By Don Hammonds

‘A few years ago, Automobile Journal caught up with General Motors styling chief Ed Welburn, and had a talk with him about Buick design.

At the time, Buick had introduced a fabulous convertible concept called the Velite, and just about everybody had begged Mr. Welburn to make sure this one saw the light of day. Alas, it didn’t–or at least it hasn’t so far–but  Mr. Welburn did speak almost poetically about what he called the “romance” of Buick design.

2010 Detroit Auto Show in Review

This year’s North American International Auto Show, while subdued in energy, still popped with unveilings of cars that could figure largely into the upcoming sales year.

Chief among those cars was the all-new Ford Focus, expected to hit the sales floor in 2011 as a 2012 model.  To say that the new Focus is dramatically different from the current model is an understatement of the first order. The new model is snappy and hip looking, and a good example of Ford’s …
