    From a post I did on another forum. :D

    First, some from Sam's www.samstrucks.com

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLd37JOhiO0&NR=1
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyzKXpnTyDk

    Then a very nice one from the folks at www.4x4minitruckimports.com/
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th9wh6GI6xU

    How about a turbo Suzuki Carry (I believe it's from the Philippines)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiYqIC5x5NA

    A Carry in the snow.

    One from ABC mini trucks.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p3SfGbPrUw

    From www.midsouthminitrucks.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmYMzbskGvs

    A riced-out Carry with full body kit. Hmmm... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhR8BLR6ndw

    And for you rally driver wannabees...here's why you might not want to use your mini truck (or van) on a tarmac rally. From the BBC's Top Gear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcRAPQW4ZW8


    And a couple of a Daihatsu in a Finnish swamp (again, the van version)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrlTG3J5J2E and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMlOXlOWnpU

    Finally, some fun ones of Subaru Sambars in action.
    85mph in a Kei truck! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDToFtbvENM

    And my favorite. A drive in the Japanese countryside showing these trucks in their native environment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ3mwTSd1_A

    Enjoy!

    Cool! Yeah there's quite a bit of Carry stuff on You tube...mostly the van. :) But here's a gem featuring the truck that was just posted a couple of days ago. Nose wheelie in a Kei truck! Still want to tag it and use it as a daily driver? :p

    BTW, if you're old enough you may remember the music in that first vid you link "Fun with a Suzuki Super Carry" as the "theme music" from the old BBC Benny Hill Show that was shown in the states on PBS about 20 years ago!

    Absoultely I do, it would serve my purposes quite well!!!
    I figuure by the time a solid rear "bumper" and hitch are mounted, it will be put to use daily!
    looks like the brake pressure porportioning valvle needs to be adjusted or upgraded.

    I took a test drive in a carry, it felt more natural than the vw rabbit pickup I use as the DD

    Yeah, I just had to say that..:D I have to admit that I wouldn't mind having one tagged myself!

    I'm also a current VW driver...had a diesel Rabbit, then a MkII Golf, now a MkIII Golf. (and Subie Legacy as the family truckster) ;)

    Nope, they WILL lift in back if you stomp on the brakes. This goes with the territory of having almost all of the vehicles weight on the front axle.

    Still, I tagged mine anyway. :D Like any vehicle, you must respect it's limits.

    The Sambar and Acty are probably the safest models in a panic braking situation. :)

  14. By Far the best video is on youtube.com and you put in the search box mini truck nose wheelie. It's awesome and I need to try this to see if it really works. Hope you all enjoy!

    mini hauler

    I am a dealer for these trucks. I have this particular truck sitting on my main lot right now. All left hand drive, fully refurbished trucks. Suzuki based with air, lift kit, custom paint, stereo, upholstry and extended cab, box van, fire truck, roach coach, etc. all by order. The first 7 just got released and I have 3 of them. The only problem with them is that I now have the same problem I had when I first got into the business. Wrong door!:rolleyes:

    Mini Truck set up for Ice Fishing

    Hi Everyone,

    I just posted a video of a mini truck we set up for Ice Fishing on YouTube. The Ice Fishing Shelter can be easily removed from the truck when not needed. This truck is headed to New York where my brother lives and where ice fishing is popular.

    Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1vJ2-IOBDM
