This photo, showing our 1958 DeSoto Firesweep (thanks, ptcruiser, for the ID!), was taken in Apalachicola, Florida, in 1964. I'm at the left, pointing seemingly at nothing, along with my mom, my brother Jeffrey and our new Chihuahua, Tiger. My dad, as a pilot, was always on the lookout for a great place to keep his airplanes, and Apalach had an abandoned Army Air Force training field with big empty hangars to spare. View full size.
