Hey Everyone. Been lurking a while and got tired of not being able to see the pics here. I've been a mechanic for over 20 years, currently a Freightliner certified tech, worked on generators( military and civilian), trucks( military and civilian), tanks( military only), inboard and outbord marine engines, heavy equipment, drag cars, built fiberglass boats, and am starting a distilling business from the ground up in my spare time.

I drive 48 miles a day, too and from work, and currently have a '90 Jetta 1.8 8valve gas-job. Been trying my hand at some hypermiling stuff, mostly slowing down( definition of stress for an ex-drag racer) to 60 on the pedal- up hill, and EOnC down hill. LOTS of coasting oppertunities 'round here on the highway!

LOVE the boat tails I've seen here and look forward to reading and seeing more!!!


It is always very amusing how our imagination is put to the test when overcoming reality. Redyaris
