Meet the Designers Behind the Wheels

Our old pal Michael Surtees dropped us a line late yesterday with a link to the NYTimes feature, “What Young Designers Dream Of.” We’d missed it on our Sunday morning read because the Automotive section doesn’t usually make it over to the Midwest editions (which makes us also worry that you New Yorkers are keeping other sections away, like an annual “The Meaning of Life” magazine supplement). Anyway, the story mixes about with the hot shot designers at all the major car manufacturers, both getting to know them and learning what their visions are for the future of their brand, all in time for the upcoming New York Auto Show, which opens its doors to the “Do You Come With the Car?” masses this Friday.
