Car guy Heaven…That’s where I am!

Once a year at Art Center College of Design In Pasadena California they do something so special that even my pal Jay Leno becomes a spectator!

It’s called, Car Classic and I’m a guest of another pal, Syd Mead, who’s future vision caught the attention of the general public world wide with Blade Runner and continues thru today with his art gracing this event, not to mention Interstellar and for Disney, the upcoming Star Wars!

This event is in honor of Syd Mead! – Gale Banks

Syd Mead defines the future as based upon all the events and achievements leading up to the word...Now. Stated differently, the future doesn't just occur one day...it has a history. Here's one of his future-scapes, the Lincoln in the background makes his point.

When I tell Jay a joke I usually choke grandly! This guy is so cool that even his courtesy laughs are genuine. You know you've scored when he says, "Now that's funny"...he's never said that to me! I'm keeping my day job. - Gale Banks
