Default Report on the party

Lots of fun for Isky's 92nd Birthday party. Along with Ed - "Big Mac" MC'd & we surprised him with the Dave McClelland tower. Fritz Voigt, Paul Pffaf & Arlen Kurtis were recognized. Arlen drove up one of his original Cad powered Kurtis roadsters (500M) that has been completely restored & won the Concours d'Excellance. We had great stories from every one on the old days from Drag Racing to Indy to Boat Drags (Arlen's specialty (Kurtis Craft) & sponsor of Eddie Hill) to Sprint Cars & Midgets as well as stories about characters in racing. Fritz was the main guy for Mickey Thompson. Special car show judge Ed "Ace" McCulloch picked a 1947 Mercury coupe belonging to Glen Adkins as the car he would want to drive around in. The competition cars sounded good & impressed with their noise. Lots of nice trophies made from what else - Isky Cams & Arias Pistons (Nick was still not back from Bonneville so we missed him). Shakedown Dave came up on his "Ironhead" and hung out. Wish him the best on his pending heart surgery. Will get with Willy on the best way to download pictures.
