Now im one of those California Smog check Nazis.....
I have about 8 years as a GM tech, about 3 as Daimler Chrysler (yes, back then), too many years to count as a tech as a private shop, all my ASEs re-certified master since '93, I even went and got the new one, A9 for light diesels....

Spent 4 years turning wrenches, 8 years selling em. When the bk5500 (iirc) came out with misleading packaging, and that ct 1/4 ratchett came from China stamped Snappy, not BluePoint, I started to look elsewhere. Still the best tools on the planet, though.
And no, I don't miss the 80hr weeks, or the 55hr weeks turning wrenches. Now I just do it for fun (again).

Mechanic by profession?
I work for enterprise rental car at the Atlanta airport, as a maintenance tech. I was just curious to see who else on here works as a professional mechanic? I know most of us are at least backyard mechanics, just curious to see who does it for a living
