My grandparents in 1960-61, Lakewood, California originally purchased the Edsel.  Granny was an original "Edsel Owners Club Member", but in her late 70ís, could drive the car no more (no power steering).  The Edsel sat in my sentimental fatherís backyard from around 1982 to 1992.  The car was towed to San Diego in 1992 (engine was in pieces).  Restoration has progressed in slow stages to the current level of safe roadworthiness.

*500 miles on rebuilt engine and transmission.
