Here is a front quarter view of Robert carters 1960 DeSoto Fireflite. That red and white color makes it quite the eye catcher!

Here is a rear quarter view of Robert Carter's 1960 DeSoto Sportsman from the 2017 Ypsilanti Orphan car show. I think there is a sneak preview of Joe Ely's car parked next door too.

Here is the dashboard from Robert's '60 car. Those of us familiar with other Chrysler products might recognize that dashboard as being almost identical to the one used in the 1960 Dodge. The clock is a little different.... I think the Dodge used that peculiar "satellite" clock, while the DeSoto used the more sensible one seen here on Robert's car nestled between the two button pads.

Robert- I know the 1960 model looked like it was going 70 MPH even when it was standing still, but did the speedometer register it too?
