Currently have 29/60 credits at community college. I'm studying mechanical engineering and want to do work with animatronics or robotics.

I have been working on cars ever since I could walk. I mainly wanted a diesel because I just like the difference and superiority of them. It's kinda funny, I'll be driving my car and then think.. whoa, it's a diesel.

I am involved with the Delorean Club of Florida as a potential area coordinator, we have at least 100 owners in the state. As well as a new member of the Delorean Owners Association and will help bring that club back to its former glory. I am not an owner but an enthusiast and do plan on owning a Deloream DMC-12 soon.

Also, I put together Mercedes Benz car shows for my fellow classic owners in the central FL area.Last turnout I had 40 cars come to the little get together.

When you see a bright Tech they are much better than most of the Engineers, if not all. Some of the best mechanics/techs makes the best Engineers...

Software and Electrical engineering to be. Fluent in C/C++, Java, PHP, CGI, XML, Assembly, and a couple of other low level languages

Been messing with the mechanical side of things since high school during machine shop class. The most fun I've ever had in school

Yeah, I mean, where do you put the thermometer? In the exhaust?

Maybe if more cars looked like this then we'd have more veterinarians :

Handyman and mechanic. I've taken apart most mechanical parts of cars. Sometimes I put them back together.

I try to fix things instead of replacing them when possible.

I took some engineering classes in college.

almost enough credits for BA lol. 16+ yrs in pharmacy and a few as care-giver in a group home for mentally disable. Just new to exiting industry of brokering legal & ID Theft services with a 36yr old company on the NYSE =). I plan on being a lifelong learner, read 10 pages a day of a good book;philosophy/self-improvement/finances/ect,. Although the 1rst recorded billionaire J.Paul Getty said, I'd rather reap 1% of the efforts from 100 people than 100% of my own. He understood the concept of leverage*.

Also a new guy to the forums. I am a Fleet Manager in the Inland Barging Industry, which doesn't have anything to do with aerodynamics. We do concern ourselves with "hydrodynamics" or how well a tow goes through the water. We also alert boats as to port times so they can throttle down to save fuel. If the boat doesn't need to be in town asap, they can adjust their speed, eta and fuel consumption accordingly.[We use a lot of fuel]. I am proud to say that we move freight for pennies on the dollar to the railroads and trucking companies...
Anyway, I just started with a 99 Cavalier and have adjusted my driving style. Let's see how much fuel I can save.
