This blue beauty is a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard S40. This model was marketed as the Suzuki Savage from 1986-2004, and there are no major cosmetic differences between the models.

The single-cylinder, four-stroke “thumper” engine is one of the largest displacement single cylinder engines in production today. The bike clocks in at a dainty 352 pounds dry, about 50 pounds below the average weight for a motorcycle.

Although this bike is over 10 years old, the donation rolled in with under 15,000 miles! This cleanly designed, easy-riding bike has a long future ahead of it! The former owner knew they could trust Car Donation Wizard to help them donate this bike to their favorite charity.

1961 Jaguar Mark IX Donated to American Cancer Society

Just recently we had a beautiful 1961 Jaguar Mark IX donate to American Cancer Society.  This classic Jaguar came to us from a generous donor in Laguna Beach, California.  You can see from the picture that this car lived a privileged life in sunny southern California.  With just over 27,000 miles, this car was kept in great running shape and was even treated to a new engine back in the early 1990’s.  Due to the donor taking great care of this car it has held its value over the last 56 years.  We expect it to earn quite a nice car donation for the American Cancer Society.

1977 MG MGB Donated to Michigan Public Radio

This is not the first MG we have received as a donation but it is one of the better models we have seen.  It is the fourth MG donated so far this year and also the oldest aside of a 1952 though that was a kit car and not an original.  This green roadster only has 3,505 miles which is incredible for a 1977.  We do not know much about this MG’s previous life but the donor is from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Presumably, the car spent most of it’s time there cruising with the top down catching the breeze off Lake Michigan.

The ’77 MG has been donated to Michigan Radio, a part of the NPR news network.  Unfortunately, University of Michigan basketball suffered a tough loss last night in the NCAA tournament.  Hopefully seeing a donation like this one will help ease the pain.

1952 MG TD Donated to PETA

Recently there was a 1952 MG TD donated to PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.  The unique thing about this classic car is that it is actually a fully restored MG kit car.  So while the car looks just like the model that was originally manufactured in 1949, it has actually been updated with modern amenities.  What’s better than that?  You can ride in this smooth driving throwback in comfortable leather seats surrounded by a fiberglass rebuild.

Today awareness is being raised around social media and news sites about the prevalence that human trafficking has around the world.  January was proclaimed National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month by President Barack Obama in 2014.  According to UNICEF USA an estimated 21 million people are victim to human trafficking and forced labor.  This includes about 5.5 million children.

In 2016 hundreds of people decided to donate a car to charity and picked UNICEF as the charity they wanted to support.  One of the top car donations in the year came out of Colorado.  A 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee with over 125,000 hard earned miles was donated and raised a lot of money for the charity.

The brand Jeep, originally produced for the military in 1941, when they decided they needed a new lightweight, cross-country reconnaissance vehicle.  By the end of the second World War over 600,000 Jeeps were ordered for use.  Flash forward to 1974 and Jeep Motors debuted what would become the most popular model in history, the Cherokee.  In 1992, Jeep presented a brand new model, the Grand Cherokee.  This model quickly gained popularity among car enthusiasts.¹
