Well Hell C3, I've worked on many cars that are running! Some of them get worked on while driving too. Heck, back in the day I worked on race cars, including in the 24 Hours of Daytona where our entry sucked a valve only 6 hours into the race. We pulled it into the garage, swapped the cylinder head and piston/rod assembly with our spare engine (had to keep the same engine block that started the race per the rules) and got it out on the track and back into the race again in about 45 minutes. This was all done on a race-hot engine straight off the track.

The car made it through till about 06:00 when it lost the fuel pump belt and the team owner who was driving it at the time walked away from it before one of our drivers could get out there with the tools to put a new belt on and continue the race. The damned owner essentially quit on us. (Our team and 2 drivers were hired by the team owner for Daytona. We were more valuable to the car making it as far as it did than the team that came with the car was!). Oh, and I caught on fire while fueling the car in the pits too. That was fun (not).

Anyhow, I have yet to see a doctor perform open heart surgery on a runner participating in the Boston Marathon and getting that runner back out running on the course again.

Oh My God! The wonders of the internet! I just Googled it and the car I mentioned above is this one right here! http://www.racingsportscars.com/photo/1989/Daytona-1989-02-05-0002.jpg

That's a lot of working but it's also a lot of $$$$$.

Who watches Sue while you work?

Hey, Cane. Maybe after eating some prehistoric looking, weird, eight legged creature with suction cups on it's tentacles and some raw fish, maybe we can go swimming!

I think he goes to work too. He talks about it like it's their job not just Trip's job, it's pretty cute

Yep. He helps too, when he actually has to make rounds with me. I have a cool video I could post, but I don't know how! I don't want to put it on YouTube and link it.

He knows how to check the chlorine levels in the water, how to turn on transfer pumps and run them right without tearing them up. He can even point out a sewer lift station, tell you where the line comes from coming in, where it goes to going out, and give you directions to the next sewer lift station.

He's a little package of awesome. (no, he doesn't mess with sewer. I don't either, but it's pertinent information I need to know, so I taught him too.)

I taught my 3 yo girl how to properly load 22lr into the tube magazine

Had too , she kept putting them in backwards and that really screws things up !
Then she somehow managed to slip a 22short by me and into the marlin 60 , that really pissed it off lol

That's awesome. I like teaching my granddaughter lots of information, too.
