My Concept for Pebble Beach this Weekend!

The famed Pebble Beach Concours is this weekend in the Monterey, California area. It's often the site of new car launches. I've created a flagship station wagon, a full-sized plug-in hybrid, the 2014 Buick  Electra Estate Wagon. In addition to the trademark brushed aluminum-and-chrome Sweepspear and microveneer wraparound woodgraining, each front fender carries a platinum metallic circular access hatch highlighting the new TriColor Buick shield logo. Their design is a nod to the dual sidemounted tires so popular in the prewar period. The driver side panel opens to the plug-in circuitry. The passenger side opens to reveal four custom carbon-fiber cloth umbrellas, one for each well-cossetted interior passenger. Center opening side doors are powered as is the rear hatch and tailgate, the former's opening comprising fully 1/3 of the roof before it slides forward along roof rails.

This year at Pebble, I have a friend showing his '56 Mark II convertible in the Continental display, and another friend is there sheparding a pristing '65 Cadillac Coupe DeVille in the Cadillac display.


  1. It's time for the big wagon's to return to market! We had a 76' Electra sedan in silver grey. It was as big as a whale.
