"My father, Eugene D. Hauptmann Sr., was Sales Manager at the Dallas Edsel on Ross Avenue in
Dallas, Texas. In 1958 I was six years old, and remember the showroom floor with the
Edsel kid's car. It was a difficult time for my father being half German working with a
car that was ahead of its time with little thought to common maintance and repair. He
had fond memories of the sleek designs and powerful engines. The next year he was
working for Ford and bought a pink T-bird Convertible."
