I wonder if her car came from that mid-west auction of a big De Soto collection a few years ago?

Wow. That actually brought a tear to my eyes. 2 of my 3 children appreciate my '57s and even used them in their weddings. The 3rd one didn't want anything do do with them. Great to see a young person so in love with her car, and it's a beauty!

Terrific and well written story, and as the former owner <------ of another '58 Firesweep Sportsman 4 dr hardtop, I heartily approve!!!

The car was won at an auction in Ohio a couple of years ago.

I took very slight umbridge to her "art deco" reference - clearly midmod! 

I can forgive a seventeen-year-old such trivial concerns.

 

I thought that was from the Ohio auction!  Cool stuff.

I also found this quite encouraging, if not for the fact that it confirms that I am not the only 20 something, young blood who loves these finned beauties... also in Ohio no less. My father also gave me a love for the old Mopars and I also got my Dodge from an Ohio barn find (the way I got to buy it was some considerably different circumstances however. ) She also has an appropriate love for the best, matching era of music I may add.

Cool '57 Dodge!... my Grampy's '57 four door hardtop was the car that got me into Forward Looks.

Oh it's Murray's daughter? He's been a well known Mopar part vendor for years, and clearly he's a super Dad as well!!

Beautiful car and great story! The 1957 and 58 DeSotos are my favorite years for DeSoto and I especially like the 4 dr hardtop. That’s one of my must have Forward Look vehicles. Sadly they seldom surface in decent shape.
