Spotted this 86′ Samurai (known as the Jimny elsewhere) the other day in Culver City, CA. This Suzuki might be tiny in stature, but it has more rugged off-road capability than SUV’s twice it’s size. The short wheelbase helps it crest mountain trails with ease. This old Suzuki might be fun and nimble to traverse off-road paths, but it’s asthmatic 1.3 liter 63hp motor make for a terrifying journey among American motorways where 200hp is the new norm.
By the way – Suzuki is introducing a new Jimny in international markets. Enjoy these pics.
Happy end of October! Another month has concluded and with it, the LACS hodgepodge makes it’s appearance. Yet again, this one is light because of the wedding.
This month, we only posted 2 car spottings. One was a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo cloaked in black and sporting excellent chrome wheels; a perfect match. We also saw a 1970 Cadillac DeVille – man are those big cars.
Enjoy this and look forward to even more next month!
A lion crouches in the brush, waiting attentively, stalking it’s prey. A hyena cackles in the distance to laugh at the prey’s impending doom an an elephant grazes in a watering hole not far, thirsting for the last liquid on the Sahara. These are things you might see if you were cruising the land in this Toyota Land Cruiser. However, I suspect the only lands this Toyota has roamed have been the pavement filled, human dominated landscapes of LA.
Check out another, slightly older Toyota Land Cruiser we spotted earlier this year.
