I was born in the suburbs of Pittsburgh Pa. Lived alot of place while in the Navy for 6 years. (Aviation Hydraulics) Moved to Memphis Tn. in 1979. House is on the market in Memphis and has been for over a year now. Family is already in the new house in Seven Springs Pa. Near her mother, while the real estate and I try to sell this house. Have dropped the price down over 25K and still stuck with it.. They say the Market is picking up here so maybe it will sell by spring and I'll go back to Seven Springs Pa. with my wife and son. They came down to Memphis for Christmas and my son got to see his 65 Corsa Convertible for the first time. I bought it for him as a first car.. Now he has a problem. My wife said she wants to drive it too. She didn't realize it was in such good shape, she thought it was a fixer upper. I told her to fight her own battles with my son.. I gave the car to him.. He loves it so we have someone else to keep these Corvairs going.

I was born and raised in Northern Maine, Millinocket. After high school, I went to school in Laramie Wyoming. Very beautiful part of the country. :) After Wyo Tech, I ended up moving back home for a year as I could not find a job in autobody in southern Maine. After almost a year, I found a job where I wanted. I lived in Windham Maine for about a year, than moved to Gray for two years. I got married and bought a house in Cornish Maine. I worked at the same body shop for over 7 years before we had our first son. After living there for about 9 years, we bought our current house in Gorham Maine, just outside of Portland. We put the Cornish house up for sale and bought our current house at the same time as the housing market was at its peek. If we only knew. About one month after doing this, the market crashed. We sat on the Cornish house for 2 years. 2 years of paying to heat, taxes, mortgage, not to mention having to trailer the riding mower over to mow, and the snowblower in clear out the driveway. We have been here for over 3 years now and abosolutley love it. Dead-end street, just over 6 acres and great neighbors who look over each other.

I was born and raised in Anderson , Indiana . When I was 19 I moved to the south side of town to be closer to work. I worked mostly in sheet metal fabrication and machine maintenance . I had a short stint in building drag cars for Spitzer Racing and doing some work for a crash test facility. In 2000 I moved next door to my parents were I grew up and in 2006 I started working for myself full time restoring car and such.

Currently live in Pike Co., IL., the self proclaimed deer hunting capital of apparently the world. (Can't really tell much about it, most of my hunting is done with my car or truck.)
My wife and I have lived here on the family farm for 36 years and don't have any plans to live anywhere else.
I finally built a shop 6 years ago and now can't imagine doing without it. It's the center for a lot of automotive projects, ie. corvair, son's demo cars, nephew's jeep body work, S10 V8 project, S10 body work (not the same vehicle) and various honeydo projects.
Hopefully the Vair will be finished (except for wheels) in 2 or 3 weeks, finishing up the interior now, soundproofiing, carpet and seats. Still need to get the console skinned and radio mounted so mabe an additional week. At any rate, before spring driving season arrives.

Born and raised in Covina California. Lived in Covina from 1961 until 2002. Then moved to San Dimas California (right next door) until 2006. Then moved to Durango Colorado. Cold in winter, beautiful year round. We will become "snowbirds" when our youngest is out of school in 6 years. We will be in Durango 6 months and in Fountain Hills, Arizona 6 months. Hoping to retire at that time but not sure I can stomach the thought.

I remember lots of body surfing at Zuma and Santa Monica beach.

We would hitchhike or take the bus through Hollywood.

I remember one February day a guy from Chicago picked us up.

He was dumbfounded that we were going to the beach in the winter.

The bus ride through Hollywood was always great.

Back then they were freaks...now it's normal...sad really.

Plainfield IL, south west Chicago burbs. Been in the burbs since born in '76. Originaly Batavia till middle school, then West Chicago till my mid 20's (a suburb not the city), then Aurora (yes same town Wayne and Garth were from) for a few years where my now wife and I purchased our first condo, stayed for a few years till we bought a house in Romeoville where we stayed for three years then sold for a nice profit and moved to our current house in Plainfield. Many people know Plainfield for the F5 tornado that devastated the town in 1990 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plainfield_Tornado ) The only F5 tornado ever in the Chicago area per wikipedia. I still remember seing the destruction 2 days after it occured, wont ever forget, have yet to see anything to that extent in person. Reminded me of a battlefield.
