Sure, I had already started that. Now I will ask my son for some enhancement of the pics in Photoshop :)

OK, here´s the rest of the pics from Mike v A. H-special Report. All text is quoted from Mike.
(Unfortunately are the pics not that good)

"Picture above is one of the full scale model that was constructed. This design proposal included a split rear window, five-lug wheels and a rotary badge on the side."


no7.jpg
"The first running H-special prototype, c. 1971 (pic above and below)
This car was built by Pinifarina based on a GM Design Staff design. Note that the hood profile was slightly lower than the production cars and distance from the front wheel opening to the door opening was also shorter. The front and rear bumpers were also separate from the body. The exterior door handle on this car was integrated inte the vent louvers located behind the door."

no4.jpg
"A full-scale clay model of the hatchback coupe is under construction in Chevrolet´s Studio Three (c. 1972) As was common practice, each side of the model has a slightly different design. Note the difference in the windshield area. A drawing of the hatcback appears on the wall behind it. The car in the background appears to be a Vega based mule that might have been used for design evaluation purposes. Studio Three also did work on the Vega, Camaro and Corvette."

Talking about Bill Mitchell:

"GM Concept Vehicles and Bill Mitchell"
http://www.gmphotostore.com/prodinfo.as ... r=53218360

Quite a long article about Bill Mitchell
http://wiki.gmnext.com/wiki/index.php/Mitchell%2C_William_L.

These were two new sites I haven´t seen, http://www.gmphotostore.com and http://wiki.gmnext.com :)

Probably some interesting info there...

On the GM Photostore site they have some nice pics of H07:s, just search for Monza, Starfire, Skyhawk, Sunbird, Vega and Astre

Wow, that gmphotostore is awesome! I'm not sure the wife would agree, but i'd love to get a few of those prints. I'm surprised that GM would have something like that.
