On this day: September 4.

I've talked about some serious tragedies on here, and today's post is no exception. On September 4, 1957, the Ford Motor Company introduces the Edsel. Production on the Edsel would only occur for three years, with Ford announcing the end of production in 1959. The car was such a spectacular failure that it ended up losing the company $350 million. And that's the 1950s dollar.

I don't know. They might have been too far ahead of their time. Check out CBS News Sunday Morning's "If At First You Don't Succeed."
