"Modes and Motors
was a publication produced by General Motors Styling Section in 1938. It is reproduced here in its entirety because its message of what automobile and product design is supposed to represent is lost on today’s world. Modes and Motors is a snapshot into the way designers used to think about their profession."
So then Dean's Garage
would be the fat album of classic automobile styling and design from which it came, documenting a long, beautifully chromed age of optimism.
