David, where have you BEEN for the past 18 months?
How can you possibly have missed all the desperate bleating on this forum from people like me lamenting that this Kess De Soto (first revealed to the world at Nuremberg 2 years ago) might never make it into production? Our lives and future happiness now depend on Carmodel telling the truth that they will be shipping it from 15 October.

By the way, strictly speaking this 1960 model wasn't actually the last De Soto. That was the 1961 car, with its truly hideous new front end.

Fortunately, just 43 days after the new models were shown for the first time, Chrysler Corp decided to pull the plug on the ailing De Soto brand. A tragedy for De Soto lovers, a small mercy for the rest of us.

Roll on October 15th.
