MotorWeek Gets a Visit From Two Classic Car Clubs (VIDEO)
Recently, the MotorWeek gang was visited by the National DeSoto Club and the Airflow Club of America. We saw some great old cars and heard some great stories from the owners, too!
DeSoto was a division of the Chrysler Corporation that competed in the mid-price field, typically between the Dodge and Chrysler marques. They produced vehicles starting in 1928 until 1961, when Chrysler Corp. decided to get rid of the brand.
The Airflow was a model offered in different variations from 1934 to 1937 by both DeSoto and Chrysler. It featured many significant engineering advances. Most notably, it was the first American car designed using a wind tunnel to improve aerodynamics. However, the cars were not strong sellers, which makes them rare and collectable today.
