May/'15 issue Automobile magazine

My May issue of Automobile magazine came today and starting on page 50 Robert Cumberford picks what he believes are the 25 Greatest Designers of all Time. I turn to page 54 and towards the bottom right of the page there is an illustration of Richard Teague and the following text.

Like many designers, Teague trained at Art Center College of Design and began his automotive career at GM. But he returned to his native California in 1951 as an illustrator. Told that he could have the chief stylist job at Packard, he returned to Detroit, staying with Packard until it collapsed. He moved to Chrysler until a political struggle, at which point he joined American Motors, where he became design VP after three years. He stayed until retirement, in the process authoring the BEST COMPACT-SUV DESIGN, THE 1984-2001 JEEP XJ CHEROKEE/WAGONEER.

Fifteen pages of great designers and designs from all over the world, across all decades of the auto era and there is our humble XJ. I thought it was kinda cool.

Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.
