More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Ford Edsel, in the 1950s, was one of the most notorious flops in automotive history, so much so that it has become a synonym for an epic fail in some circles. It became so unacceptable to drive one that the owners of them were mocked for driving them.
However, the brand got the last laugh: a 1960 Ranger-series Edsel convertible sold in a November 2006 auction for $184,000.
