I was very sad to hear about that when it happened. A pioneer in many ways. RIP Vic.

Re: Vic Edelbrock Jr.

RIP. I don't think Edelbrock will be "Made in the USA" for much longer. The company is owned by private equity firm Industrial Opportunity Partners (IOP) since 2010. I bet Vic was a big reason they remained solely in California.
