I don't know how I managed to miss this but anyway:

Age:39
Current Occupation: Hazardous Waste management, wastwater treatment and environmental compliance
Side Work: Building construction on nights and weekends
Intended Career: I would like to retire early and start a business, involving VTwin motorcycles and/or graphics. Or possibly in construction, rehabbing houses
Hobbies: Motorcycles (wrenching and riding) Cars too, camping (the seasonal in a camper kind), cooking, carpentry, drawing/sign painting, taking apart and rebuilding almost anything, billiards, and skiing up until I wrecked my knee. Now I might go once a year.
Music: Modern, alternative and classic rock. NO COUNTRY WESTERN!
Realistic Dream car: I would like to someday build a Factory Five Shelby Cobra replica or get another 1970 or so Pontiac LeMans (or GTO) to replace the one I totalled a few years back.
Reason I bought a Toyota Truck: To be honest, I got my truck for nothing and it became a project that turned daily driver. I then sold my big Chevy truck when gas went through the roof and I wasn't using it for side work so much. I also have a 1988 Celica GT I got initially as a temporary car which then became a winter car and then my daughter's car. By then I was hooked and now my wife also has a Celica only hers is a 1995 GT Convertible. So basically I became a Toyota owner by mistake but now am a fan. I was absolutely sick of wrenching on my wife's Chrysler Sebring convertible so when it got wrecked, she became a fan too, with a little input from me.

I thought drinking and camping were pretty much the same thing. LOL

Nice. but although you can pick good ones up at a reasonable price the cost for me then is the shipping, inport duty, etc. then the cost of running a Mustang here in the UK with sky high road tax for large engined cars and stupid fuel costs. would be cheaper to emigrate to the US. Now theres a thought!!!

I think a Z06 is pretty reasonable for an airline pilot.

Point taken but in real terms are "realistic" and "dream" when describing something you want not at opposite ends of the scale to each other?? Re the 68 Mustang in reality yes I would love to own one, yes I could afford to buy one ship it over hear and run it. But it would be totally impractical as I would only want to use it when not at work and the weather was fine! but thats when the Gixxer comes out to play so I would be left with a dream car sat in the garage for most of the year costing money for not much pleasure! Then it would no longer be my "dream" car.
