Best,

There will be more slant six parts that show up at Lou’s by accident than the number of slant six parts at the entire Indy Cylinder Head Swap Meet, but we will “Endeavor to Persevere”.

Remember, there was an original pair of Hyper Pak exhaust manifolds last year.

Put in for the day off, it has been approved. :D

we all met up with Jim Cox, talked together for over an hour, went through the Who's Who of Slant Six Racing.

Jim C was not at Clay City last year, we spoke of the Racers Reunion and he believes he will be there in 2018.

He said he still has the car and motor(s), in pieces, said more than once that the Slant Six racing community is the best and he misses them.

Jim said he is still active in drag racing, drives an altered car, ,,,said he plans to drive it the Mopar - Racers Reunion at Clay City.

Dennis introduced us to Ryan Brutt. He is the one that finds lost automotive treasures in old barns - farmers fields etc. Super nice guy!

Wow, cool event, and great that you got to hang with Jim Cox. Jim is missed in the Slant 6 community and we hope to see him (and all of you!) at Clay City in Sept...

Banquet was a blast this weekend. Just saw off the last folks...

Lou

The sloppy joes were great as usual! Also ran into Danny Brewer (Brewers Performance) 4 speed expert. Have really gotten to know the Brewer family from Carlisle - good bunch!
