In the short half-decade that the convertible series existed in the mid-to-late '50s, a driver named Bob Welborn won three straight convertible series season championships... and I just got a 1/64 diecast of his '57 Chevy #49 convertible ^_^

He also won 9 races in what is now the Nextel Cup Series... he retired at a rather young age in 1964, thinking Nascar's popularity had peaked and had nowhere to go buy down... err, yeah, he was a great driver, but not a good prognosticator.

#3, That's a cool word. Prognosticate. Sort of like pontificate, gubernatorial, or lackadaisical.

I heard that the regular Edsel car was a failure b/c no one would buy them.

#5, Yep and no one would buy them because they were junk.....they were junk because of poor build quality.....they had poor build qaulity because they were built on the same assembley line as Fords often times 10 to 1 and the workers didn't like the odd changes needed for the Edsels (IE grilles and stuff) so they would just assemble them poorly.

#8, No, he was the one who knew precisely jack shit about cars, and regurgitated information that was either LARGELY common knowledge, so bloody obvious it was painful, or an utterly shit rumor that he portrayed as fact.
