About NAZ

Basic Information

About NAZ
Biography:
Been building and modifying vehicles for five decades. Started turning wrenches over a half-century ago and learned to weld when I was 12. I'm the kid that never figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up so I kept trying different jobs and going back to school to learn new trades. Iíve had a wide range of careers and experiences. Iíve worked as a Ford mechanic, a nuclear warhead technician in the US Army, a pipe fitter/welder, millwright, machinist, an engineer and an assortment of operations management positions.

Iíve worked in a variety of maintenance fields and have been responsible for wrenching on or managing the maintenance of a wide range of weapons systems and vehicles. My last gig was as a search & rescue pilot and even then I was also the maintenance officer for my squadron. Iíve used these acquired skills over the years to build race cars and hot street cars.

Now retired, Iím spending my time racing a FFR 33 Hot Rod I built. Of course, itís not the typical build -Ė this one is a one-off mostly scratch built chassis. Everything from the firewall back is custom fabrication with no FFR items left.
Location:
"The High Country", beautiful Flagstaff, AZ
Interests:
Cars, motorcycles, horses, competitive shooting, flying, off road vehicles, racing
Occupation:
Allegedly retired but seem to be busier than ever

Signature


33 Hot Rod Super Pro Drag Racer
33 HR NHRA Cert Roll Cage Build
