Well, yesterday was my first day at the new place. It is a big change going from Westchase to downtown. My previous job was very hard to leave, but money talks. Hopefully I will have a Whipple within a month and start paying my house off early. Anybody else work downtown? Iím in the Chase building at 600 Travis. Maybe we could meet for lunch?

Congratulations Keith!!! :thumbsup: I know you liked your previous job, and the people you worked with, but you really needed to spread your wings. Pretty soon you will be after Phil with cash in hand haggling about buying the 93 back :D .

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty excited about the future.

Philly, Philly, where's that '93 at? :)

Jimmy - I'm not sure about it being the historic building. It is the tallest in Houston though at 75 stories.

:doubt:

"From its completion in 1929 until 1931 it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River, and from 1929 until 1963 it dominated the skyline of Houston as its tallest building."

I think the building near the Galleria is the tallest in Houston....:dunno:

Houston's and Texas' tallest building, JPMorganChase Tower (305m/1,002f, 75 stories, 1981).
The building has a free observatory on the 60th floor which is opened during business hours.

The Williams Tower is the third tallest in Houston at 64 stories, but the tallest in the nation outside of a downtown area. The Chase Tower is the tallest in Houston at 75 stories.

Mike... That quote is from the link I posted about the other Chase presence downtown.
The Gulf building is which also owned by Chase... which is what I mistakenly thought Keith meant... Chase has offices above the floor level bank... and I thought it was the Chase building... it's not... it's the Gulf building.

the (semi)full text... from --> http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/GG/ccg6.html

"GULF BUILDING, HOUSTON. The Gulf Building is one of the preeminent Art Deco skyscrapers in the southwestern United States. Architects Alfred C. Finn, Kenneth Franzheim,qqv and J. E. R. Carpenter were commissioned in 1927 by Jesse H. Jonesqv to design a structure of strikingly modern style and commanding height.
From its completion in 1929 until 1931 it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River, and from 1929 until 1963 it dominated the skyline of Houston as its tallest building.
The building, at Main Street and Rusk Avenue in the downtown financial and petroleum business district, is of steel frame construction, clad in Indiana limestone, supported by a six-story base, and T-shaped in plan; it carries a thirty-story tower faced with tapestry brick laid in Flemish bond."

Sorry to muddy up this thread...

Keith,

Congrats man!!!

Hey, by the way, my neighbor finally sold the little red 93 Cobra. Some guy from east TX just bought it for $11K. I saw him pass by my house the other day with it on his trailer.

I would have loved to have bought it, but I thought $11K was a bit much, given the work it needed to put it back to original condition. It sure was a great car though, given its history. One owner, never been wrecked, and no mods - ever.

Oh well... the timing just was not right for me to get it.

Anyway, congrats on the new job. By the way, who are you working for now? JPMorganChase? or someone else in that building?... just wondering?

That was a good platform to restore a car. The only damage was time.

I work for Sanders Harris Morris Group. I manage the Desktop support/Help Desk department. Currently I have 3 people working for me, but I'm looking for a 4th.
