I am selling this vehicle for my uncle. He bought it as a toy to play with, and I guess he's tired of playing with it. Mechanically the engine seems to be top notch with lots of new parts on it. From what I can see the plugs, wires, carburator, and maybe even valve covers look new. It starts and runs good, has been lifted, and sitting on 31 inch tires. It runs down the road straight, and the seats are actually really comfortable. The bikini top is new, but it does not have another top, and the drivers window broke while my uncle was tinkering with the window regulator. He has both inside door panels off, but they will both be included with the vehicle. The four wheel drive works good, but appeared to have a slight leak on the transfer case. All in all it's a solid vehicle with absolutely NO rust whatsoever, and would make a very nice start to restoring, or an awesome deer camp vehicle. Feel free to message me with any questions, and I will do my best to answer them.
This vehicle is also for sale locally, but to keep things fair I will not sell it before the end of the sale. Thanks for looking, and Happy Bidding!!!

Way back in 2004, Volkswagen took umbrage with Suzuki being granted permission to use the nameplate "SWIFT GTi" for a performance variant of its small-car offering (2012 equivalent seen here). Now, eight years and surely some very steep legal bills later, VW has finally dropped its claim against Suzuki.

The General Court of the European Union stated, back in March of this year, that Suzuki's GTi registration could not be confused with VW's "Golf GTI." Volkswagen had appealed that ruling, though has now reportedly called off the dogs. In fact, Germany's Die Welt reports that the appeal has been dead for several weeks now.
This news comes amongst continued arbitration acrimony between the two automakers, all revolving around VW's forced divestiture of nearly 20-percent stake it purchased in Suzuki some two years ago.
American Suzuki Motors is leaving us, but as long as the lights are on at YouTube, its commercials will stay behind to remind of the times we shared. We dug up nine commercials - sort of like a Time Life infomercial for an entire brand - and among the starring actors are the X-90 improving the 90s with the help of a Pez dispenser, the Peter Pan-ish Sidekick, Optimus Prime getting his pipes all smoked up over the 1987 Samurai and an XL7 that would have sold in the millions if its commercial were even half true.

We've also included a remarkably oddball eight-minute featurette/commercial about a giant Suzuki Swift. You'll find the retrospective in the videos below. Enjoy.
It's not a secret that a few of us here at Autoblog have a crush on Japanese Kei cars. The diminutive sizes and cheeky looks of most of the segment are certainly endearing factors, but it was the sporting Kei cars of the 1990s that made for the most delicious forbidden fruit.
Suzuki's entry in that time and market space was the Cappuccino, a rear-wheel-drive coupe with a removable roof and roll bar, powered by a 657cc three-cylinder motor. The car hung around the Japanese market until 1997 (and was booted up in Gran Turismo form for years after that). Now, rumor has it that the little coupe could be getting a reboot around 2016.
The reports are still a bit short on detail; some indicate that a new Cappuccino could be built up on an existing Kei platform from Suzuki. If the new car were to keep the RWD layout of the original, however, that would mean building up the model on the live-rear-axle bones of the Suzuki Jimny or Carry.
