    I don’t know about “Glamour”, but one of my instructors at Art Center, Harry Bradley, was an ex-GM designer who delighted in relating stories about his years with the General. One such tale involved witnessing a pickup of this vintage in a frontal crash test. According to Harry, upon impact, the rear cab window detached from its weatherstripping and neatly severed the neck of the crash test dummy behind the wheel. True or false? You decide…it was a great story.
