De Soto Model

I got really interested in De Sotos 'cause of Sam & Max and I was wondering what the model was. Also which model do you think is cool, and which color?

  • Its definitely a early to mid 60's De Soto convertible... It may be worth looking into getting a model and painting it up like S&M's

    EDIT

    While googleing the car I came across this picture ..... It seems like a perfect picture for Max-o-vision picture flashes. Why? Its old weird and that woman is posing next to a De Soto engine

  • They drive a 1960 DeSoto Adventuerer if I remember correctly. The model undergoes some obvious bodywork before the Telltale seasons.
  • I thought they said that they got a brand new de soto altogether in the telltale games.
  • Yeah the TTG one is different the comic, LA game and Cartoon all had a hardtop desoto.

  • I just spent a lot of time looking for a reasonably priced DeSoto model kit so I can put it together and paint it up like Sam and Max's
  • Thanks. I thought it was the 1958 model or 1957 the 1960 was only hardtop so it can't be that. Either way it's a way cool car

    Freelance Police also had the hardtop. However, one of Culture Shock's throwaway lines:

    "Remember our old car Max?"
    "I said I was sorry!"

    'Nuff said really.
  • I have a feeling the internal reasoning was simply because they couldn't fit Sam's head and hat under the roof without clipping issues.

    Wow, those things look pretty cartoonish to start off with.

    So did you find one?

    If I was in the market for a car, I'd be looking for a DeSoto to paint up like Sam & Max's (only with my initials on the badge).

    Either that, or a DeLorean to customise with a flux capacitor.

    OR maybe even a reasonably priced second-hand model of whatever's reliable and going cheap. :p
  • No... most are the wrong year so the front grill and headlights are all wrong.
