Vic was an industry leader and he paved the way for the speed equipment /performance industry to grow as large as it did. His legacy will live on.

I was lucky enough to be around and work with Vic in the past. He was a very nice guy.

I remember I was in the office and did not know he was in town for a visit.

I was walking out wearing my Edelbrock letterman jacket when I got about jerked off my feet by a hose collar. Thinking it was a co worker I turned fast only to confront Vic face to face. He smiles and said he loved the jacket.

I later worked with him on some cars shows and he was always accommodating. He even delayed his flight out to help hand out awards.

I also morn the loss of Pete Chapouris. He was a help last year when I needed to get colors and graphics for a So Cal belly tank tribute soap box derby car we were building.

We are losing many legends . I just read where Mario Andretti is 78 years old and AJ Foyt is 82. Hands to imagine.
