I'm Steve. I live outside of Foxwoth, Ms. That's about halfway between McComb and Hattiesburg in South Ms. I work offshore on a floating production platform as a Ballast Control Operator. 57 years young and looking forward to retirement! I'm building a 1954 F-100 that was set back about 2 years due to Katrina. Hope to have it on the road by Cruisin the Coast 2009. I also have a 1959 Ford 801 tractor and my Wife drives a 1996 Ford Explorer. I have a 1950 C*%&$ that I take to local shows while I'm building the F-100 (yes it's got a Ford in it). Active in the Backwoods Cruizers car club.

I'm Daryl and I'm also from Hernando. ('bout 20 south of Memphis). I'm a designer for a giftwrap manufacturer in Memphis. I currently pour any excess funds in to a 1968 Ranger SWB, 390, C6. I have '67 too but it's not much more than lawn art at the moment.

pidaster 08-17-2008 07:22 PM

I'm Josh from Hattiesburg. I'm the manager of a car stereo shop. I've got a '77 F250 Custom that I don't do much with and a '74 F100 Ranger that I drive when I can't ride the motorcycle. I'm also about to start restoring a '73 F100 Custom that's been in my family since the 80's.

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.

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....

BarryMc 08-17-2008 08:30 PM

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!:eek: 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
92GT Mustang
02Taurus (for sale, 23k miles)
73 Mach I (Tape job only 302/c4, rusting away in my shop :mad:)
69-71 Triumph GT-6 Mks I-III (Basket case, rusting away in chicken house :rolleyes:)
87 Toyota Xtra cab (22RE blown all over shop next to Mach :-huh)

Looking forward to taking over a parking lot somewhere with yall some day.

On edit: I think I saved my 1K for a good'un. :)

Leroy here, live on the coast, Ocean Springs Ms. Retired USAF Electrician and now I work for Transocean Drilling offshore.
Been working on vehicles just about all my life. I have a new to me 01 Superduty 7.3, an 88 F-250 Lariat 7.3, and a 94 Bronco 5.0 OJ Simpson special (White with red interior). Everything has at least 100k miles and still going strong.

Where is Johns?
Good to have a Ms chapter.
I live in Johns MS. Currently have 3 Fords, 99 Expy, 2000 7700, 73 3000 tractor ( ol' smokey) . When I joined up we had a 97 Ranger and a 89 F150 in addition to the others. Gave the last 2 to the young'uns.
No mods to anything, just regular maint, hard to kill these Fords.

(really x 5 now)

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....
