AP Wire | 08/13/2005 | North Dakota man is undisputed Edsel King:
BEULAH, N.D. - It's widely considered the most hideous and over-hyped vehicle ever to hit the highway, but the Edsel couldn't be more magnificent to Leroy Walker.
From its horsecollar grill to its spaceship-like tailfins and scads of gadgets like a push-button gear selector on the steering wheel, the Edsel is a car to be coveted, Walker says.
'The highway gets a little sweeter when you're driving an Edsel,' he said. 'There isn't a soul on the road who doesn't smile and wave at you.'"
"At last count, Walker had 226 Edsels scattered throughout his 37-acre compound in Mercer County. The disarranged parking is by design."
