Edsel Designer Dies

Today Roy Brown Jr. died at age 96. They pointed out that, If you can find a nice Edsel today, be prepared to pay six figures!

yup.. most cars that no one wanted at first are big money today..
EDSELS, daytonas,superbirds/hemi convert anything, real cobras/ shelby mustangs..
all cars that didn't sell well at all at first.. the mustangs where so bad that they'd change the vins to make a 65 a 66 .. something that never fly today..

RIP Mr. Brown

Yeah...this is how bad they sold........Pretty shabby......

"Some argue that a collectible car must have been built in fairly small numbers to make it exclusive, and thus more desirable and valuable. So how do they explain why the 1965 Ford Mustang is such a popular collectible? After.all, it attracted a staggering 680,989 buyers after its early public introduction at the New York World's Fair in April, 1964.

The 1965 Mustang set an all-time record for first-year sales of any new model. Today's auto market is too fragmented with different types of cars for a single model to ever get the wildly enthusiastic reception of the first Ford Mustang in America. The top-selling car in 2008 was the Toyota Camry, which found 436,616 buyers."

RIP Mr Brown...hope you didnt get tired of all the bad jokes
