I know I’m getting caught up on stock cars here, but there were naturally some great hot rods and customs as well. Bill Wickert’s 1958 Edsel was easily one of the best customs. Bill built it himself, and did a spectacular job. The emblems had been changed to “SLEDSEL,” which seems appropriate, and there were sweet little custom touches everywhere you looked. From the stance to the wheels to the interior, every detail was just so. It even had an air cleaner that was ingeniously crafted from a spare grille. You would never think something so nice could be built from a car with such a bad reputation.
There were so many nice cars at this show that I could just keep writing these little features forever. But instead, I’ll show you a whole bunch of pictures. More than 1,100 of them. So many pictures, I had to break them up into two slideshows, which you can see below. There are also links down there if you want to see a nicer version.
