The aesthetes at Car Design News have some solid coverage of this year's College for Creative Studies student expo, where the fine arts include painting, furniture making, and, indeed, car design. The senior projects were sponsored by GM, meaning that most of the designs were forward-looking iterations of GMCs, Pontiacs, Chevrolets, and Hummers. One family vehicle was based on the idea "Parenthood is Evolving," whereby the vehicle has replaced the dinner table as the center of family conversation and interaction. Another was a purebred racecar straight out of the margins of a bored high school student's notebook. The most radical idea may have been the Hummer earmarked for actual off-road duty, to be used by the National Parks Service. Keep in mind, this will only happen far in the future, when the Earth has been paved over, and there are no forests left.
