Happy Birthday Italdesign

Giorgetto Giugiaro drew the 70's.  Along with Marcello Gandini, he was the master of the folded paper styling that defined the cars of that era.  Mr. Giugiaro drew the the original VW Golf and  Lotus Esprit--two wildly different cars which are almost re-proportioned versions of the same design.  And they've stayed relevant ever since with a slew of hits that include the Lancia Delta, Fiat Panda, Saab 9000, Isuzu Impulse, Subaru SVX and Alfa Brera.  That's a hell of a run!

Check out this fantastic (but flash based) video voyage through Italdesign's proud history.
