Registered nurse in the operating room. Have been an RN in the OR for going on 40 years. A lot has changed in that time.

I am not sure who is running the place anymore, the humans or the robots. Walking into one of our ORs is like walking onto

the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. Probably explains why I like working on the Mustang, back to basics.

I have been restoring and keeping our beloved four- wheeled vehicles looking pretty for thirty years, until the three herniated , and one broken disc in my back, and the two in my neck. My surgeons have only given me a 20% chance on fixing the problem, come to find out that I have a disc deterioration problem. So, I am currently not working !!

I have had Mustang Fever, and Ford Blue running thru my veins since high school.

Worked for the one company for all my 28 year working life (I think I've become institutionalized ::help:: )

 

Metal and NC machinist for the first 25 years, and as the company moved it's focus away from heavy engineering and into armoured vehicle manufacture I made the move into the purchasing department for the last three years as a Buyer of parts for the mineblast-protected armoured trucks shown in the picture.

I started out as a Caddie. Next I was a New Products Quality Engineer with Digital Equipment Corp. Until I took the early retirement package when they were downsizing in 1990. My product was going to Puerto Rico and I didn't want to live there.

Next I became a Automotive Service Tech. I have been a Platinum level Honda Tech, a Level 2 Kia Master Tech and I work on Toyota's. With a very very short time doing the college night school teaching gig. I even owned my own shop for a short time before my son was born.

So, what do you guys do to help support your Mustang addictions?

 

I work for a CaseIH dealership as a sales rep. Need a tractor or combine, give me a call. Sell air compressors as a sideline.

Something different everyday. It's a great job.

Just about have the Boss ready for it's first road trip since the start of restoration. (many,many years) Winter now, can't wait for Spring. Quite a diverse group here.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

:salute:

Well. Here are a few pics of what I can do with stainless steel and a grinder. I skipped a few steps in the pictures because the difference is not that visible in the pictures.

 

 

I REALLY need you to come visit in North Carolina for a few weeks. We'll have a ball.
