Mark-
I'm going to be working as a lube tech/mechanic in training/schooling. I plan to go to school through them to become a master tech.
haha, tony, I don't know wages yet, but better than 9.50 is what he said.
Thanks mike.

I'll try and remember there shawn, I'm sure you'll have to remind me. It looks like we're gunna have quite a few supra owners working there. One of the new guys over on Supramania just started working there, he let me know about it, and he said there was another 2 people I think that owned supras, one a mktreal.

Sounds like a decent plan Kyle...although it will beat the enthusiast out of you long term. We have two techs that were lubbies to start and worked their way through school. We have the added benefit of a T-ten program (Toyota sponsored and funded) at the local community college here (pimptrizkit is in it), so we have no shortage of kids looking for the same thing. It can lead to a good career for sure. My dad turned wrenches for a living, that's how I got into cars. But he always told me not to do it...yet somehow I ended up working a parts counter for a local auto parts store, and that led to a job at Vancouver...where I've been for 11 years now. Wish you the best!!

Mark,techs in training up here have Shoreline CC T-Ten program.I'm sure that's where they will send Kyle "I have several T-ten licence plates from them".

Kyle,we'll talk more,but,having dealt with all the local dealerships up here,all I can add,is stay out of shop politics :D the best you can.

We'll see.
I love working on cars, and just as anything will run you dry if you do it for a long long time, I except it to at least a little.
Thanks for the insight mark.
