Dean’s Garage, The Future is Back presents the best posts along with new, unpublished content to commemorate the first ten years of DeansGarage.com.
With an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into GM Design from the ’50s through the ’80s, Dean’s Garage preserves a unique history through stories, quotes, and anecdotes told by designers, engineers, and sculptors.
These recollections describe what it was like to work in the studios, and tell of encounters with exceptionally creative, and often outrageous, fellow designers and managers.
To have been a designer at General Motors Design Staff was the realization of a life-long dream for myself and every designer who had the privilege of working there.
The era of design represented in this book—its champions, its unique time frame, and its long past historical context, will be especially significant to those who experienced it first hand.
This book had to be created. While there are myriads of stories that could be told, these, at least, will be preserved.
