1989 Dodge Raider

Hey there, look what we have spotted recently – the gloriously boxy and small SUV from Dodge in the late 1980’s – dubbed the “Raider”.  Now this car is basically a re-badged Mitsubishi Pajero and that’s OK with us, in matter of fact it probably makes this Dodge SUV more competent. This boxy two-door SUV checks all the boxes for LACS. Enjoy

And check out some other small boxy SUVs we’ve spotted:

1985 Ford Bronco II

1986 Suzuki Samurai (Jimny)

1986 Suzuki Samurai (Jimny)

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.
