We know, a General Motors designer—the chief designer at that—should be all about GM design. But, we’re all allowed to like things outside of our boundaries, right? GM vice president of global design Michael Simcoe certainly does.
Simcoe was present at a GM Design car show ahead of the Woodward Dream Cruise this past weekend and a Ford Model T rat rod was his best in show. GM sculptor Todd Storrs built the Model T all himself, according to Automotive News, and he hasn’t kept it a garage queen either.
“He did it all himself, and he drives it in rain and snow,” said Simcoe.
The Model T features original and reconstructed parts. Powering the Ford is actually a Chevy heart—a 350 cubic-inch V8 engine while a Camaro five-speed transmission provides shifting duties.
Simcoe isn’t in the market for a Model T, but he is on the hunt for a classic car for himself. The GM design chief seeks a 1963 C2 Corvette split window, which is becoming more of a rarity these days.
