1987 Suzuki Samurai
Driver: Tim Hardy
Tim Hardy is a rare breed of die-hard four-wheeler and a permanent fixture on Ultimate Adventure. He is a MacGyver kind of guy who can fix virtually anything with limited tools and resources. Handy and mechanically inclined, he's the perfect man to have on the trail! This year Tim drove his Suzuki almost 3,000 miles to join us, experiencing catastrophic engine failure along the way, but with his quick thinking and ingenuity he was able to join us two days later and finish UA with the rest of the crew.
