1957 DeSotos at the 3D picnic, Chagrin Falls, OH, August 13, 2011


This year, Lorraine and I attended in our Firedome sedan.  Despite the prediction of a miserable afternoon of rain, it turned out absolutely gorgeous.   The turnout of DeSoto vehicles wasn't as great as in some past years, but the fellowship and friendship is what counts.  Dave Vershall attended but without his beautiful Fireflite, and Joe Starc and son J.T. attended but without their gorgeous Fireflite.  The 3 1957 cars that WERE there included ours, the great Firedome coupe of Larry Cola, and the beautiful Firesweep that Leon Haddix used to own.  Yes, it was there, courtesy of the new owners, Rosemary and Neal Stolowich from Louisville, Kentucky!  What a treat to meet them and to see the car again!!!
