Lisa and I both work for the government (state, that is). Believe me, I couldn't afford a cobra on my salary! Hubby works for Mercedes - maintenance, programming robots that build cars and fixing all that stuff when it breaks. We traded our 99 Black coup for an 03 Redfire for Valentine's Day!!! :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

thanks for asking !! :thumbsup:


my husband Tim is a heavy machinery erector and he runs / owns his own part of the business. His father owns half and we should be buying him out soon when he retires.

This business supports 5 families that are our relatives and 3 families that are our close friends. They depend upon Tim and he does have allot on his shoulders -- but he does like it and he knows that if ever wants out I will support him 100%..

He erects machinery that is anywhere from 5 lbs to several hundred tons --- it is dangerous work and is not for the "faint of heart"...

sometimes, he has to open up the top of a building and set the machine with a helicopter..... now --- that's hairy..

One time his pilot set his machine -- and then a few hours later Tim found out that the same pilot crashed on another job --- some type of "failure".... he walked away with just a few minor injuries... thank goodness...

Anyway -- he Tim works hard - sometimes too hard...

I am an administrative assistant for the company and I also run and own my own small business...

we work hard --- but we do try and find time to enjoy our families, our friends, our pets --
and our Cobra's / ' Stangs ......

Hey Matt ---

well if I wasn't swimming in debt..... I probably could be rich, but not famous.... hummmm, maybe infamous :rotf:

of course I'd remember you, how could I forget??

the 95 is one of those right place/right time things that I picked up knowing I was going to sell it. It is a 1995 F350 dualie with a stake bed style utility body. It has 90k and is a 7.3 diesel, automatic. no power options, no a/c. but it does have a 9' fisher plow. Someone I know needed cash and dumped it on me for 5 grand. I already have someone who is willing to give me 9 for it. It may not be here very long ;)

I manage an analytical instrument facility for the Department of Chemistry at UNC-CH. Industry pays more but university life is better or so I keep telling myself. Cars:
One green 99 convertible (roll bar is on order ;)) - I thought a 5 year loan would be cheaper in the short term than the 3 year loan we had on our '01 Taurus. Factor in insurance, tires, future mods and track events... well, no special Christmas presents for me. OK, ok, I just wanted a 'real' car, early mid-life crisis? Doesn't matter, I'm hooked.

One green '97 Dodge Caravan for the family. Needs more attention but...

Working on a '66 Plymouth Valiant with a Mopar friend (his car, my garage) for THSCC OT events. Will my education ever stop? Hoping it will lead into a 94 Cobra project car.:thumbsup:

Winddysvt,
We moved from the Chicago area down to NC 3 years ago. I wanted a mustang convertible long ago but didn't think I could 'handle' it through a Chicago winter nor could I justify needing a coupe in addition to a vert for those wonderfully cold January and February days (Ok those of you from North Dakota or Montana or any of the other more northern states, I know you have it colder!). I trust you are doing better than I thought I would.... Anyway, I love the vert and I get to drive with the top down in February!
