    Still a fan, thanks for you enthusiasm. Maybe I missed it but has AL ever recommend any books on Detroit auto design and history of the US auto industry. I’m always intrigued by the the influences of change, cause and effect.
    Secondly after watching Ed’s most recent visit, I was surprised no one especially Ed, not mention some of his favorite grilless designs; Olds Alero, Aurora, and Intrigue. Thanks

  3. Reno A Says:

    Thanks John for sharing your enthusiasm for the auto industry and having Ed back.
    Any books that you would recommend on Detroit auto design and history?
    I noticed some of Eds favorite creation we’re missed from the conversation on grileless design; Olds Aurora, Alero, and Intrigue.
    Thanks again.
