Please help. What are some high paying automotive jobs?

im 17, im about to graduate high school, and im considering going to lincoln tech. i like cars, but i dont know if i want to repair them for the rest of my life. i want to know what type of other jobs i can get where i dont have to repair them all day. something where i can use my automotive knowledge, but maybe work in an office and make good pay. i really dont want to go to college because its too much like high school, and i cant stand all those different classes learning about stuff ill never need to use in my life. i do better with things i want to learn, which is why i picked lincoln tech, but i dont wanna go into a field where i cant get a job that i like. if anyone could tell me what some good jobs are and how much they pay, it would make my decision alot easier. im also good with computers and i can draw, so if there is a job where i can combine automotive knowledge, computer knowledge, and artistic skill please let me know. thanks for your help, i really appreciate it.
