I was a paramedic for ten years in Charlotte, NC but got hurt on the job, had to have shoulder surgery and ended up having to come 'off the street'. Now I'm an asst supervisor in communications. The biggest thing I miss is driving through Charlotte rush hour, lights and siren blazing, running people off the road and jumping curbs!!! LOLOL

Lisa - you've got a GTO! The only thing that is missing from above is the siren!!!

Oh trust me Larry....I'm reliving my career! LOL The only problem is... I didn't have to worry about Mr. Po-lice man when I was working... I've got my 17yr old son's Mitsubishi GTZ on my insurance policy (OUCH) as well as hubby's F250, the GTO and a camper. So I definitely cannot afford a ticket!!

I'm a the Parts manager at a GMC, Pontiac, Buick, Subaru, Hyundai, and Daewoo dealership. Been a parts guy for almost 20 years now, and a car geek for life. Married and father of two boys. A 3 year old and a 2 month old.
Being a dad is cool.

I'm A Police Officer And I Agree With Lisa. Driving My Gto Is A Blast But Running Emergency Down A Busy Street Is A Totally Different Experience.

Brian, you are soooo right. It's indescribable; I guess because you're not worried about getting stopped. WOOHOO what a rush. Adrenaline junkie? You got that right! LOL

I retired in 2000 after 27 years in Corrections. Let me tell you first hand, retirement is not what I thought it would be. It's about 10 times better! Last of 5 boys still at home, he turns 16 tomorrow and has his appointment set for 10am at the DMV. Wife retired from same place I did so we are just doing what ever our little hearts desire. I considered getting rid of my Volvo S60 AWD turbo and getting the new GTO but I like the AWD in the Alaska winters. I already have the 66 for fun and doubt I could talk the wife into both. I may try for the 06 when it comes. That would be kind of cool. Get rid of her Saturn, give her my Volvo, get brand new GTO. Yeah, that should work. Anyone got a couch I could sleep on?
