Found this little bit of hot rodding history. As told by Ed Iskenderian.
I did not realize how far back can grinding went. And I guess I never new the right way to pronounce his name. Lol. Isky was a lot easier.Ed’s Da’Man!
I don't know about other guys but that would be my dream gal! Ya got a keeper for sure.When we were just dating,
(oh good heavens this goes back… almost sounds awful.)
She was 16, I was building my first engine, I asked for the piston and rod assembly to slide into the block, I reached over, grabbed the piston and rod, tugged on it, tugged again, I looked up and said, “Come on now, give it here, I’m ready for it.” Like she froze up or something. She said - “No, I’m installing it.”
I’ll just get to the end…..
I couldn’t pull it out of her hands, (King King / G.I. W/the Kung-Fu grip she has!
**** it! Install it! It better not **** up!
Fast forward to just a few years back, she, NOT I! Is setting up her own roller rocker arms on her Trick Flow heads for her own car on the kitchen table that she bought with her money.
Yep! Home run!

Thanks. The only draw back is when she starts eye balling your parts for her car. She got a bit upset and started in with women logic on my parts.I don't know about other guys but that would be my dream gal! Ya got a keeper for sure.
Just curious, where did you look the last name up?Easy for me! I went to school with an Iskendarian. I have no idea if there related.
Funny story….. The wife has seen Da’Man up top name before. It’s been brought up over the last 36 years here and there LOL!
Well she is a nurse and went in to call on a patient for the doctor, yep! Lo and behold, “Mrs. Iskendarian! The Doctor will see you now.”
She said the women lit up and smile saying, “How did you know how to say my name? No one gets it right.”
For fun one day, I searched the web for how many Iskendarians there are in the US. Answer - NOT very many at all!
May Ed live past 117!
