This week we offer an invite to one of the automotive greats. Our guest is Jack Telnack, the man responsible for the design of the first-generation Ford Taurus as well as the 1979 Mustang. He also headed up design at Ford’s Australian branch at the tender age of 29 before serving as the Vice President of Design for 17 years. We’ll be asking him if designing for aerodynamics will kill expressive styling as we know it. As usual, we’ll be getting into some of the hottest topics of the week including the fight against the coming CAFE standard, UAW’s target on VW and why youngsters these days prefer imports to domestics. John McElroy is joined in studio by Motor Trend’s Todd Lassa as well as Drew Winter from WardsAuto.com.
