1955 Red Desoto Grill
Not too long ago you could tell the make and model of a automobile purely by its shape, colour and amount of chrome. These cars were not designed in a wind tunnel, mileage was not a concern, and safety features often took a back seat. Tail fins were added merely to reflect a then modern day design sense. Chrome was not a environmental concern and was used abundantly. Hood ornaments became a symbol of speed, of the modern age, and of technology. These were simpler days; a car, it’s make and model stood for something.
