The rear scallop is painted on the rear fender on the above car to match the '58 Edsel also used in the movie.

Funny that there are no crocodile tears shed for this particular Edsel, one of over 14,000 built. Seriously, out of three model years of production, almost one in eight Edsels was this very year, model and body style, a 1959 Ranger four-door sedan. And 1959 Edsels survived better than 1959 Fords by a long shot. I've seen many, many very nice hardtops and station wagons rotting under trees that went begging for buyers. Which is worse? At least this one gave its life for the sake of public exposure. How many young folks got the hankering to own and save another Edsel from the crusher as a direct result of this movie?

That is what really counts in the long haul . . . not blubbering over one cheaply-obtained Edsel that wasn't worth the thousands of dollars needed to bring it back.

Sorry for the ugly facts, but that's the way it is. I don't make them; I only report them as I see them.

And a little reminder: The most un-American thing you can say is "You can't say that."

58pacer: It has to do with accumulated age. One would expect a beat-up Edsel in 1980 to be destroyed, but a relatively clean one in the 2000s is much more of a shame to see destroyed.

And they aren't "crocodile tears." In my case, I genuinely care about historic cars, and would probably have an Edsel if I were above the U.S. poverty line. Most guys my age genuinely can't afford cars from prior to the mid '70s, save for the odd '60s economy car. Self-indulgent baby-boomers have the prices too jacked up.
