    10 months and still no job. Spoke to a real estate agent this week about selling my house and getting a cheap place (trailer and land) and selling my house of 20 years. Running out of money and like to eat and have electricity.

    Car has 69,000 miles and was bought 3 years ago from Corvette World in Texas. Garage kept and well maintained down to the new wiper blades. Everything works but the CD player. Have a new NAV+ camera head unit that goes with the car from Crutchfield that is pre wired. Factory Z51, 3LT option. Headlight recall done. No issues with balancer (has been inspected every oil change). Clean , clear GA title in hand, insurance through Hagerty. NO Modification other than the stripes, which can be peeled off. Stock and factory down to the filters and battery.

    $20,000.

    Michael.

    Car is also on Ebay.

    I did 22 years with General Dynamics working with Gulfstream business jets. Research and Development, Risk Reduction, hardware / software testing development and integration testing. Have 4 degrees (Embry-Riddle, ect) and an FAA A&P.
    Parents are in their 70s so I need to stay in my area. Was hoping to work at Flight Safety or Roll-Royce locally but they have not been hiring.
    All of the "jobs" here are under $15.00 /hour and have no benefits, so Ive just stayed home. But its been almost a year and I like food and electricity. :)

    Engineers in Houston are starting consulting businesses... then w downturn qualify for stimulus.

    my mind also goes to some form of online technical work or writing training opps for your field.

    I commend your service to your folks.

    thinks will turn around.

    glws and your ventures

    Dunno. :( its a well sorted car.
    Most of these are high miles and modded to hell and back.

    The stripes will come off, otherwise the car is all original and well maintained. Going to get an oil change soon and they will do an inspection.
    The chrome on my factory wheels is flaky, but factory oem wheels in great shape can be found for sale cheap since folks track and mod these so much.
    Tires and maintenance parts for these are cars these cars are cheap. -a set of 4 tires on Tire Rack (Kuhmo) are $610 for 4 !

    Car is on here, CraigsList and I need to put it back up on facebook marketplace.

    FAA A&P, no airfield near you? A&Ps are weeks or months back scheduled around here.

    Someone near you must need an annual signed off.

    Annuals require a IA rating not just an A&P to return to service. Most airports require AOA / SIDA badges and millions in liability insurance to be on the ramps with live aircraft.
    I took the IA exam years ago as it was a real ordeal just to get signed off and get permission to take the test.

    Failed the test by a few points and honestly never needed an FCC or an IA at General Dynamics where I was.

    -Good idea though, thank you.

    see FAA below. :)

    Around here A&P will do work for less than the IA. Then the IA just signs off on work you did.
