There are iconic names in the history of automobiles.  Names that have earned the right to be listed at the top of the automotive car chain.

Corvette.

Mustang.

Cadillac.

Model T.

Thunderbird.  And More.

And then there are the names that,well, aren't at the very top and in fact, may be at the bottom.  Whether in reality or in perception and memory, these names don't inspire wonder and awe.

You know some of the names.  Pinto.  Chevette.  Corvair.  And...

Edsel.

Generally remembered with either a smile or a roll of the eyes, the Edsel just didn't...just didn't...make it.

But they didn't know that when they rolled out the brand new shiny 1958 Edsel's!
