2010 April - Dodge Ram Member Of The Month
Congratulations to our April Winner


And now a word from your winner.......

How much do I love Z? Let me count the ways.

Hello and for some of you that may not know me, my name is Paris. I am going to do this a little differently than most, so please bear with me. While this isn’t supposed to be about me, it IS supposed to be about ForumZ and why I am here. In an honest attempt at not making my fellow nominees embarrassed, I am going to first tell you why I am here!

Why I won is honestly beyond me when I look at those that were in the running with me. Please don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the support I have encountered here. However, I have nowhere near the Chrysler/Dodge knowledge as Randy, but he never fails to answer my pm’s to my stupid rookie questions. Jared and his audio insight could supply the world with music while I could simply supply the batteries for the radio. Nick lets me call him every name but his own and still holds to a true gentleman’s creed and not fights back by calling me “Hilton”. Hemi just rolls with my “shut up youngin’ comments” and lets me poke and prod him with his small retaliations on my age. These friends and others on the Z are why I stayed and have gained 5 lbs a month, sitting here feeding my Z needs.

There is something that can be said about you all on the ForumZ. When I entered here it was different than other forums and I could sense that right away. You didn’t ban me; you instead rolled with my off-kilter humor, childish, silly antics and never-ending Dodge questions. For that, I appreciate you all so very much. After all there is nothing more I can offer that my fellow members can’t, other than a great “Hello and welcome to the Z, glad to have you”.

Now a bit about myself: I have been married for 17 years to my husband Scott with which we have two wonderful little girls, Caile (Kay-lee) and Emyle. For this moment I will call Scott “the enabler”. He has given me everything I want and could ever dream of. He is currently deployed for the 5th time overseas. He gives so unselfishly to see his three girls happy. He has started and continues to enable my addictions to modding and the love of Dodges. Thank you Scott and I love you.

It started in 98 when “the enabler” saw an 84’ Ram sitting on a used lot and “just had to have it”. I told him it wasn’t a good running truck and we couldn’t afford it. By that afternoon I called him at work and see if he wanted to do lunch and I picked him up in it, his first Father’s Day gift! Little did he know I went to the lot and had it started and my heart melted. A 318 with a deep loping cam and glass packs! It’s been an addiction ever since! We’ve had 5 or 6 Jeeps, Neon, an Avenger, a Breeze, a Challenger and 5 or 6 Rams. We’re slightly obsessed if you want to call it that.

About my truck, “Banshee”: I used to have a 07’ Laramie and loved it until THAT day. We went to the lot for service and I saw her…..this gi-normous truck (hence the name, ICOVERU-I see over you)! I remember “The Enabler” had to pick me up so I could see inside as there were no running bars on her yet. 6 months of haggling and she was ours! Never would I have thought I could love the sound of a diesel as much as I do now. From there the mod bug has sat in and I take so much pride in my truck. So if I feel this way about my Dodge and you all do too about yours, then you know why this is my second addiction! Thanks for having me. See you around the Z!

Thank you all so much! This has lightened my day after an unexpected $350.00 at the dealership this morning and IT WASN'T ON MODS! Again, thank you to everyone. Now it's time for lunch. :smileup:
