Don't really know, it is garage kept all the time, except for shows, and I don't think he does much of that any more. But... he has a large 4 car garage with the 2 Tr's, and then parts bins, compressor, sandblaster, and lots of other stuff in the rest of a finished basement. A Linkenfelter (??) Corvette has all his attention right now

the basic crate is ok, make them spark and they are very nice cars. i've seen tr's go through10-12 owners until one finally says enough, rips out the electrics and then has a nice sporty little car.

Where to start... nothing as exciting as most of you guys, but 10 years running a service station (gas station to you USians) - eveyone should try that, it gives you a whole new perspective on the human race. :-) Done construction - scaffolding and crane; plant operator; wharfie; truck parts interpreter (BOOOORING! and the boss was an a-hole) and lots of other bits and pieces. Currently an Effet Operator in a sugar mill. Sweet work if you can get it!

Service stations are a dying breed here in the US unless one happens to be in New Jersey. Even the Big Oil company stations are for the most part convenience stores that sell gas on the side, and you get to pump it yourself.

At night I work for Southwest Airlines and during the day I work at the toughest, most demanding job I've ever had...caring for my 2 yr old son and 6 mo old daughter. My day job is the most rewarding and has the best benefits.

I write software self-employed; mostly financial models used by Wall Street in mergers and acquisitions. I am the author of a 50,000+ lines of code mortgage portfolio secondary market discounted cash flow model. I can't get fired from this job, because only I hold the magic keys to the software maintenance (and I own it 100%). Helped Wells Fargo become 1/2 trillion mortgage servicer.
Previously I was the guru of software to calculate tax refunds for oil/gas companies. One of my clients was Enron (different name back then), for whom I found millions in Windfall Profits Tax refunds; from something called the 90% Net Income Limitation rule. Yep, I was a Texas good-old-boy (from NY).
Hey, anyone is entitled to one career mistake!
Previously ... 1) Orthopedic ward guest at St. Joes in Denver; 3 months of wheelchair experience. That mountain climbing is STUPID. Got my first helicopter ride from the top of a 12,000 footer. Was one of those French turbo powered jobs. Voted by all the nurses as only the "second real man" to ever visit their work area. No, it is not what you think. It was more for a positive attitude to get the heck out of there and still smile and be nice to everyone. First real man was a truck driver who bailed out of his rig at dead man's curve on I70 when his brakes failed coming down from the continental divide. 1.1) Dallas Branch Manager for Scientific Timesharing Corp. (wandered around the hallways of American Airlines, ARCO, Exxon, Mary Kay Cosmetics; looking to sell computer services; most fun job ever) 2) USC systems management instructor at Malmstrom Air Force Base in off campus masters program (no this ain't Cal Tech; show me the slightest effort in statistics and a gentleman's B- is yours. Lots of free beers at the Officers Club after class, it was a bit nippy that winter in Montana, hobby shops few and far between, but they had a good hockey team in town if you wanted to see a little mayhem) 2.1) Tennis bum in L.A. (stretching out the unemployment checks to the max) 2.2) Surfing/Volleyball bum in Manhattan Beach, California (choose up sides by unemployment number) 2.3) Yosemite rock climber (STUPID, see above) 3) Space Shuttle Design Engineer (re-entry wing loads, told Rockwell, one way or the other, it will return to earth) 3.1) L-1011 Design Engineer (aeroelastic loads, lots better looking then that DC-10) 3.2) P-3 Orion ditching investigation engineer (my studied conclusions, don't ditch in one) 3.3) SST research engineer (told my boss, don't build it, let the British/French take the monetary bath on this one) 4) S3A Viking design engineer, aerodynamicist, wind tunnel testing, flight test, carrier arrested landing dynamics (really cool hotdog of a plane) 4.1) Successful applicant, USAF, OTS (not the Texas Air National Guard, where OTS is not necessary to be a fighter pilot at $1 million taxpayer expense, and you don't even have to show up) 5) US Navy Nuke engineer (go-fer, but eating lunch on the pier on an island in the Piscataqua River was neat, watching seagulls and lobster boats go by; lots cooler then that steel plant) 6) Bethlehem Steel management trainee, Sparrows Point, Maryland (hot, sweaty, dirty, but the Orioles beat the Dodgers 4 straight in the World Series; that Sandy Colfax, strictly bush league IMHO) 7) Assistant to Manager, Pelham Country Club ($80, six days a week ... in high cotton now) 8) Box and Bottle Refund boy, A&P Supermarket ($1.17 per hour, no tips) 8.1) Golf Caddie, Pelham Country Club (good tips, 2 bags, 18 holes, $10, no golf carts allowed, 20/20 vision then) 9) Lawn Care Specialist for Sr. Vice President of A&P Supermarkets 10) High School football star (er., bench-sitter; just didn't have that killer instinct the coaches were looking for, my attitude, win or lose, it's still just a game) 11) Paperboy
Next ..... Hard to say. The way things are going these days in America, probably minimum wage burger flipper. Hey, it is a hard road being a fancy pants elitist. Nobody pays any attention to us anymore.
Meanwhile ...... 1) Plan is to hike into every nook and corner of 415 square miles of Rocky Mountain National Park 2) And debut at Carnegie Hall as a concert pianist (dream on).
In the wings ..... A few plastic and paper models in the stash
Wish I could ..... 1) Design cardstock models with Autocad, Rhino 3D, Photoshop 2) Date Michelle Pfeiffer 3) Get my 68 GT Mustang Fastback (dark green, natch, gold C-stripe, nugget gold interior, 302 4-bbl, 4 speed, mileage unknown) roadworthy again. It looks fast as heck, but the truth is, most Hondas can best it from a stop light. Currently residing in a Denver mini-storage near Colpar Hobbies. I can visit the car and the best hobby shop between the Mississippi River and San Francisco in one trip down the mountains.

Okay. . . Would you mind elaborating on this a bit? When was this? Who actually employed you (organization)? What were the plant designators for your projects?
