    Hello, I have been in the car scene all of my life thanks to my father and his father. I guess you can say its a "family tradition."
    I have got a few cars but my favorite is my 58 Edsel Ranger 2 door HT. I purchased the car last summer and brought it home to add to my collection. I also have a 59 Edsel Ranger 4 door sedan that was given to me by my grandfather just before he passed away. This car was bought brand new in 1959 by my family and is still hanging around and on the road! Last I also have a 64 Impala that I also enjoy. I have been truly blessed to be able to aquire all of these cars. I am always working on cars, whether it be mine or other peoples cars.
     
  2. Welcome from Kansas City, aaahh the Edsel...some laugh but I would love to add a '58 more door to my collection. Very unique lines and no mistaking what it is. (what part of Iowa, I spend time at Camp Dodge just outside Johnston).

    Welcome from Illinois. I'm a big fan of Edsels myself. I've had a couple of them now. They always get a lot of attention.

    Edsels are cool!

    Welcome aboard js4crzn
    Edsels are unsung superstars of the late 50's - sure, they've got a look that only a guy could love, but that is part of their charm.
    Cheers.

    Glad to see you on the HAMB! I met you last summer at the Washington cruise.

    I have a friend near Kalona with a 58 Ranger 2drHT for sale if you need another :)
