Blast From the Past

Found this ad in an old 4-wheel drive mag. Not sure if they are still around. Jim

Re: Blast From the Past

I remember them! Their black Sami (The one pictured) used to make me DROOL! All those bolt ons and the flashy paintjob were the epitome of late 80's garb! I wonder if they're still around?!? I haven't seen them in the mags so I doubt it.

Thanks for the memories!

Re: Blast From the Past

They stopped selling Samurai stuff around 1990. I got their stuff on clearance around that time-the front bumper with brush guard and the rear bumper. The rear bumper was the worst designed piece of crap I ever put on my Samurai. For example, the whole bumper had to be taken off to change out the light bulbs. The front was a little bit better but with its thin metal and chrome plating it was pretty weak.

Re: Blast From the Past

Yep, they're still here, but they mainly make Jeep stuff. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

I had one of their Jeep bumpers on my Scrambler. Good, heavy-duty stuff!. I sent them an email to see if any Suzuki items are still available or if they even still offer them. I'll post if I get a good response...

Re: Blast From the Past

They're still around. I emailed them to see what's up. They now only carry Jeep stuff.
