Default GOT A NEW JOB!!

Went in to interview at BST(Building Systems Transportation), left with a date to come back for orientation and training!

I'll be driving a semi/flatbed combo, mostly hauling steel. My range will be the all 48, but probably concentrated in the Mid-West and Eastern States.
I even get my own assigned truck, so I don't have to put up with anybody else'* mess. I'll be teaming with a trainer for the first few weeks, and then I get my truck, and start getting paid 26% of gross (Translates out to roughly 3x anything I've ever made before!).
I'm already thinking about whether I'm going to buy that Camaro RS I've been wanting to build(L67 swap, the works), or concentrate on getting the Buick rigged out with the system I want.

Anyway, I go in for orientation/drug-testing on the 10th, and should be able to start training by the 17th!

Like I said, may be looking at a second car for summer/track. If I do get one it'll be a Camaro RS with the Series 2.(Think about a RWD 3800 that would finally be able to handle all the hp that an L67-swap can be persuaded to put out!)

Congrats buddy... I'm surprised no one else thought of it. You'll be driving a nice BIG truck all over the 48...hmmmm how soon before you take off do you know where and when?

Large parts delivery!!!!!!!!!! If we slip you a few beers...a steak dinner or two...or even a real bed instead of the truck.... I see possibilities.

They have, I've seen lots of people talking about doing it(the L67 swap) but so far haven't seen any results.

Not very. Maybe a day before the trip.

Only if I can stash it inside the cab. Companies are real strict about that.
(Now if you can make that a bottle of Bushmill'* 1608, some good blackened catfish, or a real bed with someone friendly in it j/k we might be in business!)
