Damascus DeSoto

In the heart of Damascus, near the Mosque of the Umayyads, in a back street, this deep blue DeSoto was drinking up the Syrian sunlight. A work of art, a little the worse for wear, but evidently still going strong over 50 years from its birth in some dank and long closed factory in America. I can see it rolling grand and free along winding country roads, sailing across smooth seas, taking to the air, navigating among the clouds, and why not onward and upward to the stars...
