David R. North

As the story goes, David R. North was like all young sixteen year old boys who liked to do drawings of cars. The local Cadillac dealer liked his drawings and had many of them in his office. An executive from Cadillac stopped in the dealership to borrow a car to take his family through Yellowstone Park. When he returned the car, he asked if he could take the drawings back to Detroit. General Motors told David North that if he was accepted into the Los Angeles Art Center School that after he graduated that he would have a job waiting for him. After David's first year in design school, General Motors contracted him for employment after graduation. He became the Chief Designer for General Motors, responsible for the design of more than thirteen million cars. His designs have included the Pontiac GTO, the Grand Prix, the Oldsmobile Toronado, the Cadillac Eldorado, the Buick Riviera, and the Buick Reatta.
