Hi,

me_on_hood.jpg

I thought it would be cool to get to know all of my fellow caddyinfo.com members better. I'll start!

I drive a 1992 STS. I am 16 years old. I enjoy bike racing, bodybuilding (I don't take steroids), blowing glass, going to the beach, and driving the Caddy! I am an entrepreneur :D! I own my own glass blowing business and am a retail supplier of beads for jewelry via my website: www.islandofbeads.com. I plan on going to college and graduating with a major in entrepreneurship and a minor in exercise science. I plan to own a health club later in my life. Hopefully I can get a nice franchise going. I am very proud that I have been able to maintain a 3.96 G.P.A while participating in Nation Honor Society and athletics. I work my tail off in school and it pays off. Attached is a picture of me being a freak on the hood of my car. I didn't want to do any hoodsurfing, but my brother talked me into it, haha. B)

Now, I want to hear about you! :D

I think his idea is OK. We know this is not a dateing service. I think he gets that we all help each other so much and look out after each others problems so much with our cars as though we have been friends for ever. After all we are ALL looking out for each others most treasured posession- Our cars... I think that since we are all doing this, Aaronm feels that it would be nice to share just a bit more about our selfs to make this just a bit more friendler. For the longest time my girl was asking me " ware do you know him from" and " how does he know the problem,did he check your car for you?". We are all trusting each other on ways to solve problems so why not get a bit more friendler. What about me?? Well there is nothing to great to tell about me. I never really got to do what I wanted to do in life for a carear and now I work for the man just to survive.

There was a previous topic where everyone told a little bit about themselves and what they do. I'll bet Scotty can find it.

If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Well I'm bringing this one back to the top. A little about me. I'm 46 years old. I started working for a privately owned company 23 years ago training on Hydraulic Demolition Equipment. I started as general mechanic and was going on the road for them when needed delivering heavy equipment. I still hold my trailer endorsements and get out now and then just to stay up on things. A few years later I worked my way through the ranks to Hydraulic Demolition Specialist. My original goal was to become a police officer. Many of my high school friends went on to that and i'm sorry to this day that I did not follow my dream. I keep in touch with them, some are retired now and working part time in companys they have built. I'v been doing this now for 20 years. I head and run the only authorized service center in the US for the Hydraulic Rock Splitter. This tool and its power pack can be carried by two men and has the ability to break into pieces any size of rock or concrete. The larger the break required is as simple as useing multiple tools to do the job. The tool is also able to remove only a specific section if required like a surgeons scaple. The tool opperates under water also and one of it's uses is to remove worn and crumbleing bridge concrete supports. In my spare time I do computer repairs and run a small word of mouth consulting business. My customers are typically those looking to buy a computer system but know nothing about them. My hobbys are target shooting, mountain biking, photography and ham radio. I hold a general class federal communications license. I love pets and have had my Lab for 12 years now. I enjoy my car very much and love the comfort and power of the 93 Seville. I take care of it every day. I enjoy waxing and keeping it up.

LOL Sotty! :D Actually... with that amazing shine on your hood it appears that you are hugging yourself Aaron! :rolleyes: Hope there was no zippers or metal snaps on that jacket! :o

I actually didn't get a chance to get into that old "what's your Job post" so I'll try and get a post on this one later. I have to get back to work here right now... For once I am really busy! :P

I've always wondered what our members look like and what they do. We had a topic some time back on occupations and I thought it was interesting.

I don't really have time for a hobby (except taking care of my Eldo). For the past couple of years, in addition to making a living as an architect, I've been studying to be a screen actor. I've done a lot of classwork and plan to get serious about looking for work this summer.

I'm not sure how to post a photo here (I certainly don't have any under 100K) but if you want to connect a face with the Poobah moniker, please visit my website:

Woah Poobah! :o Talk about putting a face with a name... That Ghost character you played (with the bullet-hole in your head), makes one lasting impression! :blink::P

Interesting website, I always wanted to create my own but never got into it...

Aaron, I love the car and rims ... cute pic.

I'm somewhat confused by the pic .... kinda looks like you're on top of the STS in a mating rutual.

What will your offspring look like .... I'm thinkin' a small, black Cimarron :D

OK, now that I have a minute during lunch here I thought I would post a quick rundown and picture. It's not the best picture (kind of dark), but it is me in my element... The garage, working on the cars! ;) I was pulling the tired old 3.1 out of my daughter's GP a couple weeks back. That is my 70 Firebird in the middle stall (resting), and the Sprucegoose is behind that.

I am a 44-yr-old toolmaker / cnc programmer by trade. Started that right out of high school. Like I mentioned in other posts, this comes in very handy for fabricating/machining stuff for may numerous cars and toys! :P

My wife and I have been married for 22 years now, and have 2 teenagers behind the wheel! Man, do they keep me busy. :) I love to watch them play soccer! They are both excellent athletes. I enjoy snowmobiling, hunting, traveling, and going camping. I am an avid runner and bicyclist also. :)

Well, I posted in the old link Scotty reported, so I'll not repeat, except to say it's a little outdated.

