This was my great uncle's Edsel. It's been stored since 1970, I thought that it was stored in '82, but I was mistaken. Heck, I was 8 years old in '82, so that's the earliest I can remember the car in my grandma's barn. I found out it was stored in 1970 when I went to get the data plate info, there was a Motor Age magazine under the front seat with writing in pencil that said, "stored Edsel in 4-5-70". I talked to my grandma more and she said that was around the time he (great uncle) bought a Ranchero. My father couldn't even remember when it was put in the barn so this was a surprise to him also. A couple of years ago my great uncle signed the title over to my father and we just started getting the itch to drag the old beast out. Hopefully the resto will start in '02. Wish us luck!!
