Found an 88 samurai, gonna take a better look at it Friday but I looked at it tuesday night, top is shot, rust at all four corners and around rear wheel wells, rockers...not so bad. It's an L7?? I think, says "Alberta Special" on the back. It's been used as a hunting rig, towed mostly, springs are bagged. Been sitting for a couple years, BC plates. I will post some pics tomorrow, just kinda wondering what these are worth. The guy says it runs good but he bullshitted me about the rust on the phone. It's a soft top, 5 spd, cracked windshield. I been looking for a samurai to replace my kick and it looks like a good project. Dude wants 2 grand, maybe can get him down to 1500. Couldn't see any rust underneath it. What ya think, samurai gooder than kick? Gotta drive on the highway in the summer too.

I dunno, gonna try to lowball him but he seems to think it's worth about 2500. Here's some pics.

okay thanks, I am going to look at it when he is there tomorrow morning, see how it runs and if everything works. If it runs alright and no major rust where you said to look, ya think it's worth 1800?...thats what he said would be about his lowest price.

The springs are sagged a bit is that normal?

I went and looked at it again, he ran it for me, it sounded not too bad but lots of leaks. Speedo cable cut, E brake line cut? I looked inside and lots of rust, the body is pretty bad so I offered him 1200 anyway but he figures it's worth about 2500 and he will probably get it. *L* Loads of people looking for these for hunting rigs. He said he got a lot of calls and I asked if anyone showed up with cash but he said he would keep it before selling it cheap, I dunno, he said he isn't going to drive it as he doesn't trust it. I still got my Sidekick to beat around, it's amazing the abuse they take. I'll wait for a better one, thanks for the help. [h]

if he says that he dont trust then its not worth the 2500.....what a dumb fuck. i hate how people figure that they can get between 3-5000 for a samurai that doesn have much done to it. the rear quarter rust is normal but its stock, needs gaskets needs speedo and e brake cables and he doesnt trust it. anyother vehicle would sell for 500 in that kind of shape. tell him if he doesnt trust it then why does he think he can get so much for it. i hate people

I know, the guy had his mind made up what can ya do? Was kinda funny in a way, him telling me how great it is, how much it's worth then that he don't trust it to use it....fawked up for sure. Glad he didn't take the offer actually, I don't think it was worth much at all. Got a bad feeling about it kinda thing.
