Zook-freaks are a rarity...
We, that is to say "Zookinuts", are a rarity. You get to see jeeps everywhere. I live (in Dallas, TX) 5 miles from work, and during that short commute, I see no less than 10 jeeps. Probably one in ten is worthy of respect, with decent tires and the like. I NEVER see another zook. Since I bought my '87 sami around 6 months ago, I have seen a whopping total of 5 others. Of those 5, mine and one other are true trail-worthy rigs. If you do the math on what I just said, that means I've seen around 1200 jeeps, 120 of which are somewhat radical. Compare that to the TWO radical zooks I know of. Now, I hit the trails, and the jeeps are everywhere. And most of 'em (not all of them, mind you, but most) look down at the zook, despite the fact that I can out-climb and out-mud most of them. Where am I going with all this grumbling? I want some backup! I wish there were more freaks like me around to talk shop with and hit the trail with. I have ONE zook-buddy here. ONE! We work on stuff and design together on a regular basis, but we would love to have an actual club of zook-freaks to bum and ride with. This BBS rocks, it's great for research, fab-ideas, and just yappin'. But there is somethin' to be said for physical pals to hit the trails with!
ZOOKINUTS, UNITE!!! (in Dallas, TX) ;^)
