How I discover LJ...

Post by freestyle » Thu Sep 27, 2007 2:54 pm

Hello, for dose who dosen't know me, I'm french canadian so sory for english fault.I found this site years ago, but after selling my LJ :-(
In 2001, I was looking for a Suzuki Samurai, and was searching on the internet (www.lespac.com). I felt on an ad called suzuki SJ-70, so I looked at the picture and found this nice little Brute 500km away from my house, the man bouth this Lj-80 1982 brand new and restored it 10 years ago the way he thought it was best but Danny L called it bundo buket :))):
but I went and bouth the truck for 1000$ running with the original engine.
after a week, I made search on the internet for SJ-70, and found notthing, But I found Danny L, and he gave me a lot of information about these truck, and felt in love with these little brute.
The funny part of this, I bouth 3 aother LJ-80, and had the chance to run one of them for about 1 week in a total of 4 years! :oops:
That is why I wants to buy one again to restore it and have fun.
I think it was the AGE thing that made me sell my trucks, after years, you get mature and can take care of a budjet to realize a project.
you have to be patient, and not triyng to put all your money on it .
It takes years to built a truck.

regards, Vince.

Good to hear it Vince! But don't park it - restore it now, and bring it to the meet next year!!! :D

This will be a long process, restoration, and legal papers....
Here in canada, they put stickers on LJ-80, and after 20 years, it is impossible to have the serial on it to put it back on the road.
