Just food for thought......
AS we approach Thanksgiving, I want to share several thoughts with the Zook family......
In 1990, when I bought my 91 Sami, I found that I was really alone regarding any type of support or part availabilty (nearly dealer only....$$$$$). All parts had to be ordered and no one really knew a thing about them other than the CR nonsense.
Finally after getting a pc and lots of searching, I found several vendors that were specific to Zooks. From there, I eventually found the BBS's and mailing lists that were Zook specific.
Because of contacts made through the web, I purchased another Sami, an 87 with a 1.6. I quickly found that it needed major work and had to redo much of what the previous owner had done. It was a great learning experience and I relied on the help and experiences from here and other list/BBS's.
This my friends, is what I am so very thankful for. Not only was there a limitless resource for tech help, parts and advice, there was also a family atmosphere where if there was one in need, many offered to help in one way or another. This, my Zook family, is very good medicine!
I suppose what I'm trying to say is...."Thank You". I value all the help and advice given. I have been deeply touched by the generosity of many. I hope I can somehow return the good medicine to all.....
It is very much like being lost in the woods (one is never truly lost unless they have a place to be and a time to be there). When finally found, the presence of others is no longer taken for granted....it becomes a precious gift.
So...as we approach Thanksgiving, maybe it would be a good time to reflect on how blessed and lucky we all are to have these resources and the Zook family in our lives.....
Thank you one and all.....
All Good Medicine,
Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......
