Suzuki Saturday: Extreme Suzuki Jimnys

If you read Subcompact Culture on a semi-regular basis, you're probably familiar with the Suzuki Jimny—that pint-sized, off-road-capable SUV that replaced the Suzuki Samurai in many parts of the world.

In the video above, you can see what I believe is an off-road trials event in Greece. This extensively modified Jimny is obviously extremely capable. Just look at that suspension articulation! The little Jimny is a big deal in many off-road circles in both Europe and Asia, and it's no wonder why!

In this video from Japan, you can see how capable the Jimny can be at rock crawling when properly modified. It does look like this one is sporting some old-school Toyota pickup wheels, though!
