    A real diverse collection of jobs here. Very cool! I only saw a few that worked in dealerships as mechanics as I did. Like one guy mentioned "its hard to get enthused to working on your car after turning wrenches all day". It wasn't until the end of my 40+ yrs (after cancer) that I slowed down & started to enjoy cars again. Retired now & dont mind working 8 hours out in my garage.
