Back in the fifties, I had heard about the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild and sent away for the information. At the time (too young to enter), I was intimidated by the requirements for entering. Still, I followed some of the progress of the competition over the years.
The best part of this book is the absolutely interesting self-written stories of the successful entrants. If you ever had an interest in this competition, you owe it to yourself to get this book!
I worked for GM Styling Research Department in 1960, and took the Summer off of 1961 to build my own 2 seat sports car that I had previously designed in my automotive design class at school. My experience gained in the design and building of my Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild models helped stimulate my desire to become part of the auto industry. I retired as an Executive Engineer from General Motors with 32 years of service. I also had the opportunity to work in Advanced Vehicle Engineering at the Ford Motor Car Company and Chrysler Corporation.
With over 40 years working inside the auto industry, I was compelled to write a book called, LOOK OUT AMERICA, also sold on AMAZON, because of the collapse of both GM and Chrysler in 2009.
My whole interest in the auto industry started with the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild. Thanks, John for revealing what other Guild members had accomplished and what they had done with their lives.
