    So we're all brought together here by our love for these unique cars, but outside that we all come from so many different areas, backgrounds, lifestyles etc...so I thought it would be cool if we could see where we all bust our asses making a living!

    Just like these cars, our job is a big part of who we are, so say it proudly, I think it will be interesting. Might even help us network a little.

    I am a bodyguard at an estate in Beverly Hills, CA, and I moonlight as a bouncer at clubs and events in Hollywood on my days off. (Trust me it sounds a lot more interesting than it is :))

    Yep that sounds real cool. I'm just a maintenance guy at Turbocare (we rebuild natural gas and steam fired turbine rotors).
    I came from 16 years in the overhead crane buisness, welding, cutting, rigging, electrical and such.
    Prior to that USAR-as 31-V,C,E,B but that was in another, much more exciting, life.

Property is devided into home sites, horse trails, hiking trails, 4 wheeler trails, equestrian facilities, club house and a whole lot more. Thats why I don't have time for my GN:mad:.

    I couldnt trust myself to do that. I just went to the dentist and discovered I am grinding my teeth to dust when I sleep. Lots of damage and they are going to rebuild my teeth to like new starting next week. I cant imagine spending that much time in someones mouth fixing all the little things like that.

    Full time student, using my brains to earn a 4.0 GPA and excel in classes way above my level.. Some may call me genius. But I am not. Took the test, and just barely missed. So who knows where I'll end up? I enjoy mainly the sciences so maybe a career as a doctor, physicist, etc. etc.

    It's not so bad working on models at the bench. I'm not "in the trenches". It is pretty detailed work. I use a 20x microscope and we work down to 1/10ths of a mm clearences. A steady hand is a must.:wink:
