Is One Sami Enough?

OK, how come one Sami isn't enough? I'm getting to the point where I'm happy with my Sami buildup and I'm already beginning the process of getting another one! OK, my next one will be a hard top, but still, how come one isn't enough? It seems that ALL my friends who have Samis have at least one lying around for parts and another one in the wings waiting for a buildup. I'm just as guilty as them, I was just wondering why this is the case. I don't see Jepp guys with 8 Jeeps stuffed into their back yard...

I thought it was maybe the "Kitten factor." "They're just so cute I have to have more than one!"

Re: Is One Sami Enough?

i thought that one was enough but soon found that i had 5 at one time. i have gone through about ten of them. and now i am back to the first one. i really don't wheel it much anymore, but i don't have the heart to sell it. i have taken it to colorado and utah twice and many other trips. i feel i have got my money out of it two fold so it would just kill me to sell it. i do most of my wheeling in a land cruiser now. but that is because i have a wife and three kids and we just out grew the zook. i enjoy the zook more on the trail, i get a better rush wheeling the short wb. i have 4 land cruiser now, so its just swaping one addiction for another. i have found that almost everything i have learned will work on the land cruiser. it is just doesn't give me the thrill of being on the edge that the zook does. now the next one will be full tube chassie, big block,turbo 400,np205, rockwells and a set of 44s. but that is after i get the shop built. mike

Re: Is One Sami Enough?

I've watched the buildup of your Cruiser and I have to tell ya' that I WANT ONE! I can understand the "outgrowing" a Samurai comment. I have a wife, 3 kids and a 4th on the way. The Samurai is "MY" car and then we have a family car.

Capn'...The main reason you don't see Jeep guys stuffing their yards full is because they're so expensive. How many Jeeps have you seen for $200 that run??? One Samurai is certainly not enough for me!

""How many Jeeps have you seen for $200 that run??? ""

EXACTLY!!! Because they are so cheap to buy. Why buy parts when you break when you can buy the whole truck instead? And they're so easy to pull apart - kinda like lego.

Re: Is One Sami Enough?

They are like a good pocket knife. Just convenient to have around and affordable. I'm on my fourth now, and still I keep my eyes open for another... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Is One Sami Enough?

You know, I never really thought about it - We started with a '91 Sidekick, then bought a '92, when I flew my rocket car off a cliff, traded them in on a pair of 95's, and then traded my wife's 95 in on a 99 Grand Vitara. And I find myself on Autotrader.com about once a week, looking for another '95! Now, I wonder if I ought to pick up a few Sami's, just because! Oh, this could get addicting. I wonder if I an fit that 2.5L V6 in a Sami???
