    Beyond losing a friend, I am most saddened that I did not get to thank Steve for all he did for me. I was able to compete in numerous events, because he burned the midnight oil getting my engines ready. He knew that I always wanted to have a back up engine and would even make sure that I had the "second bullet" if necessary. He also understood that I preferred to finish as many heats as possible, rather than being the absolute fastest. So, he would set up my engines "middle of the road".

    I am still saddened, but looking back on so many great times brings a big smile!

    David are you still in Austin? Joe and I talked a couple of days ago about getting together with you for lunch or something in memory of Steve. The Bad Eyed Cat or something like that that had a runabout hanging on the wall.

    Wayne,

    I am in Austin regularly. The bar is the Mean Eyed Cat, which is a shrine to Johnny Cash. I would love to see you and Joe. Bruce is not that far away either. And, perhaps we could prevail on Denny to drive down from Dallas and perhaps Sean from Mabank.

    Let us make it happen soon!

    Let's do it. Start working on some time tables when you will be there.

    Default Special Paint Schemes

    The Gessler and Thirlby Automotive race teams have donned special paint schemes this year to honor Ed Thirlby Sr and Rick Saver who recently passed away. Derrick Gessler has named his runabout the Saver Special in honor of Rick and Andrew Thirlby's runabout will have the paint scheme used by grandpa Ed Sr in his racing days. A fine tribute !!!
