I live in Gastonia N.C. and have been a truck driver for almost 32 years now. I drive for a local company and run 6 states in the southeast. I have been modeling for about 40 years but had to take a hiatus for several years and when I started back to building recently I didn't realize how much the industry had changed! I build cars from the 1920's through the 1950's and heavy commercial. I just recently purchased a new airbrush and am still trying to figure out how to work it. I will probably be relying on this website for a lot of answers to my problems! Everybody take care and happy modeling!!!!!

Thanks brian and roadhawg, I still use the rattle cans for the most part but am trying to ease into the airbrush as I go! roadhawg, I drive for Conitex Sonoco but have been out of work for about 6 weeks now because of a ruptured disc in my back! I normally run Va., Tn., N.C.,S.C., Ga., and Al. when i am working. Let me know who you drive for also? Again, thanks for the tips!!

Roadhawg, if you drive for cardinal then you really are right close to me. I just live a couple hundred feet off I-85 about a mile before you get to exit 14.when the leaves are off the trees you can see my house from the interstate and my white International conventional is setting in front of my house. Take a look next time you are in this area, it's probably around the 15 1/2 or 15 mile marker on the right if you are southbound. Take care and be careful, I hope to be back out there soon! See Ya'

Welcome from another truck driver. I have had my CDL since '86 so I am still a young pup.
