Default ATTENDEES; First Anual Mid-West volvo extravaganza

I thought it would be cool to start an attendee list and introduce ourselves. Copy and paste this but feel free to give as much or as little info as you want to.

Please only post once though. If you need to comment do it on the other thread.

Sex: M
Location: St. Louis, MO
Employment: Mortgage Banker summer intern
Education: Missouri University of Science and Technology for Engineers
Vehicle skill level (10 scale): 3
Car Model: Volvo 850 Turbo
Mileage: 140,000
Cosmetic Mods: Orange paint, black rims, blacked out grill, blue LED dash lights, subwoofer system, EVOLVE decals, stained bumpers, foglights, aftermarket Alpine head-unit, new roof lining (black), painted exterior trim (black)

A little extra about myself: Obviously for the last couple years I have focused on cosmetically enhancing the car and have just recently started studying up on engine management so I can increase performance. Cars are the reason I am studying to become a mechanical engineer.
