    We had a TACO party for Isky on Sat. There was cake!!
    A story told by Ed was that the first cam He ever ground was a mistake, it was soooo noisy, you could here it coming from a block away. So after, he was getting orders from NASCAR drivers wanting a Calif. Cam (thats where all the fast stuff comes out of) Same cam design and it made the power where it needed to be, He asked about the noise, they said "they said that they didnt care about the noise"

    A belated Happy Birthday wish to Ed. This was at the Meltdown in 2015.
    On our way to the track we stopped at McDonald's. There was Ed, Bones,
    Ohio George and friends. I was freaking, my wife thought I was nuts, but
    I didn't dare bother them during down time. Fortunately, I got the chance
    to get this pic later at the track. Ed was (is) quite the gracious person. I wish
    I was photogenic, he insisted that I pose with him.

    Met Ed at our 2019 LAR show while his driver was giving him a grand tour of the LAR show. Too bad we had to cancel this years event, BUT we'll be back in 2021 strong as ever!----Maybe Ed can make it again.---Don
