    Oh. So it that company a big company that has lots of stores or something? In that case, then I understand how six could relate.
    Edit: Six answered my question. Thanks

    The dealership I work in is part of NY auto giant, which has over 25 dealerships under its umbrella, so job security is very good, and salary (besides commission and bonuses) is competitive. I was out of work for 9 months last year (2013) and when I got this job, I was like "im def not losing this job" If I don't like it here then I can basically pop over to another location and start from there...my dealership is so close to my house, like 8 mins away, its almost stupid NOT to work here. Business is good here, everyone in NY loves their big Tahoes and Suburbans, fully loaded of course lol

    What. How is that supposed to work. Or do you mean your unemployed? If so, then I guess that's an interesting way to say it.

    I'm a metrologist at a leading Canadian calibration laboratory focused on providing calibration solutions to aerospace, automotive and other industries. We are located in Montreal, Quebec. Mi expertise is in Pressure Calibration. For all of you, Metrology is the science of weights and measures or of measurement, a system of weights and measures. And what attracted me to this game is its soft body physics and realism. No other game behaves like it! Kudos to the developers! :)

    lol Yes I suppose so, I am out of the workforce for a long time due to my back. Doc said I need to find a easy desk job or I will be in a wheel chair by the time I am 30. So until further notice I am CEO of my couch. Was working as a dry breakdown stacker at a lumber mill at the time of my first back injury. Sure do miss working.

    BeamNG as a full-time job.

    I occasionally work as a temp, laying fibre optics into the ground so old people can enjoy ultra fast broadband.

    Right now, looking after my mother because she had a major surgery, and she's not allowed to drive.. Which means her car is all mine..;)

    O wow, that's a pretty sweet car. Always loved the falcons since GT3 when they had the Falcon XR8 race car, why the hell cant we have big V8 RWDs here!!!! (we get the Holden XF here, but only with the 6.2L and loaded loaded loaded as a Chevy SS.) That's the closest we can get to having one of those perfect cars. I love those Falcon utes and shit tho, although Im not sure if NZ has those as much as AU does.

    I drove 5 ton for a couple years up until somewhat recently, now I'm delivering auto parts until I find another driving job, thankfully I work at highest paying parts distributor though, but it's still a measly $12.50 an hr. Made $18 driving the 5 ton.

    hmmm, interesting, the new ones don't look very falcony if you ask me, more taurus, or focusy, to me, a ford falcon is this(except in red or black, instead of purple):

    1973_Ford_Falcon_XB_GT_Coupe_Blue_(1).jpg

    it has more of a falcony look, but, that's just my opinion, I'm 100% sure other's have there own opinion

    Start working railway maintenance in March. Worked for the highway department (county worker) doing road maintenance before this. Also, the occasional odd job helping out a farmer or my uncle (also a farmer) But the latter I generally don't get paid for
