Ok, So for my last co-op, I had the best job in the world.  I was a "road warrior" for Car & Driver Magazine.  The only reason I got the job was because of my skill as an engineer and I offered to work for free. (I did end up getting paid when one of the other road warriors left)

With this job, I got to drive all the new cars and trucks and go to Chrysler's Proving Grounds to help test the vehicles.  And I actually got to use the long-term test cars to go on trips to put miles on them.  This was right after I proposed to Jacqui and she moved to Ann Arbor with me after she graduated(she was a 4-year program)  So we got to make many trips using the cars from C&D to do our wedding planning in Louisville, go visit her grandma in Doylestown, PA, and tour all the way around Michigan.  I would've loved to go back to this job but there was no guarantee that I would move into a higher paying position anytime soon and Jacqui and I were getting married soon so I'd have to be the primary breadwinner.
