Membership Application & 

The DeSoto Diary Newsletter

 Thank you for considering to join our club!   You only have to appreciate the "orphaned" Chrysler brand "DeSoto"; you don't have to own one to be a club member.  We also are diverse in age range and have activities for those who like to work on vehicles, as well as those who just like to socialize.  While you'll find our members are MOPAR enthusiasts, our members have other interests in the collector car hobby from other makes & models.  Although our activities cater to the Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, District of Columbia, and Virginia areas, you can live anywhere and be a member.  Our members travel everywhere! We have a very low membership rate of $10 for one year, or $18 for two years (Save $2!).  

INSTRUCTIONS: Please download the DOCM Application Form file (shown below) and complete that form to start the process.  Once complete, please send your application and check or money order payable to "DeSoto Owners Club of MD, Inc.":
