1954 Desoto Adventurer II, Body and style by Ghia

Located in the San Diego suburb of La Mesa, on El Cahon Blvd east of the 70th St intersection is a terrific car museum called "The San Diego Collection". Owned by the guy who owns Charco Construction, he really throughs a terrific show when he brings some cars to local public car shows. I saw a few he brought to the Coronado Car Show in the summer of '04.

7215 El Cahon Blvd 619 667-3136 to make sure you'll get there during business hours. Worth the trip! I've met a couple of the museum guys when they were at other San Diego car shows like the El Cahon wed night cruise. Great guys, and a terrific museum.
Sliding rear window... such a cool thing to have. In the 50's, Chyrsler was trying to wrench customers from the competition with Italian styled cars, like I mentioned in http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2006/12/1954-dodge-fire-arrows-up-for-auction.html#links and http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2006/12/1958-prototype-ron-reagan-lost-his-in.html#links
