Fate or sheer luck?? (AKA one luck SOB!)
Well, I've got a good buddy that lives in the town that I grew up in which is about 4 hours north of me. He's wanted a Zook for awile & been e-mailing me about Zooks A LOT in the past month or two. He's had me trying to find him a Zook to build up but he is on a limited budget since he is layed off from work right now. So I've been looking a Zooks with no motor, etc. for around $500 or less. So I get a New England (mostly Maine) swap & sell guide Thursday morning at work. I quickly flip to "S" in the truck section (like I ALWAYS do) to find this ad
"Suzuki Samurai project, 1.6L engine already in, body work done, truck just needs to be finished $1000. OBO"
So I decide that as soon as I get home I'll call him. When I get home my wife has the phone & he's on it!
He bought. He said the body is MINT, new paint job, 1.6L tracker motor WITH install kit & wiring harness already IN Zook, a TRUCKLOAD of spare parts,...............$400.
WTF & I though I got some good deals!! That's unreal! I've literally had dreams that this same thing happened to ME!
I'm happy for him! May see him at New England 4x4 events next year!
