FireZapper's Purple Haze

Hey all, Firezapper here.
I'm retired from the Air Force after 20 years. Now I work for a company that assembles the chassis for mack trucks. I assemble the rear boogies.

I live in south central Pa. When I retired I was separated from my wife of 16 years. I'm now divorced and bought a home with my pop. My childhood home was in bad shape so we talked and got a better place. I have 2 girls (13 and 16) living with mom.
Me and my youngest

Dayum. That's a hell of a cage. I guess you don't plan on hauling very much stuff/people?

It's a wheeler. Spare parts in the back... The rear set is accessable but I'm going to a single racing seat in the rear.

Oh and Brian :confused:
