Default Snapper to Jeepster

A dear friend of mine gave me this Snapper Grounds Cruiser several years ago. It was made for 1 year but the design had to be slightly altered to keep from trademark infringement with Jeep. I hope you can see why.

For a few years we have wanted to paint it to look like a Jeep. I loan this to David "Bowwiz" Lynch every year for a carts, bikers, and babes rally. This year I brought it by a week early and provided some paint for him.

Look what he did. In addition to the paint he put a new front bumper on it and added the stickers, which were a nice touch. The bumper has a winch plate for the future accessory.

Beautiful job, Bowwiz has some great skills.

Is he still living off the grid?

He lives in Bryan and pretty much does professional photography now for heavy metal, biker rallies, and roller derby girls. MD is starting to take its toll on him. He's still the most unusual friend I have and I know he likes it like that. He's definitely not your average rock and roll cowboy.

Thanks Tracey, he's been one of my favorites on TBH since I joined! Wish he was still posting.

He sure did a great job! He's not doing the locksmith thing with Constance anymore? I sort of lost track of that, it was going on when I joined.

He's one of a kind for sure. In a good way.

I'm not sure what happened there but he hasn't been there in a long time. I think that was his last regular job. He has to watch his earnings bc the government says he can't earn too much.

I'm glad to see lots of people here still miss him. I'll see if he'll stop by and say hi.

Constance turned out to be a very Evil woman. She's in prison for the rest of her life .

Her father who was teaching me to open Safes passed away from the stress.


like Tracey said.
Muscular Dystrophy has a choke hold on me. Along with losing my abilities to walk. I'm also having issues swallowing food at times. Over the last 4 years, I've had almost 14% muscle loss from this wasting disease.
I'm now dependant on my wheelchair. Walking and standing is for a short period of time,even with the carbon fiber braces from my knees down.

My life is slowly dissolving away .But....
I'm still going

Wow...sorry to bring up old bad news lol. I just remember you were doing that around the time I joined, thought it was cool to be able to open a safe.

Glad to see you post, I wish you well buddy.

Bowwiz still has his fans here!

I can't wait for September - he's borrowing the Jeepster again and he'll have time to put in round headlights! I can always count on him to bring coolness to my life.
