Visit to the GM Heritage Center in Sterling Heights
2004 Nomad concept.
Look who I caught just wandering around with a disposable camera, looking as awestruck as the rest of us:
None other than retired Corvette Chief Engineer, Dave Hill. He was definitely the only one there wearing a jacket & tie!
Transformers' "Sideswipe" - a Stingray concept.
The Cadillac 16 concept.
Cadillac LMP1 racer (by Pratt & Miller!)
'87 Oldsmobile Aerotech Experimental.
'56 Firebird II Experimental.
'59 Cadillac Cyclone concept.
'54 Firebird I Experimental.
'53 Cadillac Le Mans Concept.
'51 Le Sabre Concept. To me this is the poster child of Autorama concept cars!
The 1938 Buick "Y-Job". This was the first "concept car", from Harley Earl.
Interestingly, I noticed that this "concept" showed 25,000 miles on the odometer!
'69 Astro III Experimental '67 Astro I Concept '63 Corvair Monza SS Concept.
Big 'n' Little Oldsmobiles.
Lots of Corvette concepts...
'92 Ultralight Experimental.
Here the camera glitch kicked in again. Fortunately I only lost 23 of the 500 pics at the Heritage Center!
