Greetings Me Droogs and Droogettes!
Got me a new project to sink what little cash I have into.
DadInLaws (now mine) 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara
Two Words any dood in my position loves to hear:
And yes, it-does– qualify as a truck. V6 2.6 liter 4WD thankee very mucho.
Free? Fuck ya man!
AND the best part: 72,500 original miles
Mechanic said he’s never see such a mechanically pristine putt-putt. Seals good, engine just broken in. Everything works. To include the 80’s cassette deck in the dash
I ordered ZZ Top’s ‘Afterburner’ and ‘Eliminator’ tapes on EBay…$5… too funny
Gonna have some retro-cruising to do now
The only issue is the paint is dead, dead, dead.
Debating on leaving it that way as it’s white, faded and like I said dead. I took it thru the car wash and did a mad pre-soak with mildew remover as it had a big pile of green/black mold and mildew all over it.
Very common for cars that sit around a lot here in Flor-rheee-Duh. Very White-trashy looking too. It was DIL’s grocery getter and secondary car from the one he crashed, and since he’s no longer driving, he kindly gave it to me as a second car here. The 4WD differential is good, and I need to get a tank of ethanol-free gas run thru it with an engine treatment as it -is- sluggish from sitting ’round the driveway since 2008, with only short jaunts in it occasionally.
I’m also gonna scrimp me some pennies for a small trailer, roof rack, new sneakers and some ‘other’ equipment to make it a very low-key bugout boogie buggy.
So fun fun! I’m all sorts of happy happy joy joy.
Please if’n ya can, hit the tip jar on the way through, as it’s gonna take some shekels to set this up, and the bullet bean and boot fund is low, although some ‘yall have donated recently, and Wifey said thanks very much.
More later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
