Video - How to drive your Suzuki offroad

Stumbled across this video last night and thought it needed to be posted up. It's a vintage Suzuki video showing some driving tips for offroad. All the vehicles appear to be right hand drive SJ-410s. Worth watching for the fun of it. Even looks pretty good in full screen.

So did you learn anything?

That was pretty sweet.

I like the pic of the engine. The intake/injection and aircleaner box were totally different.

Moral of the story? We need to find a way to import new ones back into the country!

X2, I would jump all over a chance to buy a new one. Instead the US manufacturers keep making bloated turds or minivan like junk.
With gas prices soaring you would think US manufactures could figure out it is possible to make a capable vehicle without it being a bloated pig.

the reason the engine compartment was different in these ones is becauce they are SJ410's they are also pre 1985.

Wow

I love it.
I'll stop my build and import a stock JDM truck.
Should I take the 660 turbo or the 550 2 strokes?

Did anyone else notice no factory roll bars in the convertibles?

The Sj410s didn't come with a rollbar. The targa bar was the roll bar ala the Sidekick.

When Suzuki introduced the Samurai to the US and Canada in 1985-86, Suzuki installed a roll bar and the windshield to targa bar supports. However, on the flipside, we lost the fold down windshield kit items.

From what I know, the European bound Samurais kept on like the SJ410-no rollbar or windshield supports. When I lived in Germany I once met up with a Suzuki Samurai club. They were salivating over the stock Samurai rollbar!
