Victory 1942 De Soto
More than 10 years ago, I produced my last model. It was a Victory 1942 De Soto Custom Fifth Avenue Club Coupe and Convertible. I felt I could not compete with the Chinese any longer. I thought it would be a good idea to compare this older model with the new Brooklin, because they are both the same two-tone of Beige and Brown. I think the colors are a little softer on the Victory, because we had access to different types of paint, where as today, it looks like there is a clearcoat on the actual car, which is in the Bulgari collection. I am not finding any fault with the Brooklin, just a comparison of then and now. I intend to purchase the Brooklin, The photos have come out, but I need the help of John Kuvakas to resize. Thanks John. If you can followup with a photo of the Brooklin.
