Auto Shop?...Anyone?

Hey guys this is just to show off my Auto shop class at my school(high school). The teacher has every tool you could imagine. We work on everything from standard vehicle maintenance to welding, cutting, pipe bending...etc. The best part is I can bring the truck in whenever I want to work on something or install something. I think it's the best class they offer at my school!




If you look close you can see some crazy ass kid ahah






Here's a new crashed car donated to us by another teacher

Neat. My base has a dope ass auto hobby shop, and it friggin rocks. Like 4 lift bays, oil change racks, and every tool imaginable.

It makes doing truck work mega easy, thats for sure.

Not in the service, but some buddies are and I hit up the Pope AFB hobby shop with one of 'em one time. Kickass setup. $10 an hour or whatever for a lift bay? Sign me up! Made it a hell of a lot easier to get stuff done. I wish more places rented shop time.

Really?? Man that sucks ass, I mean if I had one bad thing to say about the shop it would be the crappy engines. A bunch of dumb ass kids were stealing the parts off the engines, so we don't necessarily have any complete blocks, only the ones in the working cars ahaa

That's sweet! You can just drive up and work on your truck?

That is awesome and I had thought starting a shop where people could rent a lift I know it would be a huge success

That's the one thing I worry about and why I only bring the truck in after school. Did kids ever mess with it or anything like that?

Didn't have one available.

At home we did have a muddy yard and gravel drivway, with a well placed tree for pulling engines though. Good times.
