The General Motors Design Team is responsible for drawing up the latest vehicle designs for the company, but have you ever wondered what these members have in their garages?
For the last three years, the GM Design Team has hosted a car show on the Wednesday prior to the Woodward Dream Cruise featuring their own personal cars. From Corvettes to ratrods, classic Chevys to modern customs, the rides of the designers show an eclectic mix of love for all things automotive.
One of the members of the team we ran into was Craig Sass, who is the interior designer for the C6 Corvette. Craig was showing off his 1967 Pontiac LeMans which was the very first car that he got at the young age of 17 in 1986. Over the years, the car has been modified from its previous regular LeMans drivetrain which featured a 326ci V8, 2 barrel carb and a 2 speed transmission with 2:64 rear end gears. Today, Sass now has what is essentially a GTO drive train with a 400 ci V8, 4 barrel carb, turbo 400 trans, and 3:55 rear end. Craig reminds those behind him that the car is a Lemans and not a GTO with the vanity license plate that reads ?NO GOAT?.
Chevy also brought out some of their latest vehicles to show off including the 60th Anniversary 427 Convertible, the new Camaro COPO and the 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
