Ask Patty has been invited to some great events taking place during the
L.A. Auto Show this week, and one of them was the GM Design Dinner at
the Simon LA Restaurant at the Sofitel in Los Angeles.
We met with Dave Rand, Executive Director of Design (Interiors), and Kathleen Zak, Global Design Director, both with General Motors. Kathleen has the incredibly interesting job of designing the interior pieces inside those GM cars and trucks! Next time you sit in a General Motors vehicle and remark on how perfect the seat feels and how nice the steering wheel design is, you can remember to thank Kathleen!
The design presentation was top notch and we love the great photos we have of the interiors and exteriors of the new generations of General Motors vehicles. There were several bloggers from the automotive blogosphere present at the dinner so it was a great time to catch up with the automotive world and all the news out there.
And just for fun, check out the picture of the dessert we were served! It is called the Junk Food Sampler. For nostalgic '50s kitsch-food hounds, it's almost too good to be true. Here are rice crispy squares, pink coconut snowballs with chocolate inside, miniature Twinkies, a bag of warm chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies, and more, all made with the best ingredients. Yum!
Check back frequently for our continued updates of the show! We get to meet with Tiger Woods later today so stay tuned!
