Except for the then-current faux radiator-type grille, I wasn't too into heritage cues back in the '80s. I was looking forward to a Brave New World of ultra-aerodynamics and 200 mph top speeds, everything short of flying. I did many of these renderings sitting at my desk/drawing board in Manhattan during lunch time or after the newspaper or magazine's 2 pm deadline was met each day. We printed in New Jersey and it was part of my responsibility to stay in the office until I got the call from the printer that the publication was on-press and running smoothly, which was usually around 7 pm. I had time to doodle, especially if it wasn't a big week on the catwalks and if no one in the fashion world had died, lol.
