Besides our "handles" we also usually sign at least our first (real) name, too.

Jessie, right?

wOOt!

Ummmm....NO. JESSE! Last time I checked, I'm not a girl (although I sit down to pee sometimes, lol! J/K!)

Ok........here it goes! I'm gonna put it all out there so don't get pissed.

Well....for those of you that don't know, I'm currently employed by the California Highway Patrol and working out of the West Valley Office (Woodland Hills). I'm a car fanatic and can/will fix anything out there. I lived in Sacramento prior to my graduation from the Academy in December and I plan on transfering to Santa Cruz come April.

I own about 5 vehicles, but only have one down here in L.A., a 2005 Honda S2000. My dad and I acquired several vehicles over the 10 years I've been working on cars and I gradually fixed them up to what they are today. The majority of them are stock, but have rebuilt engines/transmissions and are in great and reliable shape.

I'm currently engaged to a gorgeous girl I've been dating for 5 years and I asked her the day I graduated. We are getting married on September 20th(I know...don't do it, haha).

I'm pretty easy going and very friendly, I love Ravioli and the color yellow, and I enjoy long walks on the beach.....with my dog Duke.

Here are some pictures of the beasts......

05 S2 (cutout equipped)


Land Shark w/step dads 97 LSC




My 88 Notch (sold)



Duke on the ski


89 Hatch parts car w/my own lambo bracket, lol, just messing around




79 Advantage 17' 350 w/Berkley Jet




67 Chevy w/350 swap (work truck)



78 Bronco w/400 2 barrel



89 240 Notch (future 5.0 swap project)


Dads 90 240 Hatch


Dads 91 Nissan P/U (currently has 06 Escalade rims on it, hehe)


Here are some links of the kinda stuff I get into at work...

Worked a Special Detail today for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation..... - Lincolns of Distinction Discussion Forum

Hey Jesse! Welcome to the fray that is the So Cal/Hawaii Chapster.

Usually we have to pry info outta guys!!

Anyway, hopefully we'll see you at a GTG soon and I can help you out by taking that worn out old Bronco off of your hands. It sure seems to be taking up a lot of room in your yard and I would not want your BTB to get upset. I'm here to assist!

What do you do for the CHiPs, if I may ask?

You're some kind of a gear-head! The land shark looks awesome - cutouts? I love it.

Thanks for putting up the pics -

Aww thanks guys. Good luck getting the Bronco away from my dad. We have one of each type of car, work truck, 4 x 4, gas saver truck, gas saver cars, little work truck, and a boat....what more could you need? LOL.

I'm just an Officer right now, n00b.....just started Dec. 21st. I do have Street Racing/BAR Emission and Illegal Engine Mod Certifications though, so I can get down on some import fever, haha.

I forgot the best picture, lmao!

There's been some server issues for the last day or two from what I understand. Also, this is a huge site. There's 1350 people on line right now, and almost 500k registered users.

It's usually a lot quicker than it is right now.

Sorry about the spelling, Jess. That's a mistake I can fix!

Now I see why you so quickly whipped out the camera at our last G2G. You ALWAYS have it at the ready! You catch some neat photos in your line of work. That little Mazda sure looked sorry after Summer's guy got done bringing it back up to the roadway.

It must also be nice to be able to out-gearhead the riceboys, too. With your background, those certifications must have come easy to you. Given what you know, the state got a good deal hiring you.

Welcome in. Thanks for keeping our highways safe. I'm always glad to see you guys on the road. I'm the one in the old truck and camper that nobody wants to get stuck behind.
