I rode in one from Munich to Fussen in 1988. We were weaving in and out of traffic on the Autobahn at about 100 MPH. The reports that the Suzuki Samurai would roll over parallel parking had just come out. We were riding in a big Samurai, at 100, weaving in and out of traffic. We (the other American exchange student and I) thought we were going to die.
It got stranger when we heard what sounded like two pie tins full of ball bearings rolling down a hill. The sound was a VW Squareback that passed us like we were standing still.
