    jeez lol. cali aint THAT bad :D the only things they care to steal here are stock camry's, accords, and shit like that. they just want stuff that they can part out and re-sell quickly. #1 stolen vehicle is a stock 1990 camry. theres no need to steal import engines, the ones people want are usually in junkyards...not in new cars. no ones gonna make a living stealing old B16's :lol:

    here's my 2 cents.

    if they offered you a pretty goof position why not take it. just work there for a little while and try to get a job somewhere else. there's plenty of shops out here in Cali. i'm sure if you know what you're doing it shouldn't be too hard to get a descent job.

    Yea.. I dont.. i have friends all over cali.. i have lived in cali, i read honda-tech. Imports are stolen almost everywhere, including the uppper suburbs. Come out here.. not 1 "fixed up" (riced or tuner) Honda/import period has been stolen in this town. Yea, we only have 33k ppl, but that doesn't mean shit.

    You can't trust a sole in cali, there are teams up in chino that steal shit, friends steal their owns friends shit, to use or sell. Fuck that. Its not worth it. Go believing its not bad there and when you least expect it, your shit will be gone and you will be thinking.. "how did that happen, i live in upper class area" (or whereever in cali you live).

    whatever you do stay out of riverside, or most parts of it.....

    from the places i have been over there.....its like a friggin cow-town. place smells like cow shit and the people
    are white trash. of course, im sure there are some nicer areas....but its fucking inland....

    torrance, redondo beach are two nice areas to live in Cali once you get up and running....

    shit..why not just take a plane out there and check it out. i know it would cost $$$ but it would be cheaper than moving out there and finding out how bad it sucks...IF it does suck. and also you could check out that shop while you are there to see what they do. just a thought...

    chico can be cool if drinking and frat parties are your thing....
    chico can be a wild and crazy town... 4 days a year chico goes nuts, Labor day Memorial day, St. Patty's day and halloween...
    chico is fairly close to a dope race track... Thunder Hill, I know a lot of people who are non-ricers who live in chico and are way into the race scene...
    Chico also has the party school of california, chico state. It is also a nice mountain town...
    if i were you i would go there and check it out. there is a motor importer there and the guys there are way nice, risingsunengines.com
    good luck man...

    well i had planned on taking a plane out there and checking out out personally, but then everybody started telling me how ghetto it was and blah blah blah, plus i figure the fact that they were offering me 20-25 bucks an hour plus half of labor is kinda BS, that's upwards of 50k a year... maybe it's because i live in kansas that makes me not believe that, but that seems like a lot of cash. i dunno... i'm not sure what im gonna do.

    chico ghetto??? you have to be kidding me.... there is like one bad street, and the rest of it is way nice....
    if i were you i would check it out... 25 bucks an hour goes a long way up in chico... i will ask my buddy tomarrow what he thinks of the shop...
