Hello all,

It's been quite some time since I've posted on any of the 928 community forums. I have not abandoned the 928, in fact, there are some things in the works to where I will be back in a 928 in the very near future. Lots has changed in my life over the last couple years, been faced with many challenges in my personal life but, like the saying goes, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger has never been more true in my case. Today, I am happy, healthy and in a great place in my life. But, that's not the point of this post.....

Some of you may be aware, since 2002, I built and ran the 928 Registry website. I was very passionate about the endeavor and spent a great deal of time and money building it given my very limited website skills a pretty good resource for the 928 community. However, in the past few years my enthusiasm and time I dedicated to the site began to wain. It bothered me for quite a while about what to do with the site and in the end, I decided it was best to donate it to the 928 OC in hopes that it would carry on and remain a resource for the 928 enthusiast community. So over the last year or so, that's what I've done. Marc White has been instrumental in making it happen. Derrick Bass has been invaluable in moving over the data and pictures to the new site. Others, along with the OC board members who have played an important and valuable role in this process have been Bill Van Vlack and my long-time friend James Morrison. Thanks also to Jarrod Wise for taking on the task of day to day management of the site.

I am happy and grateful beyond words that my baby will carry on long into the future.

What I didn't expect was a package I received a few weeks ago. In the mail showed up a package with a very nice glass memento and a heartfelt thank you letter from the OC Board. Guys, I have to tell you, I was truly touched. Thank you so very much!

Merry Christmas everyone!





Best always, Chuck Z

These mementos are really awesome! I wanted to chime in to say thanks for entrusting us with the Registry. It has been a long, yet worthwhile project. As Bill said, we have had a huge increase in activity in the last few months. We get all kinds of fan mail saying how helpful the site has been; and that is all thanks to all of the work you put into aggregating information to create one of the best 928 resources on the Internet.

Let's see some pictures of your new 928! We're glad to hear all is going well for you.
