In the annals of disappointments, Ford's Edsel holds a special place. The Edsel, once the name of the heir to the Ford Empire, eventually became the word for dud. The man who designed the Edsel, Roy Brown Jr., died last week at 96.
Robert Meyer is the proprietor of Edsel World in Fort Myers, Florida. He deals in Edsels and Edsel parts and is a huge fan of the car.
