whats up guys well i see alot of people come here for advise and i figured ive talked to alot of other people so i might as well ask here too. I currently work for an engineering firm as a CAD operator basically i draw stuff on the computer all day. My love is in the automotive field though, i have always loved working on cars and making anything and everything custom or different in some way. I went to tech school for one year at a local high tech campus and it was ok, i knew more before i attended the school than what i learned, i have helped my dad build numerous cars from our 9 second drag car to our 10 second street car, i just want your guys opinion on attending some place like wyotech or something and then trying to get into a hot rod or custom shop, give me some ideas guys.
P.s. dont particularly like my job currently, engineers who are older can be a**holes

cliffnotes: dont like my current job wanna go to tech school to build custom sh*t

So, I'm not good enough for you anymore, huh? Is that it? I understand...


















:) j/p... I started VoTech in Wichita when I was in high school, but ended up not going to the high school part of the day... Had to drop out or get kicked out! Oh, well. I got my diploma and straightened out my life... Still like to work on cars/trucks and customize just about anything!
Good luck with the other posts, man!

Just a tip, though. When you turn something you love to do into a job, it sometimes doesn't turn out well. I didn't like working on cars for a living, I like doing it casually. Maybe doing custom work would be better, though. Sometimes it works out well!

can't have a hobby as a job.. i love photography, but i didn't pursue it as a career due to not wanting to ruin my hobby.
