Cartoon number 7 was drawn mutines after a Harley Earl “design session” in Body Studio 2, circa 1955. I showed it around the studio. There was nervous laughter.And to David McIntosh, it’s nice to see that others had notions about a GM Styling musical. In Robert’s and my musical, cartoon 7 was inspiration for the Harley Song: “Up a 32nd Down a 32nd”. It was sung by a Harley lookalike while a dance team did the mad gyrations of designers and boardmen at a full-size drawing board. Then there was the “Design Committee Shuffle” and “Don’t Design It Chrome It!” The plot was about two young fellas (us) who saved the world’s largest corporation (GM) from bankruptcy. Ha ha! Never happen. We’ve learned a lot since then.Stan Mott
I went to work at Mattel in 1968, where I met Howard Rees, a recent ivraral from Ford. Howard told me that there really had been a performance of a musical comedy at Ford Styling that was basically a rewrite of a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta. I subsequently read somebody’s account of Ford Styling History that referenced the same operetta, but regrettably I don’t remember where I read it.That sounded like a phenomenally funny idea to me; songs about highlights and surface entertainment . I have long hoped to learn that such a performance had actually been recorded, but apparently it was not.

Thank you for the whole thing!
