My 1950 DeSoto Custom has gone through a facelift. I purchased the car at auction in 2007 (shown in the Photo Gallery) with the hope of restoring it over time and have a fun car to drive around to embarrass my then teenagers with. This past winter, we got serious about it and had a lot of fun with creating a more fun vehicle than the "plain Jane" it started out as. Here is the result.

Tim,

Perhaps you can bring it to next year's Convention in Kalamazoo? This '46-'48 styled as a taxi was at this year's meet.

The dates for our 2015 NDC Convention are the 14th through the 19th of July; at least those were the dates stated at our convention this year.

The taxi's last event for 2016. Photoshoot with Miss Ruby Sparkles in the Brown's Race historic district of Rochester NY. Fun time!
