EyesOn Design 2014

1947 Buick Super Estate Bob MachacekEyesOn Design for 2014 featured another full field of breathtaking automobiles. Here’s a brief report and a big photo gallery. 

 

 

 

The EyesOn Design Automotive Design Exhibition is a Father’s Day tradition and a Motor City institution. One of America’s top collector car events, the annual show benefits the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology, which recently became part of the Henry Ford Health Care System.

Last week, we gave you a full rundown of the exhibition categories for this year’s show. From the hundreds of great vehicles on the display field at Edsel and Eleanor Ford House this past Sunday, here’s a few we lingered over:

+   Burke Brown’s tastefully styled and beautifully finished 1937 DeSoto Convertible Coupe.

+   The epitome of hardtop station wagons, a fascinating mid-century body style, the 1958 Buick Caballero owned by Steven Plunkett.

+   A 1964 Buick Riviera coupe in a rare and stunning color, Coral Mist, shown by Al and Cheryl Schmidt.

+   Bill and Barbara Parfet’s elegant 1935 Duesenberg Convertible Coupe by Rollston, in snow white lacquer with matching wide whitewalls and white wheelcovers—this year’s worthy winner of the EyesOn Design Best of Show award.

You’ll find all these wonderful cars and more in the gallery below.
