The DeSoto is very modern looking. Especially in the front design over the old, stodgy
looking Oldsmobile. I guess the first three letters describe it best..'Old'. The way the DeSoto's front fenders and hood are designed are more modern and streamlined than the Olds with its gargantuan 'waterfall' designed hood / fender design.
