 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.

Japanese motorcycles moving into forced induction

Sat, 30 Nov 2013 18:03:00 EST

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.

Next Suzuki SX4 spotted again

Wed, 05 Sep 2012 09:31:00 EST

Thanks to a sketch of the Suzuki S-Cross concept, we can already see the styling direction that the next-generation SX4 will take, and Suzuki is still hard at work on the production version of the car as evidenced by this latest batch of spy shots. These photos look almost identical to those captured back in July, but we see a little more detail at the rear of the car and get a better idea of the next SX4's proportions.
With the baggy camouflage lifted up at the rear of this prototype, we can see that the SX4 replacement has a very Mazda-chic look to it with downward-angled taillights that stretch into the liftgate. Aside from this, the big news is that we're finally getting a sense of the new SX4's size. Suzuki's press release attached to the Paris-bound S-Cross sketch said that the SX4 replacement would be growing to the compact segment rather than being a subcompact like the current car. Recent reports indicate that the next version of this car will be sized closer to the Grand Vitara, and in these pictures, you can definitely see how much the car has grown.
Still unknown is when we can expect to see the production version of the new SX4, or what will be inside it (available turbo power?), but hopefully Suzuki will not delay things like it did with the Kizashi and its numerous concepts.

Suzuki Authentics Concept is genuine but drab

Sat, 20 Apr 2013 13:59:00 EST

Looks can certainly be deceiving. Have a glance at this new Suzuki Authentics concept, for example - we were told that this would, essentially, be a proper sedan version of the new SX4, but our folks on the ground in Shanghai tell us it's actually much larger. Like, bigger than the Kizashi. (Hey, remember the Kizashi?)
Regardless, Suzuki says that the Authentics concept previews a C-segment vehicle for the Chinese market. A good move, too, since that segment has the highest volume in the Chinese market. (That's why automakers like Ford, for example, have more than one offering in the class.) If we're honest, the Authentics concept looks a bit "meh" for our tastes - there isn't a whole lot of emotion going on here with the design. Consider it a competitor for that spiffy new Ford Escort that also took the stage here in Shanghai.
We don't have any more details about the Authentics concept at the moment, but considering the fact that Suzuki has officially exited the US market, at least we don't have to worry about this thing showing up on our shores anytime soon.
