Pictures of 1957 DeSotos from the National DeSoto Club convention, St. Catharines, Ontario, July 2005


This convention was centered in the beautiful Niagra Falls area, and my wife Lorraine and I had a WONDERFUL time! This year, we only took one car, our newly-restored Adventurer! Although we made it TO Canada and FROM Canada, we blew a tube in the radiator core the day of the show while IN Canada! I was a block from the show, but not with the other DeSotos. We ended up taking the radiator out, making some emergency repairs, and have since had a new core installed!

There were not many 1957 cars there, much to my disappointment. However, here are some pics of those who WERE there.

Here is Bruce McMullen’s beautiful Adventurer! It’s for sale (email me for contact information). It has a nice body and is a sharp car, but the engine is from a Firedome.
