June 2010 ZOOM - A-Town zuk (Jasper Patterson)
Congratulations A-Town zuk (Jasper Patterson) for winning the June 2010 Zuwharrie Owner of the Month! !

How does it feel being honored along with the past winners?
It’s an honor to be included with such a great bunch of enthusiasts.

So tell us about you.  Who are you, where do you live, and what do you do for a living?
My name is Jasper, I live in Andrews, NC, and currently I’m very happily unemployed!

Tell us a bit about your family.
My lovely wife Jessica, and my 5yr. old son Brayden keep me sane in an insane world.

How did you get started in Suzuki’s? And/or how did you come across your current zuk?
I have loved wheelin’ ever since I was a child and rode in a brand new Sami in 86’(I was 12) Although it would be many years and various rigs later, I always knew I would have a Sami one day

How long did it take you to build your Zuk to what it is today?
Well, I have 4 Sami’s now in various states of operation, but the one I started with(my main trail rig) I bought bone stock in 07’. At this moment it’s sitting up on blocks waiting for it’s next set of axles; Yota? Waggy? Full width? Don’t know yet, I’m waiting for a good deal!

Any changes in store for your rig? And where would you like to see your zuk in 5 years?
For now the axle swap w/coils &links, an exo, and some bomb-proof motor mounts (cause the 318 mount just don’t cut it). 5yrs…who knows.. 650hp Cummins? Haha

If you could have anybody else’s Zuk, who’s would it be and why?
Hideous4x4’s yellow tintop…cause it’s just plain nasty yet still very streetable.

What has been your best wheeling adventure?
That would have to be the spring 08’ Zu. We took 16 days and camped and wheeled our way down the outer banks and then spent 3 days at the Zu event on the way home. Met some great folks and had the time of our lives.

If you could go to any place in the world to wheel, where would that be?
Although I have been through Moab several times, I have never been able to leave the pavement….I would love to wheel Moab!

Who are you closest to in the Zuwharrie community?
That would have to be my buddy Josh(Palmers87sami)

What other toys/hobbies do you put a lot of time into?
We love to go camping/fishing, hiking, & of course wheelin & wrenchin

What is it about the BBS that brings you back for more?
A great group of folks more interested in helping one another than talkin’ trash.

What about the Zuwharrie Event would you like to see changed?
I have only been to one so far (soon to be two!) and I do have a complaint; In addition to all of the incredible, hard work you guys do to put on this great event, why can’t you do a little rain dance or something to keep the dust down and make the trails more difficult? Doesn’t seem like to much to ask, but hey, Maybe next time.

Got a funny or interesting wheeling story related to your zuk?
Oh, yes…. But I’ll save those for the campfire!

Thanks you guys!  It is truly an honor to be part of the Zuwharrie family.   I just noticed however that my lovely wife Jessica did not make it into the photos (cause she is usually doing such a great job behind the camera).   Here she is showing off the Sami the day we brought it home.
