Default Random GM Design Studies 60s-2000s

Deans Garage has posted a treasure trove of GM design studies from the 1960s through the 2000s, grouped by designer:

David McIntosh:
*Early variants on Cadillac Art-and-Science theme. Including a very small (front-drive?) model and a very large one (DeVille/Fleetwood replacement?).
*All sorts of wacky early efforts at what became the Lambda models.
*A Lumina replacement that might have given the Chrysler LH a run for its money.
*A 4WD Lumina APV.
*And much, much more....

Clark Lincoln:
Includes mostly 70s and early 80s small and midsized studies. They all look about a decade ahead of their time.

Allan Flowers:
Mostly front and rear details from the '60s and '70s but spiked with some interesting small car proposals.

Gray Counts:
A lot of advanced concept work, much leading up to the early '90s Achieva/Skylark programs.

I've seen some of that content posted elsewhere and it is interesting to see the evolution of a production car in the sketch to clay period. Lots of good stuff in the links.

I'm still making my way through the first link (I'm just seeing this thread for the first time). Great post!

Naga Royal Guard is an unknown quantity at this point

Took a good look through the Cadillac section, they sure were obsessed with the notion of throwing off the flab of the Fwd barges.

The second generation CTS was the most successful fruit of this labor by far.
When I died: cocaine, alcohol, hydrocodone, digoxin, alprazolam, diazepam, bupropion, chlorpheniramine, citalopram, and ethamphetamine were found in my blood.
Who am I?

I love looking at these designs, evolution's, themes, eventual executions - but also seeing hints of design in other areas / products. The Caddy 'SUV' that seems to be based upon the Hummer looked interesting.
