Vic Edelbrock / Torrance, CA
It's good to be Vic Edelbrock Jr. If you're into performance, then his name is sufficient introduction and synonymous with the kind of high-performance cars we all lust after. But a behind-the-curtain scene we thought you might want to see is the lineup in this guy's garage. The Edelbrock shop houses most of the outrageous machines that Vic and daughters Camee and Christi drive at numerous vintage track events throughout the season. The vehicle count continues to expand, and while a handful of the collection has moved into a small museum in a nearby Edelbrock warehouse, our photo shows the toy barn where the work gets done. Cars that usually occupy a place of honor in this lineup but were missing on photo day include the notorious Smokey Yunick '68 SCCA Trans-Am Camaro built to take on the Penske-Donohue blitzkrieg, along with Vic's '59 aluminum-bodied Lister racer that was away at the body shop. On the opposite side of the shop is the Edelbrock 18-wheeler transporter that hauls the cars to the track. Shop supervisor Mike Eddy makes sure all these machines scream.
