Edsel's Folly

Edsel Ford launched the Edsel auto much to his Pa's consternation! He hyped it hoping his namesake would reach top sales across the nation! Edsel touted it as the latest and greatest but it proved to be a flop! Folks soured on this woeful lemon since it spent most of its time in the shop!

Bob, I love how you put this together. The Edsel was a little before my time but after googling a picture of it I would have to agree with you when you say it looks classy. Great write my friend...Happy Thanksgiving..Stay well and all the best...Charlie
