Bret Powell; A Big Thanks for Dinner Tonight !

Hey Guys,

The Deacon is in town for a little visit. After a full day of flow testing various heads (including Jon's P-51) and manifolds,,, and then also of dyno testing a C-460 headed engine,,,eight of us happy campers went to our favorite Texas Roadhouse for some prime rib and steaks. Bret was very kind and picked up the tab for all of us. We'd like to thank him for that! He's a cool dude! 8) Now then, after two years of me bashing him about owing me a steak, I'm not going to have anything to get any mileage of! :roll:

Did I mention that we were happy? Why were we all happy? :?: Because we had some really big torgue and horsepower numbers on the tight DTS dyno! :shock:

Later,
Charlie

It's always interesting to put a face with a person your familiar with from a forum like this, I'd never seen a pic of Brett before. I have seen several pics of Charlie, maybe it's just me, but Charlie reminds me of the late (and great) Dick Landy.

That's great Charlie, how big of a steak did YOU order on Bret's tab? 32oz like Wes Littrell?

Charlie, thanks for the large time! As always, I appreciate the hospitality I always receive when I go down to Kentucky. Charlie is always on the move for showing you around.

Thanks, It was my pleasure! Bret

Hey Y'all,

You don't know how much respect I have for those two excellent head porters standing on each side of me. It's good when we can learn things by sharing test results and collaborating on head porting projects. It's called teamwork!

As far as showing Bret around, I'm just the chauffer. Lem is the entertainment committee of one, with his famous one liner witticisms. However, he's very insightful, and with Lem and Phillip in charge of the tune-up on the C-headed unit that was on the dyno, every move was a step upward and forward and we were able to finish testing early enough to go eat supper and then hit Bret with the tab!

Later,

Charlie Evans
