1997 Suzuki Sierra SJ80

Young growing up my dad owned a little LJ80 Stockman, green in colour and I always thought it was an amazing car. Fast forward years later and as I was getting my Learners I began looking for my first car and came across a gorgeous white coily tin top. Unfortunately it was out of my price range so wasn’t to be. Again several years later my brother purchased a camouflage painted soft top sierra and again thought it was an awesome little unit. Through him I was introduced to the Illawarra Suzuki 4WD club and some of its members including one Jon Spink. Jon had a friend who had a Soft Top Coily Sierra in his shed that after much persuasions I was able to purchase and load it up on a car trailer and it finally became mine. A fantastic standard well looked after Zook. So began the adventures and modifications to bring it to where it is today. Zook has taken me on some fantastic adventures and met some great people and friends along the way.
