      On another note. I think it was really cool that Finnegan took the time to read and post here during the Power Tour. Unless, he got grounded and was left behind to mind the store.

      He was testing SBC cams last I saw and was not at the PT.

              Thats right. You dont like words with more than two syllables. Or, words you would have to look up meanings on google. Haha.

                I'm stubborn. I guess at my age I like to read a story without stopping, and losing my thoughts/enjoyment.............for words I feel I've gotten this far without. Don't cover lack of knowledge with intricate verbage. LOL

                      I think you are confusing truncated with priapism.

                          Scott -

                          Two tidbits from the dark reaches of the 'cave...

                          1. I've been on the 'hiring side' of the corporate beaurocrazy, and I can tell you, sometimes the folks doing the hiring just get so damn busy that the whole hiring process gets stalled... much like a 'project car'... and then it gets re-started, often with different people in the works... and the original 'interviewees' kinda get lost in the shuffle...

                          2. My Dad once hired a guy simply to make him shut up and leave him alone. He was THAT persistent. But that was the phone company, lol...
                          Yes, I'm a CarJunkie... How many times would YOU rebuild the same engine before getting a crate motor?

                              Scott,

                              I applied for the same job. Went through the same stuff. I am even currently writing for Hot Rod monthly (Auto Archaeology). And they passed, they hired my friend Diego from NY for the job. He's a great guy and deserves it. But still, they passed on me as well... and I'm already writing for the magazine.

                              2 years ago Hemmings flew me out and put me up for a few days... and they passed.

                              But I just keep working at it. I will work full time in car magazines.

                              Keep getting your name out there. I would recommend starting a blog or website with all this incredible content and knowledge you have. Make it hard for them to ignore your talent.

                                I read your stuff. Those discoveries are so much fun, like solving mysteries.

                                Looking forward to reading Diego's stuff.

                                I am not angry or bitter, just disappointed. Like you said, they know you and passed. DF knows me. But, he wasn't the guy hiring. He wouldn't be the boss. It was Michael Floyd. I finally realized what my desires are for a job. It took forever for me to do so. Now that I do know, I am very focused. Or, as focused as I can be while working 12 hrs a day. I wrote a product preview last night while sitting outside the premiere for "The Bling Ring". Only stopped long enough to watch Paris Hilton use my door mirror to check her lipstick.
