Up For auction is my 1988 Samurai Hardtop.  This is a rare item as it is almost 100% rust free!  Excellent looking and excellent running/mechanical condition.  I drove 5 hrs to pick up this samurai from western PA then drove it home.  It was owned by two mechanics prior to me.  They did a lot of work to it,  which I will try to describe.

here is the list of things I think are worth mentioning,

Has a Weber Carb,,Thorley Headers, new high preformace clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing,  upgraded blue halogen headlights,  aftermarket brush guard with front end tow hitch,  new rear shocks,  new serpentine belt,  has recent new brakes,  recent tune up,  does not leak oil or any other fluids,  runs great throughout all rpms,  aftermarket front seats.  Truck was painted from its original teal green to black.  the undercarriage has been done with some type of protective spray.  It has a 4 inch spoa lift with the appropriate axle spacers.  15 inch Mickey Thompson Classic wheels,  31x70x15 Mickey Thompson Super Swampers with about 80% tread life,  the tires and rims alone are worth about $1000 used. The front and rear windows have been replaced and there is new rubber surrounds for each.

There is a spot of surface rust that you can see starting to bubble under the paint just below the windshield on the passengers side. it is about two inches long and a inch wide. ,I have not been able to engage the four wheel drive,,it may be something I am doing wrong, I never had it looked at.  Other than that ,this is a daily driver.  It starts right up and has never let me down.   I do love this Samurai.  I hate to sell it but I need the money....It turns heads wherever it goes!  This is a no reserve auction and it will go to the highest bidder.  Please be ready to pay in cash or certified check within three days of auctions end,  or don't bid.   If you want to pay me with a certified check,,thats fine,,but be aware,,the title will not switch hands until that check is cashed. I have heard of certified check scams on ebay and refuse to be that victim.

Can be seen and test driven in Ocean City NJ,,feel free to call me with any questions or comments,,609-780-0050,  but there will be no but it now price. Bid with confidence,,though this is an awesome little truck,,,Happy Bidding,,  Jeff

It's a hard knock life for a N"urburgring rental car

Wed, 12 Dec 2012 10:15:00 EST

Rental cars get no respect. They're abused, misused and flogged mercilessly as athletes in Rental Car Olympics. And that's just at your everyday airport rental counter. The torture gets extreme for rental cars thrashed around Germany's infamous Nürburgring.
Rent4Ring expects its customers to drive its cars around the 'Ring with enthusiasm and, in some cases, less skill than the pros. Rent4Ring just recently retired its Suzuki Swift Sport from its fleet and shared the car's two-year-plus lifetime highlights.
The little hatchback made more than 2,800 laps of the 'Ring over three seasons amounting to more than 310,000 miles driven by 457 different drivers. "Some were fast, some were slow. Some were nice to the car, a few were frankly awful," says a Rent4Ring rep.

IIHS says these are the safest cars of 2013

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 19:15:00 EST

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.
To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.

This is the facelifted Suzuki SX4 that we won't get

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 14:29:00 EST

The car you see above is, according to China Car Times, the facelifted Suzuki SX4 crossover. We've always had a soft spot for the SX4, so the fact that it's finally getting a significant update makes us a wee bit sad - after all, Suzuki just announced late last year that it's leaving the US market, so we'll never get this upgraded little 'ute on our shores.
Changes we can see include aggressively resculpted lighting units, interesting mold lines on the front bumper cap, redesigned air intakes and unique trim fillets on the doors.
At least we can take solace in the fact that there apparently aren't any significant alterations under the new bodywork, so our crop of used SX4s should be just as capable out on the road. In China, Suzuki's 1.6- and 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are expected to carry over to the new year, along with the current model's CVT and manual drivelines.
