"I am reporting this information from memory.  This car was red with a white scallop, but had been repainted orange.  The interior was red and white.  I paid $200 for this Edsel, my first car.  It was not in very good condition, and ran poorly.  One day the distributor broke and it was towed to a gas station for repair.  After it was fixed, I went to pick it up and it had been vandalized.  I left it there and the gas station people junked it."
