1934 DeSoto Airflow Grill #2

Another shot of the 1934 DeSoto Airflow car which was on display at the 2009 Medowbrook Concours d'Elegance held in Rochester Hills, Michigan. The '34 DeSoto was ranked as one of the 50 worst cars of all time by Time magazine. The DeSoto Airflow used new construction techniques and a radical streamlined design which America just wasn't ready for. That, and some major mechanical problems.

 

This shot is a black & white conversion from a RAW color file. I masked out the black & white over the DeSoto nameplate above the headlight. The car itself, was basically this color so the color version and the black & white version aren't much different. I primarily used the black & white conversion to remove a color cast.
