Still looking for a Zuk. Help!

It's been too long and I still haven't found a samurai that I can purchase yet.

If any of you know of a decent sami--running or not within a couple hours of Knoxville, TN please let me know.

I even have a post here in the wanted section where I'll trade my Jeep Grand Cherokee for one. I have posted on the Knoxville Craigslist looking for parts or rigs and the only offer I had was some guy wanting $3500 for one. I paid less than that for the Jeep and sure ain't gonna drop that into a vehicle I'm gonna tear apart.

BillyBob--if you see this, maybe you got a rig or two to get rid of??

Thanx--I'd like to have a ride by summer.

Brad.

Thanx, Mule Zuk.

I honestly thought moving up here to the mountains that there would be a great supply. I've only seen prolly 3-4 samurais since I moved here. If I had a trailer, I'd just go back home and pick one up. You could buy them all day long for less than a grand and every time you rounded the curve you'd see one sitting.

I'd even go for a pre-'96 track/kick. Prefer 4-door.

Thanx,
Brad.

I checked out that $1300 kick you posted a link to. It needed a lot of work and the guy refused the $1000 I offered.

I also called a guy in Oneida that has a samurai shop. He has about 20 for sale. Might be where those pics. came from, looked like quite a few in the background. He likes his an awful lot, some priced up around $15K. Cheapest one about $4K.

I'm looking to spend around a grand. I already have axles and a pretty good idea of where I'm gonna start. Just need a ride to start on. I'm itching to work on a zuk--I really miss it. Hell, if you need any help turning wrenches on yours gimme a yell. I'll dive right in.

Thanx for the links,
Brad.
