The 59 DeSoto has a great deal of appeal to it. 👍🥸

I'm quite partial to the DeSoto from this period. I was quite sorry when they were discontinued.

DeSoto is nice but I liked the '57-'58 styling much better, Oldsmobile for '59 gets my vote.

Tough one...I prefer the DeSoto, but the '59 Olds was my Dad's all-time favorite car, so I'll vote for it on his behalf!

OLDSMOBILE!  With the exception of the '59 Cadillac, the General Motors '59 line-up of cars to my eyes were the dictionary definition of BEAUTIFUL!  This said, this was a a tough "Which One?" to vote for, because after the not so attractive '57 and '58 DeSoto's, I found the '59 very pleasing to look at.  But against Oldsmobile, sorry DeSoto loses.

The 59’ Desoto styling is superb! Thinking of the Marques we’ve lost since the 1960s really saddens me.

This is a tough one....going with the Oldsmobile because a buddy had one back in the day.

Olds for me. I've always thought that the '59 Olds and Pontiac were the best looking cars of that year.

Like both but a very slight edge to the Oldsmobile.

Very close but I like the trim and tail end of the DeSoto more than the Olds.
