Vic Edelbrock, owner of Edelbrock Performance Parts, had a constant line of 20 people waiting to get his autograph on a poster commemorating the company’s 75th anniversary.
“Fortunately, people like me and they like our product and I’ve been around a long time,” the 76-year-old hot rodder said. “As long as you put a smile on somebody’s face, that’s what it’s all about. It goes back to my father.”
Vic Edelbrock Sr. introduced the slingshot manifold in 1938 and bought his first shop in Hollywood, Calif., in 1945. The company makes carburetors, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, superchargers and other high-performance parts.
