Post Strych9's Build/Issues Journal

About me: I graduated from tech school in 1987 with an Associate's degree and began my career as a professional Ford/Lincoln/Mercury automotive technician. I became a Ford Senior Master Technician and have retained my ASE Master certification throughout my career changes. After repairing vehicles and running a side business of modding 5.0L Mustangs for 12 years, I moved into service and parts management. Today I run the wholesale and warranty divisions for a large automotive transmission remanufacturing company here in Omaha, NE. I am divorced and the parent of a wonderful 12 y/o son.

About my car: 2012 2SS/RS Transformers edition. I bought it new out of dealer stock, and it had 125 miles on the clock. Took her home 4/6/2012. Today I'm at 1400 miles.
