Who needs a Metro in the Pacific Northwest?

'98 low miles Swift 5-speed, no rust

The low-kilometers Suzukiclones have really started coming out of the woodwork in the last year.



My guess: the old people who owned them are dying off and they're being sold off by their kids!

This one:

Another low miles 3-cyl Swift - Montreal

My theory about the old people selling off their barely-used Suzukiclones holds up in the description of this one.

Sadly, autotragic again. Would need a 5-speed swap...



1995 Suzuki Swift 1.0L

45000 km = 28k miles

$950

Quote:
La derniere suzuki swift au quebec ! Condition A1 ! Seulement 45 000km. C’est l’auto d’un tres vieil ami. Auto de collection tres rare ! Vous n’en verai jamais plus des commes celle la. Impressionner vos amis avec ce 3cyl de 1litre
https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...dId=1313791679

Rough translation: Last A1 Swift in Quebec! Only 45k km. Belongs to a friend who's very old. Rare collector's car! You'll never see another like this one. Impress your friends with the 1.0L 3 cylinder.

Impress your friends by not posing to block the view of the passenger door and rocker panel.

I thought the same thing. Way to hide the rust!
