Default The "Show yerself" Thread

We have all posted wonderful pics of our cars - they're far prettier than we.

Of all the folks here, I believe only Tallon has posted a pic of himself (probably because he's such a good looking boy) - and its high time we revealed our ugly mugs and bios.

No excuses, and no waiting for a "pretty" pic...

I'm Kai, an Env. Consultant, farmer, redneck and heretic - some might call me a Renaissance kind of fellow; I don't think so, I just do a lot of stuff. Anyway, here I am:

Kai - Great idea.

I'm Rob, trained as an aerospace engineer but currently working as a business operations manager for a large computer company (aka big blue). For the past 20 years, I've been an IT manager.

Another farking engineer...I almost took my chemE, but decided on medical school, got accepted, but at my later age made the wise decision not to.

I like to play in the dirt anyway!

Oooopps, forgot to mention that I make drugs for a living. Chemical Engineer. Yes, another engineer. Mr. Fix-It.
What did you realistically expect? I don't believe there will be many liberal-arts-gearheads in this bunch.

OK, I'll play.

The day I picked up my new (to me) '74 2.7. Completely un-molested with 32k on the clock, hasn't run since '77. I bought it in one piece, but now its in multiple pieces in my garage (judging by the condition of everything, I actually think it may have started, but didn't want to chance it before going through it all). Hope to drive it by the mid of July or so (waiting on parts from Germany!)

I'm recent grad, with a degree in Air Traffic Control (enroute) from a FAA sponsored program. Lucked into a pretty good gig in the auto industry for now, while I wait on a call from the FAA...(federal gov hiring...moves at a snail's pace, even with veteran's preference). No napping at work for me!!!
