Lying here in the hospital, checking craigslist I found a '58 Edsel 2 door hardtop. I might have hit my head in the accident that put me in here, but I like it and it looks like an easy restoration. I might have to have it. Should I have them do some more tests on my head?Thanks
If it is a Citation or Corsair with automatic transmission it has push-buttons in the middle of the steering wheel to shift the transmission.
forget it. Get something else or plan to just convert it to manual shift, like a '58 Mercury trans with or without overdrive.
Wait until you get off any pain medication before making any decisions. I'm still recovering from lung surgery three weeks ago and have been thinking foolish things as well... I hope that it passes soon, the latest one was a 1965 Mustang just like the one I had in high school (rust and all) and then I realized just how that car was and shuddered.
Keep the faith, and good luck with your recovery!
Yes, of course........ :-) No answer there eh? :-)
If you like that Edsal, get it and enjoy it like you do with your older vehicles.
The folks at the hoosgow would've kicked me out long ago! I'm a terrible patient, no patience at all. :-)
You're a tough man Thom!
We need you to get out and get back at it. :-)
Forget the Edsel. Passed on it, but I found a 1930 Chevrolet 4 door sedan barnfind. It is complete but partially disassembled. The wood has been replaced. The body is in fantastic condition. It, thanks to a couple of very good friends, will be waiting for me, in my garage when I go home from the hospital. My '21 T will keep it company.
You have good friends Thom. :-)
Ooh! A "stove bolt" six! Never played with one of those. Yet.
If your '21 and the '30 are open minded, they'll get along just fine!
Get well soon!

Tommy, have them check your brain functions thoroughly.
At least the Edsel was a Ford, now your considering a Chevy?
I say it's a bad case. LOL
Get well soon and have fun with the Chebby !
Looks like the 30 Chevy deal is off too. Oh well, there is an interesting '52 Chevy business coupe for sale nearby. I believe I'll check it out.
