 October 13: “The Edsel Show” with Crosby and Sinatra airs on this date in 1957
No car ever received — or likely will ever get again — the introduction that the Edsel did. Henry Ford II was determined to make the Edsel a pillar of the company, and his marketing team used every weapon they had. Ford called the Edsel’s debut “E Day,” and had the windows of the new Edsel dealers covered until the car could be revealed in September 1957. On this date in 1957, Ford took over Ed Sullivan’s time slot on CBS with a live one-hour special: “The Edsel Show,” starring Bing Crosby and featuring Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Rosemary Clooney and Bob Hope.

 Watch a 2,000-hp Nissan GT-R thrash Lamborghinis to win “King of the Streets”
In theory, building a unlimited street-legal race car is pretty simple. You add parts to boost horsepower, run until something breaks, fix it and repeat. In practice, massaging machines up to 2,000 hp out of regular production models requires years of dedication and a high level of engineering expertise — which is why head-up racing events like the Texas Invitational often feature the same handful of shops battling for top prizes.
