I'm tempted to weep like French hair dresser, this thing is so glorious.

I wanted to use it for a fortified cab in an anarchaic city I created. The place is called The Hulk, or Casa Desperata, depending on who you ask.

:lol: The Edsel was a major failure in automotive marketing! I can't imagine why...

Um. I don't know how well acquainted you are with the post-apocalyptic/near-future genre of film, but...aesthetics are incredibly different in them then in other genres. Case in point, ' the 'Mad Max' triology:
[link]

Not a single car crash in that video was simulated. Everything done in the early Mad Max movies were risked by the stunt doubles and actors. Sometimes at the cost of their lives.

Oh, wait. You were saying you can't imagine why the car was a failure. Not why I would want it, and would be obviously giddy to have it for my saga.

I agree: it's a gorgeous peice of machinery. I intend to mutilate it into a mangled fiend. I thank you for enabling me in this enterprise.

I am a big post-apocalyptic fan. I was hooked on the Life After People original documentary as well as the subsequent series. I have seen all of the Mad Max movies, actually saw them in the theatre. I'm old ya know! ;P Rock on, can't wait to see what you do! That car and several others like it are a little under 4 hours away from you in Seligman! Many Edsels in Seligman for some reason!

Oh I'm not procuring this lovely man. No.
lol.
I'm just a comic writer right now: the car is for a character named Syd Palmer I'm currently drawing.

I'm going to sketch the edsel with Syd in it, or something like that. Basically I'm using the car for character designs.

It looks like the car is doing a lot better than the building behind it.

Definitely! There's more dilapidated buildings than good ones along 66.

Thank you! :heart: It was about a four day Route 66 road trip to finish off 66 where I left off last fall. I'm planning a major one in a few months.

From what I have seen, aside from the metropolitan areas, most of the US is pretty much deserted. For a bit of a change of pace when I am on the road, I am going to swing by and do this ride. [link] When you decide to come back across the pond, let me know and I can point you in the right direction! After ever trip I always say its the last. They always take a lot out of me and it can get lonely out on the road at times. I usually stop driving about sunset, find a motel and eat dinner. If there is any tasty neon in the area, I'll try to shoot it. Then it's back to the room, to recharge batteries, re-spool film, review the next days plan and repack the gear. By then it's late and I am up at sunrise to get the most out of the next day. Usually once the digital images are edited, the film processed and scanned and the images posted, I get the itch to hit the road again! Guess that I will never stop!
