Late last summer I was driving through a small michigan town and stumbled across a tiny car show. I noticed a set of dodge fins poking out from the crowd and had to stop. Turned out to be a 57 D-500! The owner was a lovely woman who explained she wanted a 1957 because thats the year she got married. She went on to say that was a big deal back then because people didnt have sex until marraige-LOL! At first she wanted a 57 Chxxy but fell in love with the fins and pushbuttons of the dodge. It was a wonderful moment and I was very glad to have stopped.

Nice car, nice colors! That story makes you wonder if the folks who use this website are the majority of forwardlook owners or the tiny minority!

jason, Nice Dodge D-500, Typical overcast hazy skies...Looks like the the Thumb area of Michigan. Use to go to a bunch of car shows in Bad Axe, Lakeport and Lapeer area. Wherever it was at looked like a nice cozy show.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and the story behind the car.

How long did she own this car ? Sounds like she bought it after wanting one for some time ... and did not own it since early days.

The reason I ask .... A guy named Fiorito bought a car just like this from Mopar Mel in the early 80's ... my first exposure to "fine"
workmanship. If I didn't know better, I might think this is the same car (?) .

Thanks John... to be honest I dont even know the name of the town ,Somewhere about a half hour south-west of saginaw
Dr. desoto...I didnt get a chance to speak with her husband but I dont think they owned it for decades-and it certainly wasnt a recent purchase.
It seemed a VERY nice restoration and was holding up well. A tiny cowl chip showed decent looking original blue paint underneath.

Some of the nicest and rarest cars show up at the smallest shows. Thanks for sharing that one!
