McDonough, Georgia, Part 2 – 1989 Suzuki Swift GTi

May 21, 2016

The Suzuki Cultus came in a number of humdrum variations that did a couple of things well – be cheap, and save gas. Somehow, their absolute bottom-end-ness makes them not quite as boring as a slightly larger bland-box – perhaps it’s because you really need to work to keep things on the move. But if you’re a fan of obscure versions of common appliances, you’ll know we’re not looking for one of those – it has to be either a Chevrolet Sprint Turbo or this 1989 Suzuki Swift GTi, for sale for $2100 in McDonough, GA.

Lancia Mechanic’s Special – 1991 Suzuki Swift GTi

November 21, 2013

Who doesn’t like themselves a small, nimble, lightweight car that can untangle the twisties? By the early 1990s, such a car was becoming fairly rare. Sure, you could buy fun compacts all day, like the GTI, Civic Si, Mirage Turbo and Corolla FX16. But the subcompact class was pretty sparse, with the depressing Ford Aspire (tagline: “I aspire to no longer drive this car”), Geo Metro, and Kia Spectra as your main options… with one glowing exception: this Suzuki Swift GTi. You can find this little rocket, which is sure to be 2041’s Mini Cooper S in terms of collectibility, for sale with bidding at $2000 and only one day left to go in Oakland, CA.
