Default Post your Job and what other cars you own/have owned

I think I've decided this is a forum to my liking. The people here are pretty cool, there isn't a bunch of n00bs because most can't take the intial beating and leave, (which i think is a GREAT way to keep the retards out) and most importantly, the wealth of information stored on this site is outstanding.

So basically I just want to know the people better here as I plan to stay for a while. I'll be starting a 1jz swap around this time next year and will track all my progress on this forum. So what else do you own or have owned and what do you do for money that you can talk about openly?

I'm USAF, job is Tactical Aviation Mechanic by title, Crew chief for short. I work on F-16, F-15, A-10, and soon, the F-35. I haven't had a chance to work on the F-22 but from what i gather it sucks. I've owned over 13 different cars in Japan alone, to include a 1995 Supra (NA-T), R33 Skyline that started life as an Auto RB20 and was sold as an AWD RB25 bored forged and GT35R'd (I didn't do the AWD conversion), 1998 RX-7, EVO IV, Twin turbo'd Legacy B4, 1991 MR2 gen 3 swapped, and several others. I "built" the Skyline on my own with some help from a neighbor in my building but for the most part was me. So share! I want to know about you people.

Currently own:
2005 Corolla XRS (2zzge 6 speed)
1998 Honda Ascot (G20 2.0 5 cylinder FTW)
2000 Toyota Chaser (1jzgte AUTO :()

Have owned:
2x 1991 Chevrolet Blazer (4wd 4.3L)
Lexus is200 (1gfe 2.0 6 cylinder ------- tiburon fail all over again)
Legacy B4 (Japanese version has Twin turbo EJ20)
1996 Camaro (V6)
1996 Evo IV (disgusting)
1998 Rx7 (apex seal destroyer)
1990 R32 (rb25 swap moderately fast)
1994 R33 (auto rb20 NA swap to awd 5 speed rb25 built with a GT35r)
1995 Supra (started as auto na ended as w58 NA-t)
1992 MR2 (gen 3 swapped ct20b etc.)
1995 Silvia (Na to sr20)
2001 Silvia (Na to sr20)
I think that's it.
So share! I want to know about you people.

I searched the ---- out of this forum to find it because somebody mentioned it. I couldnt find it and I went back 9-10 pages.

EDIT - Found it, but there's more than likely been a lot of new members since it was created last year.

Um, as I just edited, I DID search, but searched for within the last 6 months. No point in bringing a dead *** thread back to life especially since it's a year old. Besides, if I posted in there you guys would still bust my ***** for reviving a dead thread. Either way you f---s are gonna jerk me around so its better this way anyway.

The prior thread was job and education. Got plenty of both, check out the other thread if interested.

Hey, djp, what's a Medical Physicist?

This thread adds the CAR element. So:

Current:
1966 Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible (440 -- I've owned it for 29 years)
1981 Mercedes 380SL (makes wife look hot)
1990 Mazda Miata Turbo (DD on nice days)
2000 Ford Expedition 4x4 (horsemobile)
2009 Pontiac G8 GT (DD in inclement weather or when I need back seats)

Some Notables from the Past:
1970 Caddy Eldo (10:1 502 -- 400HP 550FT-LBS and FWD -- What a Hoot!)
1973 Caddy Eldo Convertible (wife really wanted it -- it looked like an RC car when she drove it -- she got lots of tickets with it -- not nearly as good as the 1970)

Looking at this list, I guess I'm mostly a V-8 guy.
