I didn't realize getting rid of my Miata would have such a profound effect on Corky.

mixed blessing? how do you work as a turbo engineer under Corky without feeling like you're in a shadow all day?

anyway it sounds like a cool gig.

I would personally make sure Corky had a constant supply of those blended margaritas he's so fond of in order to keep the shadow at bay. I would rather work under someone with a good reputation and a life of good experience then well... Tom.

Corky dubbed Tim "Je-sus" (spanish pronunciation). Tim did not like C.J.. So taking off of the 'turbo god' theme, we got "je-sus". Corky does thinks that highly of him. Except he prefers beer. He might learn better one day, we shall see.
