This book captures the spirit of the post World War II America and the era of tail fins, big chrome, and glitzy trim created by Detroit automotive stylists. Here is the complete story of Detroit as it emerged from the war and geared up to produce the first completely new automobiles since the 1930s. In depth interviews with Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler stylists take you into the Detroit design studios and executive board rooms of the 1950s, and behind the scenes at Packard, Studebaker, Hudson, and Nash.
