Harley Earl - GM Designer Extraordinaire
Harley Earl, the larger than life, first head of styling for a major
automobile manufacturer gave the world the joy of excess in color, chrome
and steel. Recruited by GM in the late 20s to transform its drab autos and
make them stand out from the offerings of its competitors, Earl transformed
the industry and the American psyche.
He invented the annual model change over, the concept car and put swagger
and some Hollywood panache into a staid industry. While its hard to defend
his buoyant designs as fine art, he captured the imagination of millions
worldwide, especially in Post WWII America, who embraced the outlandish
vehicles as proof that there will be a big and better tomorrow. He knew
how to create and sell dreams. Which is what he learned from his neighbor,
C. B. DeMille.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
