We feel that we’re taking care of a school that wouldn’t be there if we hadn’t helped. It’s very rewarding, and we want to continue that. – Vic Edelbrock Jr.

Some things just make too much sense.

First, we have one of the biggest names in the performance automotive aftermarket. Then we sprinkle in a whole slew of hot rods and customs for your viewing pleasure. And finally, you get the most-compelling reason to be a part of it—it’s all to help kids.

The 7th Annual Rev’ved Up 4 Kids car show is back this weekend at Edelbrock in Torrance, CA. The festivities start Saturday, May 5 at 5 pm with the Legendary “Back to Where it all Began” party in Vic’s Garage, featuring face time with and storytelling from a group of aftermarket automotive legends, including: Vic Edelbrock, Ed Iskenderian, Gene Winfield, Alex Xydias, Parnelli Jones, George Follmer, George Barris, Sam Foose, Andy Brizio, Louie Senter, Ed Pink, Dave McClelland, Don Prieto, and Motor Trend radio host Alan Taylor.

We caught up with Edelbrock President and CEO Vic Edelbrock Jr. and his daughter Christi Edelbrock, the company’s vice president of business development, at Summit Racing’s headquarters in Tallmadge, OH on April 19.

It was instantly clear that the Edelbrock family takes enormous pride in this event. Every dollar generated from the Rev’ved Up 4 Kids show goes directly to the Torrance-based Center for Learning Unlimited—a school that specializes in providing educational, social, and emotional support to children with learning complexities related to conditions like Asperger’s Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, and more.

This school is helping prevent kids from falling though the educational cracks because of learning conditions beyond the control of these students and their parents.

It’s a mission that’s important to the Edelbrocks.

“We feel that we’re taking care of a school that wouldn’t be there if we hadn’t helped,” Vic Edelbrock said. “It’s very rewarding, and we want to continue that.”

Christi Edelbrock said the charity car show has generated more than $500,000 for The Center for Learning Unlimited over the previous six years.

“We want to bring all of our people together in the south bay part of LA and put on a Class-A show,” Vic Edelbrock said. “It’s just great to be in a position where we can put this together and have a lot of fun.”
