July 2008 Member's Car of the Month

1958 Edsel Pacer convertible owned by Mike and Nancy Hinsch of North Plains, Oregon
The car was owned by the owners of Brodsky Edsel in Eugene, Oregon and was Mr. And Mrs. Brodsky's personal car for two years. The car moved on to three more owners in the Eugene/Springfield area before it was restored completely in the late '80s. This is when Nancy and I first saw the car at a Regional Meet in Kennewick and Nancy wanted that car (or one like it) someday. In 2000 we became the fourth owner and love the car.  We love to drive the Pacer as often as we can and have driven it to places as far as Edmonton, Alberta to the E.O.C. Annual Convention.  If you can’t drive it, why own it, is our philosophy!
It is restored to its original condition: Sunset Coral and Snow-white color combination. It has 7,500 miles on the restoration and should give us many more years of Edsel fun.

Options: It is equipped with power steering, brakes, tachometer and town and country radio.

EOC Co-Founder Dave Sinclair's 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible

59 Corsair Convert Corsair Convertible
Dave's car in Dearborn 2007 Dave with Babe in Bemidji, MN
My '59 Corsair convert was delivered to the Bakersfield, CA area and spent its life in the dry Central Valley climate, until I acquired it from Tom and Barbara Wolfe of Porterville ,CA. in Feb. 1978. The Wolfes were very early EOC members.
 
The car is painted Jet Stream Blue, a seldom seen color on a convert. and only a handful are known.  It had 102K miles on it when I bought it, and now has 148K miles. It is not restored, and much of the paint is original.  Its equipped with the 361 Super Express V-8, Dual Power Drive, Polar-Aire A/C, power seats and electric wipers. It has been a great and trouble free tour car over the past 30 years, and I hope to drive it to Edmonton this summer for the 50th anniversary of the 1959 Edsel introduction.

And then there was this really nice engine in this awful looking beater with Fred Flintstone front floors...
