Ed Iskenderian – A true icon of the speed and performance industry that was established in Southern California after World War II. Born in the Central Valley of California, Ed’s family moved to the Los Angeles area pre War where Ed attended Polytechnic High School. It was during this time that Ed built his first Hot Rod and in the process became friends with the legendary Ed Winfield, considered to be the father of hot rodding. After his service in the War, Ed decided to go into the cam grinding business because the demand for cams could not be met by the existing manufacturers. By supplying quality well designed products for early racing legends and creative advertising, the “Isky” name became a hallmark. His products would go on to be used in hundreds if not thousands of record setting runs throughout all forms of motorsport. Ed was also one of the founders of the now well‐known SEMA show and association.
