I liked your joke just fine but I actually got a better laugh out of the idea that Donald didn't know what a hub cap is. I'm not knocking Donald, I'm just recognizing how old I am. I not only know what they are, all my cars still have them.
Yeah, there's a whole different world out there when you don't work in the luxury service industry. Of course, there are other ways to be poor and happy. My newest auto is 18 years old... but it IS a car, not a "pushbike". ( I feel so superior right now. It's not a sensation I'm use to having.)
Yes, I should have guessed....the car park at a luthiers convention always reminds me of the "rent -a wreck" car hire business we used to use in Hi-why.......Of course, we always park our BMWs and 911's out back in case the clients think we are overcharging.
And here I always thought you parked them out back because they didn't come with options like engines, transmissions, interiors.... I can see that I have a lot more to learn before I could even consider doing this for a living.
Ummm, I'm a little frightened by this thread to be honest. I'm getting into guitar repair for the primary purpose of making a steady living for once. I'm an artist and musician, and even hold a masters degree in art - lofty topic for parties, until they see your car. I love working on guitars and I've really got a knack for it, but man o' man fella's ....is it really that bad for the cash flow?
