We don’t know many car enthusiasts that do not have a good time at a car show. It’s a place where friends are made, and everyone can get a new idea to employ in their project. When it comes to car shows, if you’re on the West Coast, one that you really need to experience, happens in Torrance, California at Edelbrock’s facility. Since they just announced that their 12th Annual Car Show will be held on Saturday May 6, 2017, you can make plans now to attend.
But, this isn’t just a park-your-ride-in-the-grass-and-sit-behind-it event. On Friday May 5, they will be opening the doors of their corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility to give free shop tours. Participants will get the opportunity to take a guided tour of Edelbrock’s Research & Development, Manufacturing, and Quality Control departments. This is a unique opportunity for automotive enthusiasts to see what it takes to design and manufacture their hugely-popular performance products. Shop tours begin at 10:00 a.m. and will end at 1:00 p.m. There are limited spots available, and interested parties can register online by clicking here.
On Saturday, you’ll be able to partake in the view of more than 400 cars as they fill the streets around Vic’s Garage for the 12th annual event. Please accept this invite to come out and enjoy a day of hot rods, great food, and live entertainment.
The show will also host the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, where teams of high school students from the far reaches of Southern California compete in a challenge to tear down and rebuild an engine in a timed and judged competition. What’s more, there will be an area for the kids to cut loose.
We hear the ever-popular Kids Corner will be the place for youngsters to hang out with many activities for children of all ages. Edelbrock will also have many other aftermarket manufacturers in attendance to exhibit their products as well, so you are sure to find the parts you need. Make your plans now to attend the show, which will occur from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. By the way, spectator entry is free.
All vehicles, regardless of make or model are welcome and encouraged to attend, and interested car show participants can register online by clicking here. The standard registration fee of $35.00 per car is available from now until April 15th, and the day of show, registration will still be available at $40.00 per vehicle. If you belong to a car club, Edelbrock tells us that special arrangements can even be made to accommodate small and large car clubs.
