  1. Joe Handley added a post in a topic What kind of job do you have?   

    I was in retail for just shy of 24 years until my last job came to an end, ended up getting hired at TruGreen as an Outdoor Sales Rep for the last month and now am in  the process of switching over to a customer service rep, pay isn't quite as good as the sale rep, but it's less physical work, and still better paying than any of the retail jobs I've had.

    Get the '59 Impala kit for the lowering goodies and make a sled out of it!

    I don't know, I'd kinda expect a 2dr coupe that's nearly as big as a mall shuttle to have more interior room than smaller my Chrysler 200 or XJ Cherokee.

    Office Models
    Figured I'd start a thread of the models I plan on using as decoration in my cubicle at work and post new ones as they are finished.
    Gonna start with a pic the Challenger that's already on the desk, although it was taken in the breakroom, due to security regs.

    Unless things have changed, I didn't find the headroom to be a problem, getting in and out of it..... yes, but not head or leg room at the time.  I am appalled by the lack of passenger seat space in her Challenger though!

    if you can swing ine, look for a nice, comfy recliner, the one Mom sleeps in is very easy to do so, and it's one of those helping chairs that not only reclines, but also lifts and tilts forward.

    Mom has been taking Tramadol for at least a year now, sometimes it helps her more than others.  Just be happy you don't have night terrors to go along with the lack of sleep and the pain, she takes something for that every now and then if they start to pick up.  Juzt out of curiousity, are you trying to sleep in a bed or in a recliner, that sometimes helps her sleep, and with all the time Dad spent with her at the hospitals and nursing homes last year when she wasn't quite with it, he's gotten to be the same way.

    My kid sister had an '06 Charger, not the greatest amount of room back there, but it was at least usable.  Now my 4dr '98 XJ Cherokee...........even if they didn't put a wall between the front and back seats of a police model, it could still have been considered cruel and unusual punishment to stick any suspect taller than 5ft tall back there.

    Great looking Daytona build, never had a real Daytona, but I did have a 4dr Hatch Lebaron with that engine and the 3sp Auto, very unsuspecting car.
     
    Speaking of Detective McCall, apparently her Daytona flew some, much like the General Lee, KITT, and Fall Guy Truck

    Went out and bought some building supplies (mostly paint) without an employee discount for the first time in 15 years.......ouch.

    Wow, I'm kinda amazed then.

    No offence, but I have to ask, did he have a job?  Sounds like he probably wouldn't like what I'm about to start training for (which involves sitting and talking to unhappy people), let alone the field sales job I had been doing or any of the retail stuff I did over the last 24 years.

    Lol, gotta love dealing with "kids" sometimes.

    So far, only one persone has picked it up, and that was after doing a slight, Homer Simpson type" .........Ooooohhhhhhh.............", then asking permission.  We had been sitting next to each other in sales and worked up a pretty decent friendship with each other, so I trusted him enough to say yes.  He was wondering where to find them, since he thought it might be something his girlfriend would be interested in doing. I did warn him that it came in plain, white plastic, so she would have to paint it and showed him the blue Revell Drop Top PT Cruiser that was in the box with the Challenger that I'd just detail painted and foiled some (that will start changing this weekend), he thinks she'd like that she could paint it herself.
