I did not like how closed in the back seat was
And the more I looked at the cage the more hidden damage from the rolling so I got out the saw Image

Been a long time! That red 64 is still sitting in my back yard where Scott left it. Actually a different back yard as we acquired a different home. But he's never done anything with it. LOL

So how current are these last pictures above? A few years ago? Or this week?
