Here in Jackson, next to impossible. That's basically what I am. We only have 6 here. In memphis it would be easier. You just have to have a few years of truck repair or auto repair to be hired as a apprentice. They only hire through the cn website, so check it regularly. www.cn.ca
disclaimer......... I've been a mechanic for railroads for 14 years now, I do not recommend it.
You will never have a "regular" schedule again. In the 14 years I've never
worked a day job....
Barry here, I'm in Terry MS, just south of Jackson. Self employed one man body shop, (where my 66 slick resides) I also refinish tubs, yes, tubs and countertops. Collect vintage advertising, coke machines and gas pumps. See my rides below. Let's get this thing rolling!
David here. Also a Brandonian, life long. When I work, it is as a electromechanical service tech & I've spent most of working life running up and down the back roads & interstates of Ms and the southeast. I hit the big 5-ohhhmygodddyerrrTTHAAATTooold! next month, but feel much younger. Love my Fords & bleed Ford Blue. Spend most of my time working for myself & restoring/remodling/wiring/plumbing/gardening...etc, the home that I grew up in that my beautiful wife & I now live in. When time & budget allow I tinker & maintain our "fleet":
Truck in sig
02Taurus (for sale, 23k miles)

69-71 Triumph GT-6 Mks I-III (Basket case, rusting away in chicken house )

Good to have a Ms chapter.

No mods to anything, just regular maint, hard to kill these Fords.
David here, I work as a manager at a clothing store here in Batesville. I haven't had much time to cruise the boards here lately due to the wife and I just having a baby, it's good to see that MS. is finally represented here. I'm a transplant from Oklahoma and I've been here in MS. almost 5 years now. Look below to see what I drive.
Hey! I'm glad to see a MS chapter, pretty cool, My name is Joe, I live in Madison, just moved here from Jackson, and yes the 65 slick (f100 styleside) was pressed into service during the move.
I work as a freelance designer/animator mostly for broadcast clients. My next project on the 65 is to have the hood dipped and e-coated before cancer eats it up. Expensive process, but hoods are tough to come by. I want this truck to hang around for alot of years, so there goes all my spare change....
