The story of the legendary Strother MacMinn, from those who knew him.   Noted for helping found Toyota’s Calty Design Research studio in California, MacMinn’s automotive design teaching career at ArtCenter in Pasadena spanned fifty years, with students including J Mays, Chris Bangle and Wayne Cherry.  Said former General Motors VP of Design Chuck Jordan “if you are in a car today, Mac probably influenced its design,” and “no one influenced car design more.”

An extremely rare example of his renowned LeMans Coupe, being built with a body made from the original mold, will be on display and will be the central focus of the panel discussion.
