It was originally founded in 1963 by Vic Edelbrock, Jr., Ed Iskenderian, Al Segal, Roy Richter, Willie Garner, John Bartlett, Bob Hedman, Dean Moon, and Phil Weiand, Jr. These gentlemen have create a sizable niche in the global economy for the millions of gearheads that have fun with sport compact cars, muscle cars, classic cars, street cars, hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, and recreational vehicles.
