I haven't been on this thread for a long time. I'm 63, retired now, a year ago February. I was a maintenaince tech in the dairy industry helping to keep all you pizza and Taco Bell junkies happy. Our company is the largest cheese packaging company in the world at 5 billion dollars in annual sales and growing. I worked there for 39 years.
I've kept my 1969 since 86 because I sold a 55 chevy and a 66 gmc pickup and have kicked my self in the butt ever since. Once I get all my honey do's done (are they ever?) and my new motor in the 69 I'll really start enjoying my retirement.

Doing air units is the Liebherr LTM 1220 (265 ton) with 197' main boom, 72' folding jib, 2 x 23' boom inserts and a 23' extension with 163,000 lbs. of counterweight. 338' total boom/jib length. That's in her fully dressed configuration and yes, hydraulic offset. An excellent crane.
Dollied up for the road is the Liebherr LTM 1160 (200 ton).

1st Post here.... Just signed up after lurking for years! My name is Craig. I'm 58 and retired from the Federal Gov't. I had a '71 Chevelle in HS and finally purchased another Chevelle. 1970 with a 454, 700R4 and a 12 bolt with 3.73 gears. Numbers matching nothing! LOL Been driving it for about 18 months and decided to make some changes. Ordered a LS7 427/570HP and trans package last week and looking forward to the project!!!

I'm 55 and I've been a millwright with US steel in Gary Indiana for 28 years. I had a couple 66 chevelles in the late 80's then a 75 and a 78 with V8, 4spd, posi, tach,gauges, buckets, console all gone by 89 or so. I've had vettes, camaros,impalas,mustangs,torinos,belairs,c10s,lemans,tempests,bonnevilles, challengers,studebakers,plymouths,GT,SS,RS,RT big blocks small blocks, 3spd,4spd,5spd,6spd, convertibles etc. But I always wanted another chevelle! last summer I found the remains of a rust free 68 SS, apparently it was wrecked in the past and basically parted out. I've found most all of the parts to make a nice cruiser. It will appear mostly stock but have a 427 and minor upgrades for improved drivability. I currently have a 56 belair and 57 corvette that are "done" and a 48 plymouth business coupe 354 hemi and a 49 studebaker truck as projects along with the chevelle.
