July 2013 ZOOM- Robert Morris-Buckhornbob
Congratulations for winning the July 2013 Zuwharrie Owner of the Month!

How does it feel being honored along with the past winners?

I am not worthy of this HONOR…

So tell us about you.  Who are you, where do you live, and what do you do for a living?
Robert Morris
Buckhorn Crossroads NC, in between Greensboro and Raleigh NC.
Work for South Atlantic Galvanizing, Graham plant


Tell us a bit about your family.
Married Linda 12/22/1979, we have two daughters, Beverly(5/3/81) and Susie(8/10/83)
Married Deborah (aka MawMaw)5/20/93,She came with Nora ,Chris, and Krystle.

How did you get started in Suzuki’s?
When Beverly was in high school (1996), I got a call for the ex saying Bev needed a car to get back and forth to school. So I sent her the money and they bought a sammi. She drove it thru her time in school, after high school she decided to get married. Her mom took it back and gave to Susie to drive to school. She drove thru 2003.Then Linda drove till it broke down in 2004.She called me in 2008 and ask if I would get this piece of CRAP out of her yard. I went and had to drag it on the trailer with one rear wheel locked up. I had plans to take home and scrap. Drug it home, and haven’t scraped it YET.

How long did it take you to build your Zuk to what it is today?
I picked it up in 2008, the FUN never ends.


Why a Suzuki and not another 4x4?

It was cheap to start with, now just FUN.

If you could have anybody else’s Zuk, who’s would it be and why?

Dptyrob’s rig from 2008.  It was in my trail group my first Zu, I was impressed and in AWE.

What has been your best wheeling adventure?
The last Zu, MawMaw brought Lexi down to wheel with us, it was GREAT to see her enjoying something I enjoy. I hope it was the first wheeling trip of many for her.

Who are you closest to in the Zuwharrie community?
That would have to be jeshar(Jeffery Brooks)

What other toys/hobbies do you put a lot of time into?
Raising 4 grandkids from 3 to 7 yrs old, is about the only thing I have time for after work. (Ricky, Hunter Braxton Brat, Hannah, Lexi)

What is it about the Zuwharrie.com BBS that brings you back for more?
Feels comfortable.

What about the Zuwharrie Event would you like to see changed?
I don’t know of anything that I would change.

Congrats Robert!   Couldn't happen to a better guy. 

Great writeup Jim. 
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.
