This speedometer changing colors with speed on a 1959 Oldsmobile is seriously one of the coolest design tricks I’ve seen in a car.

If you like cars, subscribe to Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube. This 1938 Buick “Y” Job episode is one of my favorites. The Harley Earl design had hidden headlamps, power windows, flush door handles, and the waterfall grille design still used by Buick today. 

Harley Earl, a Stanford University dropout, was the initial designated head of design at General Motors, later becoming vice president, the first top executive ever appointed in design of a major corporation in American history. He invented the concept of the concept car.
