It is a toss-up between the DeSoto and the Mercury. The Mercury lines currently look slightly better to me.

Same here.  They are all really nice.  But I think the Buick just stands out.

THANK YOU JOHN!  I wanted to see what the three look like when compared head-to-head.  Man, that BUICK is a beauty!

Tough call! The photos of the Buick and Mercury are so much better than the DeSoto. Love them all, but voted Mercury. Ask me again in 5 minutes.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Not that I really like any of them, the DeSoto over the Buick and last Mercury. '58 & '59 not good years for styling I like.

My taste led me to vote the Mercury but that Buick has always been intriguing.

Too funny!  I thought '58 and '59 just rocked in styling!  Across the board, the Big Three hit homerun's those years to my eyes.  Smile

I agree homeruns but I prefer a steady stream of doubles. Just way over done for my taste. You seem to like standing out in a crowd while I prefer to blend in. I don't care for stripped down either.  Middle of the road; not Chevy or Caddy or Buick but yes to Pontiac & Olds; not Ford or Lincoln but yes to Mercury: not Plymouth or Chrysler but yes to Dodge.  This is very very general, since I actually like all cars, even the '58's & '59's just are not on my would like to buy list.  I must be over the hill seeing how the car lines I liked no longer exist.

Desoto over Buick by a nose and Mercury a very distant 3rd.  I didnt consider colors.

Interesting that you say I "seem to like standing out in a crowd".  That couldn't be farther from the truth.  When I walk in to a room, I prefer to be there and not seen.  I don't dress outlandishly, as I prefer to just blend in, just as you said you do.  With regard to the '58 and '59 automobile styling, I agree they were some of the more over the top and perhaps even a bit radical, but that doesn't mean I don't like them.  They were the times of chrome and fins excess, and I like the story that tells of that era.
