"If this were the April 1 update, you'd probably think this was a photoshopped hoax.. But it's real. Watch for the new 50th Anniversary edition 2008 Edsel at shows around the Southeastern US as Edseler Rob Cerame unveils his latest creation! This car started out as a Ford Crown Vic, and Rob designed and installed custom trim, bumpers, taillights, interior, wheels, etc. He maintained the integrity of this fantasy car by comparing current Ford and Mercury vehicles to stay true to the modifications that a real 2008 Edsel would include. Full photos and more details can be viewed in the Custom Creations wing of the Edsel.com Gallery."

Hmm, now seems as good a time as any to complain about this. Any time a pic is posted in a thread, if it exceeds my screen width, a horizontal scroll bar that would normally be available on any other site seems to be MIA. Anyone else have this problem, know how to fix it?

And yeah, that's pug fugly.

I have that problem too, and I thought it was my monitor, but when I switched to a wide screen, it still didn't go away.

And that is an ugly Crown Vic!

I can't say this looks any worse than when GM "facelifted" Chevy Caprices in the late '80s and called them Pontiac Parisiennes.

Scroll bar MIA or not, having to scroll from left to right is a PITA!!! PLEASE get rid of that crap on the left side. I'll even pay you!

Yes. Upgrade to any modern browser. Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE 7 or 8... anything at all.

Would like to see the build process. I wonder if the bumpers are fibreglass or plastic.

It looks like an Alfa gone horribly, horribly wrong. Or like sombody punched the Vic in the nose hard enough to leave an imprint.

I can't help but be reminded of "Naked Lunch" when I look at the front of this thing... ugh.
