Re: OK, how old are you guys and what do you do for a living??

I'm 40 and work as an engineer at UMI Performance. I don't have a Chevelle currently but of course would love to have one.

I have a mechanical engineering degree from Penn State and 11 years oval track driving experience. 14 career wins and two track championships. I'm also a tech writer for Circle Track, Stock Car and Speedway Illustrated.

My oval track experience actually prepared me for my job at UMI. Making a heavy stock car go around a corner properly is a lot like making a Chevelle work properly.

I love my job and have made many good forum based friends on Chevelles. Great group of guys (and ladies).

I'm the big 50 and the owner of an electrical distributorship. AKA LEGALIZED HUSTLER. Divorced and been in the womans hater club for three years. It's really nice coming home without being asked how was your day. I didn't get to experience that she worked with me 24/7.
I went to buy a new A.T.V. today and i guess it wasn't meant to be they couldn't find the key. When all else fails go FISHING.G

Hey everyone, I'm 22 years old, I'm a real estate professional. I don't have a Chevelle, but soon hope to own one. The dream car is a tuxedo black 1970 454 LS6. If any of you guys have seen Dazed and Confused it's pretty much the exact replica of Wooderson's "Melba-Toast." She's a true beauty. Saving the money as the days go by. Look forward to getting to know everyone here.

Hey everybody, I'm 59 years old and I have been selling industrial pumps for 25 years. I own several Chevelles and really enjoy the restoration discusions on this site. Working towards getting my 1970 back on the road again. Henry

Re: OK, how old are you guys and what do you do for a living??

Hey Guys, I'm 43 years old, and I'm a metal worker for a door company. My passion lately has been making my all black Chevelle more competitive for Hot Rod Dragweek. I hope to be in the tens, and still maintaining close to fifteen miles per gallon. I am running a Chris Straub valvetrain, CK Performance 200r4, and a nine inch with 3;80 gears. I told Chris that I want to race the car, and make it survive on the street. Jon
