    From a post I did on another forum. :D

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


    Then a very nice one from the folks at www.4x4minitruckimports.com/

    How about a turbo Suzuki Carry (I believe it's from the Philippines)

    A Carry in the snow.

    One from ABC mini trucks.

    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

    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

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=2hzzICONULs :D

    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

  21. Why didn't you just put one of these to put on it. If you buy the Blackline Plow with the Auger they can drill their holes from inside the cab. Pull straight forward and flip down the shanty and start fishing. This is how I am going to rig mine for Northern Indiana.

    I have a friend who comes from Sapporo.
    He told me lots of people go ice fishing up in Hokkaido.
    You should try and market these to the Japanese, as they have alot of kei trucks and may be interested.
    Good invention anyway.:)

    I found that a couple of carpentry clamps and a drilled piece of angle steel works well for a camera mount:


    I just finished putting together a 3+ minute video of my Sambar in deep snow (12") - I'll have to upload it later, when I can get on broadband at a friend's place.

    YeeeHaww!!! I love it!! At one point I was thinking..."yeah...this is cool but what would REALLY be impressive would be if he drove up there in that untracked area by those trees...." and then you did!
