Cars in Movies-1959 Edsel
20 September 2006 | by (US) – See all my reviews

There wasn't any mention of the Edsel in the previous comments, so I'll try to clue you in. This is a great movie if you like Edsels, the real star was the 1959 Edsel!

Meat Loaf as Jack does a great job as the heavy, really scary! However, the best scenes are when David is chasing the bigrig Peterbuilt that Jack's driving, in his old 1959 Edsel, (this was the car Ford built in 1958 to fill the gap in their line-up to catch up with General Motors}. It was a ill-fated and well documented attempt. World know as FORD'S "FLOP"

If you liked DUEL with Dennis Weaver, you'll love this one. The hero drives a much more interesting car.

The hero wins in the end, thats the Edsel of course! for more about Edsels visit my Edsel group at autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/edselmail/
