Trains, Planes, and Automobiles. Larry Wood of Mattel sent me a treasure trove of slides from the late ’40s in an ancient brown metal box with a built-in slide viewer. The slides were for the most part in excellent condition with good color; some were incased in glass protectors. Many Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury design proposals are unsigned, but probably most of them were by designer Joe Oros. A few are signed Engel. So set your way-back machine to around 1947 and buckle up.
Larry Wood went to ACS with Tina Oros, and would like to contact her in order to get the box of slides to whomever should have them. Please contact Deans Garage if you have information regarding Tina Oros.
Joe Oros in mentioned in two previous Dean’s Garage posts: George Krispinsky—Ford, AMC and Chrysler Designer, and Hatching the 1955 Thunderbird.