Sprucegoose used up all the comical rejoinders I had in mind. darn!

In my college years I rode a Judsen supercharged Corvair convertible. What a difference a generation (or two) makes!

After college, however, I did that MGB with the small block Chevy/Torqueflight tranny and some other stuff . . . .

Regards,

Warren

That's cool. My dad is a high school teacher (have him as a teacher right now :D); we learned about how to use a CNC router. It sure is interesting! We draw things and then cut them out. We made a CO2 car and a chassis for an electric car. My dad is really excited because he is getting a three axis router. All that CNC stuff is very expensive!

You do target shooting? Where do you go? I'm in New Jersey too and enjoy pistol shooting. Maybe we can get together sometime and go shooting. I'm also into photography and hold an FCC license. Call letters: WQCA581

Yeah, it is a lot of fun. I still enjoy it after all these years. Of course it has changed a lot since I started in the trade. $$ yes, you are right there... although they are coming down considerably now. The last few high-end machining centers and EDM's that I selected for our shop were between $120-240K! :o Glad that isn't my money I'm spending! :P Those little 3axis routers are pretty cool, I can see where your dad would be pretty excited about that!

I'll chime in...

I'm a highschool student here in Windsor, and obviously am a gear head. I plan on going to the Center for Creative Studies, an art and design college in Detroit, for automotive design. I am actually submitting my portfolio next week (cross my fingers lol). So I guess that renders me an artist (I have drawn cars since I could hold a crayon! lol) My sport is golfing, although I found myself on the highschool baseball team this year! I also have played the piano since I was little, and just got into guitar.

For a job...well I'm a teenager, so what are my options? lol I chose a pizza delivery place, and have been doing that for over a year now. It is fun because of all the kookey people you deal with, and I drive their own car (a 2001 Cavalier), so I don't have to worry about wear and tear on the STS.

Now that summer is coming, I can get back into my hot weather hobby...detailing! I love doing it, and it pulls in some pretty good money too!

I guess I'll have to put all of the ice fishing gear back in the igloo, now that the weather is warming up...

lol

just kidding! ... A little Canadian humour!

Always wanted to see a thread like this come up. I'm 23 and am attending college full time @ Columbus State, will be at Ohio State in fall. I’m in the Associative Arts program but I am an entrepreneur at heart...got about 100 things I want to patent and about 100 ideas that really could go somewhere....If only I could find some VC. Aaron where are you attending College? Im sort of sick of the AA program b/c it deals with people that want to get a degree and work for someone...and I want to get a degree and work for my self!...Some day I will...Im sure of that. Anyway I got about a thousand hobbies: working on my car, fishing,hiking,exercising, collecting old whiskey bottles, and taking an interest in almost anything I can, from astronomy to agriculture, there isn't much that I don't like, except for the L bracket that came with the solenoid kit...I don't like those a whole lot :lol: ..here is a pic of me with a nice Saugeye....sort of OT but I got it on my hard drive

I drive a 98 ETC, black, black, following BBobynski's careful instructions: like I stole it.

I'm a litigation type lawyer in Hollywood California, where I was born and grew up. I take from insurance companies and give to the poor. I'm *smurf*, single and free, and have a house in Acapulco where I go a week or so a month if I have time and money. I have a Pathfinder there - Cadillacs are too much of a target down there.

My father got a 64 Caddie De Ville to drive when I was a little kid, and I took it out at night when no one was watching and got hooked on Cadillacs. I've had Eldorados since 1986, starting with an '84, which was a terrible car but which I got SO cheap that even after spending a bunch of dough keeping it going, turned out to be a bargain. Then I got a 74 Convertible, painted it black, and later an '88 which was a great car, and now I have the 98. My other sin was a 67 Riviera GS, which my (then) squeeze miscalculated how much power it had (365 bhp) and ran it into a cliff and totalled it. He's gone.

I travel alot, best being a trip down the Amazon River in Peru for a week, which was astounding, and just love to go out on Sunday mornings and tool around Los Angeles and listen to "Motorman" Leon Kaplan on talk radio telling peeps about the funny noises and things about their cars. I took my Riviera to him twice, and both times it was a disaster . . . he's good at talking about fixin cars, but his shop sucks, imho.

My next car is an XLR - if I can stop spending all my money on airplane tickets . . .

The pic is me on the beach in Acapulco

Guess I'll join in, I'm in highschool (homeschool) and don't have a job at the moment (parents want me to wait). My dad owns the caddy and I drive a 1960 Buick LeSabre custom(in signature). I'm wanting to start my own classic car dealership but that'll probably be later down the road. As far as sports go I play paintball. Here's the only picture I have of me, I'm standing on the top of the bridge(hurricane)436_1024.ts1073275188000.jpg

acklac7,

That's a nice walley you're sporting there. Which reminds me that the season opens here 1st Saturday in May. There seems to be a water theme in the latest pics. Although it doesn't seem BuickLeSabre1960's theme was voluntary. ;)
