Vent Page XLII...The ANSWER....
Amazing that vent pages have evolved to this point!
Whenever the number of posts on a vent page make it cumbersome to navigate, a new vent page is started. This is number FORTY-TWO in our series!
VENT PAGES are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name?Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU!!
Of course '42 was a significant number in the history of the American Automobile Industry. After a very VERY short run of 1942 models, production was stopped and American Assembly Lines converted to production of war materials.(except for a limited number of automobiles made primarily for government use) . 1942 models of ANY American automobiles are quite rare today. One notable example of the '42 production, was the 1942 DeSoto....styling changes included the hidden running boards and the hideaway headlights. One of the great styling achievements of the pre war Chrysler Corp cars was this model. (Probably most 'car guys' would argue that the Chrysler Airflow was the ultimate style leader for Chrysler, but this DeSoto comes close!) The headlight feature (which had also appeared on Cords prior to this) was only for the 42 model. When production restarted with the post war 1946 models, the hideaways were no more.
