I tried to get on at BAH. They wanted to bring me on as an admin assistant (aka secretary). :histeric:

Imagine that - 4 years of policy experience in DC and 3 years of congressional work and BAH thinks I would make a good secretary at $38,000 a year:bonkers: :histeric: :nono: never understood that. I was told that although I had all the qualifications and personal relationships that would make for a superb analyst - I had yet to finish a degree program (spent 4 years at Ohio State and became a little too involved with the political arena and failed to attend a few classes here and there).

Now - I am working for Uncle Sam in uniform :)

Now we're listing previous cars? I would need two posts for that and I am sure many others would too! I had some really neat ones when I bent the law a bit and made lots of dough! Now, I am struggling to put gas in the V! LOL

I'll just give you guys one that was the coolest of them all and on top of that, it had an LS6 in it!

In 1991 I had a 1970 LS6 Chevelle SS with 4100 miles, yes 4 thousand 1 hundred miles, with $4k in Motion speed options listed on the bill of sale as dealer installed options. Among these options was a quick shift rear end gear change which made the 323's become 456's in about 5 seconds! In 1991 I got $65k for the car and thought it was a home run! You wouldn't believe what it is worth today!

Imagine how bored I am today to write all this stuff?! This car was incredible though!

How do you young guys afford the V..just curious because I lived in Lauderdale from age 12-19 (27 now) and made $500 a week and still managed to build a 10sec Camaro over that time by not ever going out and searching the couch cusions for rent money. Sorry if I'm getting too personal just really wondering....

I would think that mom and dad have some money. To me it's just dumb to buy such a car for an 18 year old but that's just me. I had a 1984 V6 camaro and to me that was the sh*!. Even at 33, now I wonder what is going to top the V next, so at 18.............:cookoo:

Maybe the 18 y/o bought it.

Maybe the 18 y/o got lucky at the sperm bank & landed stinkin' rich parents

Yeehaw! You're 18 and you got 400HP!

Drive it like you stole it!

18 and 400hp is not a good combination. Shit, 18 and 100hp is deadly if you look at all the losers around here in the imports. Scary!

Hi Everyone, my name is Mike and yes I'm a V aholic.

I'm 27, reside in North Jersey

I sell rocks for a living (diamonds and other precious trinkets)

I just have the V as i am trying to buy a house. Hopefully in the future to acquire a truck.


I'm proud to say I'm able to afford the V by myself with no co-sign -me too
