Default What do you do for a living?

So I've been curious for a long time what kind of jobs everyone has. I see these incredible cars and wonder how everyone affords to mod their cars the way they do.

I'll start, I am a heavy equipment operator. I run a caterpillar d8t dozer for a coal storage yard. We ship coal overseas and stock pile coal from several mines.

No car in your profile, no mention of your car. So what exactly do you drive mr heavy equipment operator? And there's a thread just like this in the Member's Car Gallery.

But I live at home. I'm a fulltime student studying Finance. I have a crappy part-time job that I hate and it requires zero sort of qualifications. I probably make around $25k a year.

Your crappy part time job is making almost as much as my crappy full time job at 32k dealing cards and craps at the casino.

I did the same for two years. Loved working on the equipment but the hours can be brutal. Did residential HVAC for another seven years. Now I'm union, back in the commercial field at a local hospital + surrounding campus, and lovin it.
