Default Sort of new but, glad to be here

First off let me say that the search has been my best friend.

This is my new account name my old one was mazdaracer2388 but I never made a post or a reply. Instead I just set back and took in as much info as I could possibly take.

As of now I am in the middle of clean up due to pussycain faye. That little storm actually gave me some problems due to the fact that I live in the god damn keys. (the keys are horrible don't ever come down here)

My car is on stands now. I am swapping my old sebring homo charger for a nice modified FM3 setup(my sig explains it well). Over the past year I have had my car from a daily driver, to gutted auto cross only, to restoring to be a daily driver again(but with more power).

More about me, I am currently a 19yo student at FKCC about to start my second year with hopes to transfer to UCF. I am going to get my mechanical engineering degree and hopefully work somewere cool that lets me build crazy **** all day. hopefully cars but if not thats cool too.

If any body wants some pics from the storm or my car just click my myspace link. I update it constantly for my buddies back up north.

stay out of the automotive industry... most of the fun jobs don't pay as well and are damn near impossible to get. if you get your M.E. look into the oil field, it pays well, and after 20-25 years you can be a private contractor which essentially gets paid mid 6 figures to **** around with your hobbies and occasionally attend a meeting.

I'll keep that in mind. I have a friend in my old town and her father works as a engineer on a rig in texas and makes dank money.

I really want to build cars but it's really starting to look like I will be doing that in my spare time. oh well....I'll just get a different job and make more money.

Definitely. Kind of like when I had a plane and was talking with some airline pilots about becoming a commerical pilot. They said to keep doing whatever I was doing to be able to afford the plane and keep flying fun. It becomes much less fun when it is work.
