    I wanted the Bill Mitchell designer story made into a poster and now i want this one as well. Harley Earl was just one of those larger then life characters to come out of GM back in the day. He gave American cars a nice new twist of styling that made so many cars from that era stand out. Yes some of the 1950's cars may have been a bet opulent and excessive but that was the time they were living in. He help give us the Buick Y-job one of the first concept cars of its time. He also was one of the first in the US to use clay modeling for cars. May his designs live on

    Very interesting article! Thank you. But, if "there’s one era that unites everyone in admiration: 1950s auto Americana", why there are so few articles about the automobiles from this era on your site?)

    No photograph of the Buick Y-Job? That's a bit of an oversight isn't it?

    There is one in the main graphic. Side view, not huge. It's there.
