1981 AMC Eagle SX4, 4.2L inline 6 cylinder motor with auto transmission and all wheel drive. Runs and shifts good. Carb has been rebuilt recently, along with replacing most vacuum lines. Just replaced upper ball joints and control arm bushings, lower control arm bushings, and sway bar links. Heat works great, A/C was retrofitted for R-134 and worked great last summer. Cruise control works. Exterior is in good shape, was repainted AMC Big Bad Orange about 5 years ago. Also had Ziebart undercoating from the factory, so it doesn't have any of the common rust problems underneath. Interior is in good shape, there is one crack on the dash panel. Has a Grant steering wheel. Hood release handle is not broken like a lot of Eagles (common problem) and still functions properly. It does have a few issues: needs a new headliner, driver's window switch needs to be pressed hard to work, needs rear hatch struts, the plastic rocker panel is cracked near rear wheel (see pic), and it could use new front shocks. Odometer reads just shy of 107K miles, but quit working about 6 months ago on me. Has been garaged all winter, just pulled it out about 2 months ago to change the oil and drive it around a bit. I don't drive the car daily, so it has had very few miles put on it since the odometer quit working. Overall, this is a very nice Eagle with no rust, and mechanically sound. I also have it for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if it sells locally first. Buyer to make shipping arrangements. $500 non-refundable deposit due at end of auction. Full price to be paid, along with shipping/pickup arrangements to be made within 7 days of auction end. Any other questions, feel free to ask. Thanks.

Say what you will about its smallest SUVs, but you have to hand it to Suzuki: the likes of the Samurai, Sidekick and Vitara were doing the little-sport-ute-that-could thing long before most of the rest of the industry caught on. And the formula remains relevant enough that Suzuki is still selling the same basic Samurai overseas as the Jimny.

That could be why the Samurai still has something of a cult following. Well, that and the name - which, as it turns out, may not have been such a stretch after all. A Samurai warrior, after all, was just one man - but like any other knight, he was worth more than his headcount on the battlefield. Or in this case, a Japanese snowstorm. Just watch the half-minute video below to see what we mean.
Suzuki is known for having a pair of very capable sportbikes in its GSX-R750 and GSXR-1000, but now the Japanese company is recalling 23,073 of them in the US to replace the chain adjuster. Specifically, the campaign affects 2011-2014 model year versions of the 750 and the 2009-2014 1000.

According to documents from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the problem can occur if riders miss a gear while upshifting. It's possible that the following shift might put enough added strain on the drivetrain to move the rear axle. This can damage the left-side chain adjuster. If there's too much harm done to the part, then the chain could potentially slip off the bike, leaving the powerless bike more vulnerable to a crash.
To fix the problem, Suzuki dealers will "replace the left-side adjuster with an improved part" that will be heat-treated to be stronger. Scroll down to read the full recall report.
We haven't heard much about Suzuki since it decided to leave the US market in 2012, but things are going well for the little automaker these days with the recent announcement of record annual profits. It would seem that investors should be ecstatic, but they are starting to question the man at the helm. Company president and chairman Osamu Suzuki is now 84 years old and is guaranteed at least one more year as the leader, but shareholders want to know who is taking his place when the inevitable happens.
We're not being ageist, here. As long as the Suzuki can run the company to the satisfaction of investors, he absolutely deserves the top spot. According to Bloomberg, the issue making shareholders so edgy is that the business doesn't have a transition plan in place. The president obviously isn't a young man, and folks are worried that if something happens suddenly, there could be chaos deciding a successor and a free-falling stock price.
Suzuki's tenure at the company is somewhat astounding. He married the granddaughter of the founder and took her name because the family had no male heirs. In world where many people hope to retire as soon as possible, he's worked for the same automaker for the last 50 years, including stints as company president from 1978 to 2000 and 2008 to the present. Investors aren't questioning the president's ability as a business leader; they just want a clearer understanding of the automaker's future direction.
