the Sidekick conversion that makes it very desirable. I also have an extra sidekick engine that I can sell separately. The Sidekick engine really give a Samurai much needed horsepower.
This Samurai has been in the Pennsylvania winters and does have rust as you can see. It has been patched over the years and has always passed inspection. The windshield is cracked as the hood flew up one day and cracked it. It has good tires.
It has been started up regularly, but with the ethanol gas the fuel pump was clogging up. It has just been replaced.
When I moved it last, a brake line blew. I bought the new brake line, but have not installed it. The rest of the brakes are good. You can replace the brake line or crimp it shut.
It's always had a hard top on it which has protected it inside. I am keeping the hard top, but have a nice soft top and bows that will go with it.
There is also a spare for it, not shown.
You are welcome to come see it or drive it if you are near Somerset. This would make a good trail vehicle or daily driver.
A $500 non-refundable deposit is due within 24 hours of end of auction. Balance is due within 7 days. Car must be picked up within 14 days unless prior arrangements have been made.

Even though American Suzuki Motor Corporation filed for bankruptcy last year and stopped selling cars in the US and Canada as part of its reorganization, there are still plenty of countries around the world where Suzuki continues to sell autos. For those markets, the automaker is working on a compact sport-utility vehicle, called the iV-4, which will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Suzuki says the iV-4 "embodies the basic ruggedness of an SUV," and that its styling is modern and innovative. We'll have to take Suzuki's word on that one, though the teaser above certainly looks the part, with the grille reminding us of the one found on the Jeep Grand Cherokee (minus a few slats, of course).
Scroll down for the short-and-sweet press release, and expect the full brace of information to be revealed in September.
As much as we knew it was a possibility, we have to say that Suzuki's announcement this afternoon that it is filing chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings caught us a bit off guard. American Suzuki Motor Corporation - the sole distributor of Suzuki automobiles in the United States - will realign its business to focus on motorcycles, ATVs and the marine market.

What does this mean in simple terms? In short, new Suzuki cars and trucks will no longer be sold by Suzuki in the United States once current supplies run out. Period.
Suzuki cites "low sales volumes, a limited number of models in its lineup, unfavorable foreign exchange rates, the high costs associated with growing and maintaining an automotive distribution system in the continental US and the disproportionally high and increasing costs associated with stringent state and federal regulatory requirements unique to the US market."
While turbocharging and supercharging may be nothing new in the automotive industry, motorcycle engines are almost always naturally aspirated. But even that's beginning to change. At the Tokyo Motor Show last week, two major Japanese companies showed off new forced-induction motorbike engines.
Kawasaki rolled in with a supercharged four-cylinder motorbike engine. It offered little in the way of details, disclosing only that the turbine blades were developed in-house to withstand the heat and vibration of spooling up at motorbike speeds.
Suzuki is taking a different approach, however. Its Recursion concept bike packs a turbocharged 588cc two-cylinder engine with a turbocharger and intercooler. The compact package churns out just under 100 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque, packaged into a motorbike that weighs just 384 pounds dry.
