    I’ve wanted one of these since I read a test article about the available 4-wheel drives in/about 1972 in an RV magazine. I liked the ones with the vertical style grille slots. But I have enough other toys now.

    I had an American Import Left hand drive model that I bought used in Florida. I don’t like to admit it, being a Willys guy, but it was a very capable off-road vehicle. It had a 360 cc 2 cycle water cooled engine. It had plenty of power off-road (2 speed transfer case, I think), but not very good for highway use, about 45mph max. It was so light, you could easily get it unstuck with a little manpower. We would tip it on its side in the front yard to freak the neighbors out. I would definitely buy another one, but they are fairly rare and have gotten quite expensive for a good one.

    I used to run the logging roads in the East Texas national forests (before they were closed to vehicles) along with some other off-road guys; the only three vehicles that could pretty much go anywhere were my CJ-5, a two-wheel drive VW bug with oversize tires – and a Suzuki LJ10. The trucks couldn’t negotiate the turns and mud holes.
