Car club learns about modern automotive design

FALLBROOK – At their July meeting, members of the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club (FVCC) heard a presentation on the Art Center College of Design by member Ed Vivanco. The college was founded in 1930 in Los Angeles and moved to Pasadena in 1975. Alumni of the college include Gordon Buehrig, Larry Shinoda, Chris Bangle, Wayne Cherry, Henrik Fisker, J. Mays, Frank Stephenson and Shiro Nakamura. Nearly

every car produced in the last 50 years has been influenced by alumni of this college.

The FVCC was fortunate to have Tyler Cornelius, a student at the school, attend their meeting and conduct a question and answer session regarding automotive design, following Ed Vivanco’s presentation on the details of the school.

Cornelius, a Fallbrook native and current resident, spent his last year in Munich, Germany as an intern at the BMW design department and is now back in school and expects to graduate as a designer in December.

The question and answer period stimulated the collective imaginations of the members present and provided answers to all regarding the direction and process of modern automotive design. It was an informative session.

The Fallbrook Vintage Car Club meets the last Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Women’s Club at 238 W. Mission Road. Guests are always welcome. Ownership of a vintage car is not required for membership - just an appreciation of the culture. For more information, visit
