Quote from: Alan Harris CLC#1513 on April 18, 2014, 08:01:21 PMWe have talked before in this forum about how Harley Earl stayed around way too long at GM and spent his later years taking credit for other peoples' ideas. Dave Holls, Ed Glowacke, Ned Nickles, Bill Mitchell and others were the real talents behind the GM look. Earl originally disapproved of the Cadillac tailfin and told his people to drop it. When his superiors were impressed by it, he suddenly took credit for it.......The design that Earl approved for the 1958 Cadillac had about twice as much chrome as the one that was built. Ed Glowacke thought that the prototype looked awful and risked his job to remove a lot of the gingerbread. The top guys liked the Glowacke version better and that was the one produced.
