He started out as a Janitor type of a person, then worked his way up to a manager of something or other....he retired from there about 5 years ago then worked at Bay-veiw (a place that makes tabble-tops for prisons and such) then retired from there and worked at Goodwill as a manager but eventually quit there nd now he works at Educators Credit Union (bank).

I will say this though. It takes his van 1.1 more liters to pump out the same amount of HP that my pumps out. I just like pointing that out to people....
That is why I put the thingy... lots of people say that about Subies... my dad says it because of the spoiler on the back of the STi....
