An Edsel! I Photographed an Edsel!
In 1959 when this car was produced I was a Senior in High School, and could care less about cars. The Edsel was introduced in 1958 and discontinued, as a spectacular failure, in 1960. But everyone knows the term "Edsel" as an synonym for "failure." For a story about old cars that were failures or were laughable in their day, I got to photograph this beauty. It was so much fun to finally see an Edsel in person. It really is cool looking. And, under the hood, you can actually see the engine, and there is room enough to change the spark plugs. And you should see the dashboard and steering wheel!
