Brooks Stevens was one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century. He even designed the Weinermobile! There's a new exhibit this summer at the Milwaukee Art Museum (he's from Milwaukee). I may have to drive up there and see it after Exotica in Chicago (depending on whether I go to Detroit or not).

Look at this early motorhome!



How about this observation car on the Hiawatha streamlined train:

This guy rules.
Thanks for the heads-up on the exhibit.

That's three good links you've sent me to TODAY, Dean.
Busy day, my man!

Assuming I am not too permanently hung over after Exotica, I may have to caravan up there with you to check it out.

Just another boring day at work for me.

There will be no time for sleep or hangovers!
