What age are you?

How old are you? And maybe add what you do . . . CURRENTLY. (No need to fill the thread with a complete resume!)

-

I'm 63. I do custom painting, pinstriping and airbrush . . . when there's work. Otherwise, I'm retired!

I've had my '66 Elkie since 1978. Also bought a couple parts cars back then, ('66 SS and '67 SS), to scavenge a few things to upgrade the Elkie.

-

(Stole this idea from another forum! )

1966 El Camino

Custom painters don't screw up! They just add more graphics.

Re: What age are you?

Pretty much retired. When the wife's stuff is done, I do what needs to be done, then I do what I want to. I don't get to the last one a whole lot.

There was a large thread that had a "Who are you" kind of subject, but I can't seem to find it.

Re: What age are you?

67 Bob. but don't feel a day over 77. still trucking about 9 months a year & putting the touch on unemployment for about 3 months. and then there's SS (social security). so if there's any benefit to being an old fart, I'm living the dream.

Re: What age are you?

I'm 68 and finding it hard to put down the trowel as I still enjoy it. Glad there are a few younger folks getting into this car thing. I wonder who the oldest TC'er is? There should be an award for the title.

I bet you are doing something with turbine or compressor manufacturing at PWA Middletown? Worked in Test Engineering in East Hartford way back when. Had a great time watching the results of those tests back when the JT9d was nearly "unstable" . One actually self destructed in the test cell in East Hartford and scared the daylights out of the cell operator. Us engineers just wanted to examine the pieces while the operator cleaned his shorts. How am I doing on your question?

Re: What age are you?

I am 65, and am retired from a U.S. Navy laboratory where I was a machinist, then a mechanical engineer and later a program manager. I have been into Chevelles since I was 14 and saw my first magazine advertisement for the '66 SS 396. Have owned many SS Chevelles since, including the '69 I now own.
