Buick Studio proposal, probably around 1976
Pontiac A body
|My boss in Adv 2 Studio (Bill Porter) asked
me to do a tape and airbrush of his blisters
side theme. We were working on an
advanced Pontiac A-body program. This is
the result. I got the blisters all wrong but it
sold the theme, which was later taken over
and finished by the Pontiac production studio.

|A bunch of Buicks, probably created from about 1975-1980. Giorgetto Giugiaro created the boxy look and we drove it into the ground.
Done as an Oldsmobile to demonstrate
the common door architecture.
|The heart of production studio work is the creation of many variations for a
vehicle, in this case an A-body (above) and an X-body (below).
More special projects, in this case a series of
wagon derivatives and the graphics to support
them. Incidently, Orlo (Reed) and Ivan (Coop)
were modelers in the Buick-I studio :)
actually cool to
work on like a
proposal for the
Regal as an INDY
A Cadilllac, done in Adv. 1 during my last
year at GM. I don't have the actual rendering.
This is a Chevrolet front end (A-Body)
Buick proposals: The logo on the left was
the starting point for the Regal mark.
|You may be seeing a lot of Buick fronts
with the vertical grille played against the
sloping lamps. This eventually lead to the
Buick B and C front end themes.
Another Neo-classic approach to a
Rivera front, and a sketch for a notch
version of the A sedan.

These three drawings were done shortly before each car's introduction, for Motor
Trend Magazine. I had contributed to the design process for the Grand Prix but
was just on loan for the Firebird and GTO.
