    For a lot of people who aren't enthusiasts, it's not particularly important who designed the car, i don't know that anyone is going to erect a statue to Harley Earl, but I think it's important that he's remembered. There really isn't anybody today in the design industry that has the impact and the clout, the presence and the profile that Harley Earl had in his day. ... But Harley had a unique set of circumstances. He was The Man.

  4. Johann von Goethe:
