I am now officially self-unemployed (as of May 10), but retain the side gig of repairing Mustang wiring harnesses. 33+ years of Federal service, all as a civilian working for the Navy plus 5 years as an Assistant Professor at a State University. After 17 years of schooling and 38 years of employment, I deserve a retirement.

Well... he DID just ask how to remove the front shocks earlier and called himself a 'putz.'  I wasn't going to say anything, but even after I removed all of the computerese gibberish (see above), it still doesn't make much sense.

 

I'm willing to cut him some slack, though.  He's from across the pond in Blighty, so technically "English" is not his first language.   :whistling:

He will be sober in the morning, mostly. But, the barmaid will still be old and ugly (grossly paraphrased, for students of history). Allow the man to, at least in part, to redeem himself. Chuck

I'm a wheeled vehicle mechanic in the Army. Before I joined I was a hydraulic press/forklift mechanic.

Browsing around the forums again seeing all the old topics I posted in.

 

Update for this one, I fufilled my contract in the Army 5 years ago, got out and immediately landed a job as a technician at a GM dealer. Been there ever since.

Been designing and building kitchen and bath cabinetry as well as other cabinetry for 40 years now.

I own my own shop and range from 3 to 4 employees. my hobby has been my career.

My other passion has always been admiring first generation mustangs, especially 71-73's until last Sept. when i became the owner of a 71 vert filly.

10 years US Navy submarines, now I'm a QA engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory. I help to make fun things out of plutonium. Anyone seen the new Mars rover? We helped build that :classic_wink: Still trying to figure out how to build a time machine out of a DeLorean and some plutonium...

Hey don't give up on the time machine. My instructor in tool & die worked on the manhatten project. He died from cancer. Be safe. He machined lots of the graphite pieces. No telling what else.

I'm a Police Officer in Florida. I work for the Miami Dade police Department. 26 yrs as a road Patrolman. I'm retiring this year. I have enjoyed my career and loved everyday I  have gone on duty. If you guys are interested, Google me, Officer Mario Gutierrez.  I have, and am still learning from everyone on this site, its an awesome community.

Thank you to everyone.

Just an update. Even though I have now been retired since 2018, I did get a part time job after doing nothing for a year. I walked into the Alamo Gun Range in Naples Florida to do some shooting and was impressed with their professionalism. I asked to speak with the manager and requested that if he ever had an opening to please consider me as a possible hire. Two weeks later he did hire me! I sell guns in the show room, two days a week for a couple of hours and a couple of days in the week, I also teach Basic firearm safety, handling and shooting and concealed carry classes. It keeps me busy doing something I enjoy and puts a few dimes in my pocket to feed my Q code restoration. Life is good!

Just remember John Wick didn’t kill all those people for a random car. It was a Mustang
