GM’s Great Talent Search
A reunion of many participants in the Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild was held at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, January 18 and 19. Models representing the ’50s through the ’70s were on display. There was a lot of interest; the display area was constantly crowded. John Jacobus, author of the two FBCG books, was also there. Ron Will, FBCG National Award Winner, former GM Designer, and creator of the Turbo Phantom, did an outstanding job organizing the event.
I recognized several designs I remember drooling over as a teenager from several of the Guild’s How to Design and Build a Model Car books and other publications, so it was a real treat to be able to meet the designers, a renew old acquaintances. This post is a photo essay of the event. Enjoy!
There were many photos taken at the event. Send me your photos for a future post!
