Every year the employees and retirees of GM Design hold a car show the week of the Woodward Dream Cruise. In addition to showing off some great looking cars, many significant in the history of automotive design, the show raises money for charities, including the Boys and Girls Club. This 1960 LeSabre convertible was on display. Many people think that the ‘angry’ winged Buicks of the late ’50s and early ’60s are kind of odd looking, but in person it’s a great, cohesive design. I like to use the phrase “purity of line” to describe harmonious designs and from the headlights to the tail fins, all the elements of this car sing together. Certainly it’s a design of its own era, but there’s a freshness that appeals to me, though if you want to look at a period automotive artifact, check out the deep dished steering wheel that just screams “jet age”.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
