I do computer repairs under warranty for quite a few companies in the north central part of Iowa. Trained as network and systems admin but tired of dark little rooms. I also own an income tax preparation company so my time is pretty well tied up.
I have always been a bit of a car enthusiast and love old cars, but don't presently own one.

Boy do I know it, the last old cars I owned were a 70 Chevelle and a 66 Catalina convertible. Both were expensive to maintain and horrible on gas mileage. The Catalina only got 12 mpg no matter what I did and the Chevelle was by far worse at 7 mpg, cost a fortune just to go to the gas station.

Took the Blue slug to the shop today and had the tires run up to 44psi and had the alignment done, was off by 1/2 degree on one wheel. Dont know what they did at the shop but when I took it there it was averaging 71.7 for the last 375 miles and when I got it back it was down to 70.0 for the last 378 miles, I think they went out for a joy ride.

As my screenname says, I'm a pilot (flight instructor to be more specific) in Arizona. As much flying as I do, I don't have much time for other hobbies, but atleast I get to fly airplanes!!
