Vintage Snapshots: A Gallery Of DeSoto Owners

With Halloween just passed, I feel like I’m chasing and seeing ghosts around here. Those hearses from yesterday’s posts may have something to do with it too. I may as well just spend some time with another marque that lives only as a ghost, and devote today’s gallery to DeSoto.

There are some sharp and nicely appointed numbers in this collection, and I can see why the brand’s name resounds to this day after all this time. Today’s images go from the marque’s dowdy postwar years to the sleek toothy period and finally, the fin-tastic late ’50s.
