    At about 4 minutes in, there's sketches of enough concept cars for the next two decades of Ridler Awards!

    At about 6:00 in, they're covering the clay bumpers with chrome tape. How do we get such tape? pretty neet if it can lay down smooth on compound curves! That one draftsman laying down on the board was totally into it! Full size clay mock ups are cool.

    Hand drafting - what talent that took! Modern CAD can make any hack into a design genius! Myself included.

    Now if we could only find the "missing" ten minutes at the end!

    Thanks for the post.
