I was transferring some old work from CD to HDD last night, and came across a folder of Ford designers’ proposals for NAIAS 2005.

A few years ago, I put up some others from the around the same era (the last one being one of my all-time favorites— Mustang on GT platform).

Some would look great today, some... maybe not so much. A fun look back at a snapshot of the Ford design staff was thinking about back in 2003. The way it worked was that each designer got 4 pages in Powerpoint: intro, synopsis, image board, and sketch. I didn’t strip the names from the pages that had them in the sketch, but I’m only calling out a couple of the people I knew.

Kyle Evans’s 2Duece is pretty damn sweet, I think. You might recognize his name from his time at Jeep.

Also love Kevin George’s cab-over coupe beast.

Two proposals from Bill Mangan, probably best-known as the interior designer of the Ford GT.

OK. That was a longer post than I’d thought.
