Default How many women here actually work on engines?

I am curious to know how many women are here that actually work on engines? I know that I am not the only one but it would be nice to have an idea. Last year I was at a large outdoor flea market and noticed a huge tent with tools. Naturally, I went to investigate to see what was on offer. I noticed only one other woman looking at the tools and I think she was with her hubby; she was with a man and did not really seemed interested in the tools. Don't get me wrong, a great sale on shoes will draw me in as quickly as a great sale on tools.

I started out by handing tools to Dad to make it easier for him. I quickly learned all the names and sizes of the tools. From there it was helping him work on the engines and transmissions. I also learned about fabricating tools as well from Dad. Mum was no stranger to working on cars either. Before the kids came along Mum helped Dad as well, helping to remove engines and transmissions and such.

LOL. Actually, I do like to cook, something I got from Mum. However, I don't care for hockey.
