Sad news, Vic Jr. took the company to new heights.
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

RIP Jr.   Hope whoever takes over for him keeps the Edelbrock standards and doesn't change much.  Its a great company.

Godspeed Vic. I expect the business will be in good hands, I'm sure his daughters will run it, they have been around it all their lives as Vic Jr. was.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
