That kind of sucks.

I have one of their cams (a Crane Blazer for a FE block) sitting in my garage.

We're losing too many businesses.

Steve, I have the FE in the '55.
It has, however, an Edelbrock Performer kit in it (cam, intake, and carb).
It's an expensive basket case...........and so is my truck.

Perhaps someone who would like to have that particular Crane cam will pay you handsomely for it when it is no longer available.

That, and Holley too... I have heard whisperings that Edelbrock isn't sitting overly pretty either.

Holley?

Now that would be a real shocker.

That sucks. I remember Crane Cams back when I was a lad. Even bought valve springs from them for my <cough cough>, 73 Duster. That would also suck if Holley/Edelbrock went belly up.

So what happens when every business in America closes its doors? Do we all move to Canada?
