haha funny. Yeah I still got the beige Fleetwood, just uploaded new pics and a vid or two of it in the FWD forum. Just put a turbo muffler and cut out the Cat (it was knocking and plugged up after 60K) so check those out.

As for the hottie in my default she used to be a friend during the oldMyspace days and that's how long it was since I was here. But don't knock her too bad, she is American after all ;)

Stoney met a girl and that was the last we heard.

I tried contacting him a couple years back when I had his number, it was changed. Also before I closed myspace, he wasn't checking that and his girlfriend only allowed people she knew to message her.

Nader launched a lawsuit, but then he found out I drove a Corvair, which means I could never be confused ;)

Nah, at the time I was taking pilot lessons for recreational use. Almost finished but then I moved to FL for tech school and now live in GA where I was working as a mechanic for a regional airlines before they left town, now I work for the DoD on these old things.

Wicked pic. A friend of mine 10 years ago was an airplane mechanic and he hated how the automotive mechanics made more than double the airline ones make, yet I think he took as much training as anyone else. We might have talked about this 5 years ago or so, I remember talking to someone about it, might of been you

Night Wolf

Yes, as per the gov't, aircraft mechanics are considered "unskilled labor" Despite needing hefty tech school and putting lives at risk. Because of that, industry wide - the wages are not what they should be.

To put it in other terms, Bubba that works at a Chrysler assembly line installing passenger seats in cars is considered skilled labor, the cheif at a local restaruant is considered skilled labor..... and the ramper throwing your bags into the cargo bay of the aircraft is considered skilled labor. Yet the mechanics that maintain all the airplanes in the US are considered unskilled labor. When something goes wrong, it nearly always magically gets traced back to a mechanic and in the civillan world, you can personally be fined and get jail time if peoples lives are lost - yet we are unskilled labor.

*blip* I've got a pulse again. Been quite a while since I was here, and yea, the Eldorado is about 6 years gone, but the Fleetwood soldiers on. These days up in power, but down in luxury. Cam, CAI, Transmission, Headers, Tuning, etc. About 315 horse, and 380 ish torque.

Sadly Roo, multiple times. The original 2.56 open was in, and when it was beginning to leak, I got that 3.42 posi built. That went boom... just over a year ago, and because money was extremely tight, I just scavenged a base 2.56 open again and tossed it in. Money's still tight and other things need to be fixed before I consider any more building, and I have some potential major life changes coming up which would freeze any build for 3-7 years. (I'm considering leaving the kitchen and returning to medicine. It is completely financially motivated.)
