For Sale: The Teal Terror
Well, the time has come. It's time to sell the Teal Terror. It's been an awesome little vehicle for us and for this website, but it's time to move on.
We are selling our 1995 Suzuki Sidekick, aka, "The Teal Terror." We purchased this vehicle in 2010 with 139,000 miles on it and have put lots of work into it to make it a fun, capable 4x4. The truck is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission and the 1.6-liter 16-valve engine. It drives well, gets decent fuel economy, is quite capable off the pavement—and fits where other vehicles won't! There is normal wear and tear for a 21 year old vehicle, a few scrapes and scratches here and there. However, this is a Sidekick that has been built right, well maintained, and well loved. Clean title in hand.
The Teal Terror has been featured in issue 14 of OutdoorX4 magazine, and has been featured on ExpeditionPortal.com, AutoBlog.com, Zukiworld.com, and has been the project here, of course.
