Default What do you do for a living.....

I know this is more off topic, but I really only care about the 5.0 guys.....those are the only ones I know. Anyway, I see a lot of guys on here have some $$ to put in their cars and I always wonder what you do for a living how old, and how much you make a year. Some may think it is too personal, but we all know how has it and who doesn't and beside, it is just the net....if you are embarrased you could lie and no one would know. I just always wonder what other people do for money....I can't imagine doing anything different

Anyway, I guess I will start

I am 28, married, 2 kids, single income

I am a Tool and Die maker and I make around $55,000 a year depending on hours. In my area this is pretty average.

How about you guys??

BTW, if this isn't ok to post here, just delete it...thanks

I dont make enoughmoney to race so I do lots of side work on hot rods on the side at home to pay for my racing. Its tough doing just one car we have 2 onewill be ready for the spring againit is a high 10sec. carwith the old set up and the new set up will be a even faster its my wifes car and then there is mine I have been working on for years I hope to run some low 9s or a bit faster with it.both are fox bodys and both will have turbos. the son will be racing the wifes car by the end of the summer so he has to help work on it.

I'm 22 and I'm an unemployed bum. [:@]

I'm in college full time and took a year off from work (used to work grocery, sucked big time). I'm in the process of getting a job at my school as a flight instructor.
