I'll grant you that it's an unusual photo, but regardless it's a BUICK!? I'm a little puzzled as I thought this was the DeSoto Club; imagine a first time visitor. :?

Rick...we've got a photo gallery chock full of member's car photos of DeSotos. How about rotating a few of those on the home page?

This gives new meaning to traveling by rail. Although the picture is of a 39 Buick, the grille is eerily similar to a 1940 DeSoto. It appears Chrysler was ahead of GM in intergrating the headlights into the front fenders of their cars in 1939.

Rick...nice photo on the home page!!!

If you run low on suitable photos, go to Google images and search for "DeSoto". Many there to choose from. Here is a direct link:

I have many images of Members cars
that are on Flickr.
They are set as Creative Commons and
are available for use on the website.

:arrow: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=DeSoto&w=10966541%40N02

Some of these are images from the Binder Collection as well as images from 2007 Waldorf Maryland,
2008 Gettysburg PA, and 2009 Saint Joseph Michigan. There are a few videos as well.

If any one in the club would like to download
these images they are welcome to.

If any members would like me to upload images of their cars to the gallery I would be happy to do that as well if it is OK with the Members and the WebMaster.

Nothing on this site tells you how to post a photo. I have some pictures I took at a car showing a one of a kind Desoto. It started out with four doors, a cowl and rear body section, from a 1930 4-dr sedan... and that's all the owner had. It is highly unusual, but unless someone walks me through exactly how to post a picture on this site, no one will be able to see it. Please help
Thanks,
Kent

Rick,
It is NOT a picture for the home page, but rather one that I think most fellow Desoto owners might like to see, but not everyone. I would like to attach a couple of pictures of this one of a kind Desoto, if someone would walk me through the process.
It is not a stock 30s Desoto, but a car that was put together by a young man of imagination, determination, dedication and talent, and he did it on a very limited budget to boot. It did take a first place trophy in its class, and is to be appreciated for what it is, and the amount of work it took put it on the road. Truly a One of a Kind.
Kent

Kent;

When you're in the "post a reply" window, there is an opportunity below the text and options area to "upload attachment". Use the browse button to go to where your image is on your computer, select your image, and click "add the file".

Submit your reply as normal.

I didn't even have to resize my photo. On the old website, the image had size limitations, which doesn't seem to apply to the new version.
