DeSoto. It looks like a GT next to the Pontiac.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Nice Pontiac but despite not liking that colour, I’ll go with the DeSoto.

The Desoto certainly has more modern lines but I am just a sucker for that Pontiac hood ornament every time.

I agree with most everyone here.  The DeSoto for me.

Of all the "Which Ones" you have given us John, this one is the most obvious "no-brainer" for me.  The DESOTO is absolutely the better looking of the two.  Not that I don't like the Pontiac, but going head-to-head with the DeSoto, it's a no-contest!  DESOTO!

I love both of these cars and both are my favorites of their marques in the 1950s.  I give a slight edge to the Pontiac....simply because I am a huge Pontiac fan; plus the '55 Pontiac is the car I learned to drive on.

The DeSoto is nice but for me Pontiac has it beat.

If these were ‘56s I’d vote DeSoto but for ‘55 I prefer the Pontiac.

Bob;  The black/ivory convertible that replaced the totaled '54, I seem to recall you remarking.    Wink
