This is a photograph I took of this 1954 DESOTO FIREDOME used as a Taxi and parked outside the office of the Shady Dell Motel in Bisbee, AZ. It’s amazing how being at this motel and its diner are like walking back in time. I did some research on Google and this appears to be a 1954 Desoto Firedome model, a great old car.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens, 1/500 sec at f/6.7, ISO 200.
in the black and white, it looks like a vampire. nice photo
This car has character. I like it yellow, but maybe the background is best left b/w. You must like the movie Cars too!
Think of all the places this taxi has gone . . . fun photo, thanks!
Now that I’ve googled pictures, I think it may have been a 50 buick, rather than a 52. What do you think?
Check it out.
I think you’re right and 1950 Buick sounds more familiar to me.
Do you remember our 52 Buick?
I do, very well, although I didn’t remember the year. So thanks for reminding me. I have an old Buick photo from the Shady Dell as well. It’s a special kind of Buick from 1947. I’ll be posting pictures of it in a few weeks.
