Eyes On Design celebrates legendary designers - June 21

Eyes On Design celebrates legendary car designers' work
Detroit Free Press

Landmark vehicles by some of the auto industry's legendary designers will be center stage at the Eyes On Design car show on Father's Day, June 21.

As many as 300 vehicles will fill the grounds of the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores for the annual car show.

Eyes On Design is one of the few classic car shows that focuses on design rather than the vehicles' collectability or value. That means it has a much broader range of vehicles, including some that will never be for sale and are rarely seen by the public...

..Classes of cars arrayed around the Ford estate's picturesque lakefront grounds will include:
General Motors Design: Harley Earl era (1947-1958)
General Motors Design: William Mitchell era (1959-1977)
Ford Design: George Walker era (1949-1961)
Ford Design: Gene Bordinat era (1961-1980)
Chrysler Design: Virgil Exner era (1955-1962)
Chrysler Design: Elwood Engel era (1963-1974)
American Motors Design: Richard Teague era (1963-1983)
Auburn/Cord/Duesenberg: Alan Leamy / Gordon Buehrig era (1929-1937)
Studebaker Design: Raymond Loewy era (1947-1966)
Jaguar Design: Sir William Lyons era (1931-1968)...

...Other events during the weekend will include a silent auction, Sunday brunch on the grounds of the Ford estate and a black tie event honoring Lifetime Design Achievement Award recipient Patrick le Quement, retired Renault's design chief.

Le Quement's achievements included the extremely influential 1982 Ford of Europe Sierra and the Renault Twingo, Megane and Espace...

Harley Earl is likely one of the most famous automotive designers of all time, everything he touched was an instant classic.
