Just updated this thread with more brochures for those that are interested:
http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/viewtop ... =4&t=34895

I just purchased a pile of Holden Barina brochures which will make it up.. purely to show the relationship between the Swift/Barina at the time. Probably not the most interesting thing for Australians.. but others may find it interesting as it isn't heavily documented anywhere on the net.

Nice bits of history there Cami. Any chance of scanning the insides of the Swift related booklets?

All info is appreciated.. and I understand how long it takes to scan stuff.

Thanks for posting it up :)

:worship: Thanks Cami Man!! AS for the number total brought in to the U.S.,I have a book that only gives for 1992,1993,1994 and they give a TOTAL brought(Imported) in to North America..There isnt any Percentage of Swifts,GT's,Samurai's,Sidekicks,etc. I called Suzuki N/A and at first they seemed ok,then she had a talk with her "Manager" and well,they couldnt help me. I think The Swift GT is Suzuki's "Bastard"child. As for the Brochures,I have the U.S. 1989,1990,1991,1992,1993,1994 of Swifts,a 1990 of Austraila's,a Japan Cultus(~1992) and NUMEROUS magazine photo's,Magazine Ad's(Including 2 Japan ads for the GTi)Articles,etc(One is from Super Street in 1999 and it has a pic of a Red Swift GT with the pass headlight out waiting to go onto the dragstrip).There was a guy who worked at Suzuki North America(Some of you older Members may remember him) that came here and was talking to us. Some of us didnt believe him,and I sent him a Email with my V.I.N. and he was able to tell me the just about the WHOLE STORY about my car,like the vessel who brought her here,etc,(I am the second owner and have all the paperwork,but this was more in-depth) It is pretty neat info. But his info was limited.I Can tell ya there wasnt many Gt's brought over!!!!!!!!

Just read this whole thread and my head is spinning! So many different/similar/confused little cars! I thought my little Frankenstien was tough to classify all by itself. Glad somebody has a handle on the nomenclature. :)
