This is the oldest videotape recording in existence. The Edsel Show stars Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Rosemary Clooney. Produced at CBS Television City on October 13, 1957. Seen live across the USA in all time zones except Pacific, The Edsel Show was tape-delayed for broadcast 3 hours later in the Pacific Zone.

How To Clean A Ford MAF Sensor - Simple & Effective
Cleaning a Ford mass air flow sensor. This procedure should work on most Ranger Mustang Taurus F150 etc. from the 1990's and 2000's. After doing this, my truck performed much better. Smoother running, and more responsive. I used paint thinner and denatured alcohol with a cotton swab.





Henry Ford II talks about the Edsel
The Edsel, the car that's become synonymous with automotive failures and terrible design was named after Henry Ford II's father, Edsel Ford, the long suffering son of the original Henry Ford. Edsel was known for his love of art and style and refinement. Unfortunately, his name will be remembered for this disaster. His son, Henry Ford II, sometimes known as "HF2" or "Hank the Deuce", was the oldest son of Edsel Ford and oldest grandson of Henry Ford. He was president of the Ford Motor Company from 1945 to 1960, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) from 1960 to 1979, and chairman for several months thereafter. His time at the helm was uneven. HF2's management style caused the company's fortunes to fluctuate in more ways than one. For example, he allowed the offering of public stock in 1956, which raised 650 million USD for the company, but the "experimental car" program instituted during his tenure, the Edsel, lost the company almost half that. Likewise, HF2 hired the creative Lee Iacocca, who was fundamental to the success of the Ford Mustang, in 1964, but fired Iacocca due to personal disputes in 1978 (about the break in their relationship, HF2 was famously quoted as saying, "Sometimes you just don't like somebody"). He formally retired from all positions at Ford Motor Company on October 1, 1982, upon reaching the company's mandatory retirement age of 65, but remained the ultimate source of authority at Ford until his death in 1987.
