Roadside Outtakes: “Roller Girl” – Suzuki Samurai Soldiers On


We spotted this sharp Samurai while driving through Yellowstone park. I’d already parked close to it at three different sites in the park when I finally caught up with the owners…


The young couple we spoke with are from California, and they’ve owned the Suzuki for a while. I pointed out that these have virtually disappeared from the Midwest and South (where, years ago, I owned one), either having succumbed to rust or death by four-wheeling. They told me that in their area, nice ones are “a dime a dozen.”

This nice example is named “Roller Girl”…kind of like a roller board.
