Auto-themed Japanese television shows just love the TIME ATTACK!!!! (always in caps), which compares a raft of vehicles over the same track. It's a term I love for its implied violence, even if the violence in this case is a bunch of Suzuki Jimny off-roaders bouncing around the snow like little Macaques strung out on angel dust.

Oh the Jimny, how I miss thee. Called the Samurai here, the potent little SUV was a great value and a car I'd love to have new now were it not for Consumer Reports harshing our buzz by pointing out they were possibly death traps.

I mentioned how much I'd love to have a Samurai to a visiting Suzuki engineer. He just shuddered. Oh well, enjoy what we're missing above. Skip ahead two minutes to get to the hoonage.
