Because it's Friday and you like DeSoto, I post a picture of friend Lelles ride. It is very beautiful I think.

How did he do that! He must have created it from a Chrysler shell? Very nice indeed but I have to say, I like the '60 Chrysler better.

My guess is that a '61 Newport convertible was used for to create this white boar (Italian for extremely rare to non existant).

Any which way, it's a very nice car

Hi Magnus - this is my first car! I owned it for 25 years! Your thread is the first image I have seen of it since I sold it in 2009.

Thank you ! ! !

Beautiful Royal 4 door HT! Just curious, a "B" engine with no D500 emblem? Certainly not being critical, just wondered why not the 325 poly it would have had originally.
Super nice car.

My first car in 1974 was a 58 Custom Royal 2 door HT with a 350 CID 2 barrel B engine that was all original. Definitely not a D-500 either. I would guess the 350 was just an option on the Royal with a 2 barrel?

Thank you so much, Magnus and Tom! It is so wonderful to see images of that car again!
Mark you are correct about that engine. The Royal originally came with a 325 Super Red Ram (4bbl, dual exhaust). I bought a Custom Royal 4dr hardtop parts car and basically combined the two cars.
The Custom Royal had a standard 350 Ram Fire and air conditioning. All that went into the Royal. There are other little things like the glove box door, the sun visors, the stainless trim above the rear bumper, and the gold hood letters (I had to paint them, but they are the aluminum ones from the Custom Royal) that all went over to the Royal. It was basically the best of both cars.

What a treat to see it again! THANK YOU! I am so glad it is being enjoyed.

Time flies when you're having fun! These cellphone pictures are from the very pleasant carshow in Lahti, Finland.
This year we showed a -58 Swepside, unusual truck at our latitudes.
The organizer Mikael Forsman does a great job as usual with the show and once again we met Gene Winfield who worked on a Merc during the weekend.

The Green Roadrunner is friend Olli's latest project and neither Fridberg nor Zacke could leave it alone when we visited in Helsinki.

Oh it's a small world This is my friend's '57 Lincoln on my company's stand. He wasn't able to make it to the show so I drove the Linc to car show and back home. On our way to the show it almost burned down because of a shortcut in air conditioning wiring. Managed to cut off power early enough and cutted all the un-necessary wires and the journey towards Lahti continued.

Hopefully it's gonna be my '57 Windsor on display next year at our Big Wheels stand.

DeSoto Winter Wonderland!

Lightens the mood this Saturday night. Did some photos when
friend Lollo and I took a little drive in the snow recently.
The grip on snow gives exciting driving experience
Enjoy!
