Back in the day, automakers often did not make major changes from year to year but we kids would wait with eager anticipation to see what they did. Car magazines would try to give sneak peeks to whet our appetites.  Damn, I miss those days.

Aaah, the sweet smell of the honey wagon wafting through the countryside.

Chief, I am guessing on the date but looks to be a 1959 Desoto Fireflight. I remember my good friend 's father had one when I joined the Army in 1960.

Chief, I assume you meant the car and not the twin headlights.

2d DRAGOONS

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
