Hello All:

YouTube videos of Bill Robinson have been posted on YouTube in the past few days. Bill was an auto designer with Briggs Body Co. in the early/mid 1950s and created many design studies for Packard. Some of you may have met Bill at the PAC National Meet in Columbus in 2018 were he gave a lecture one evening.

Last summer the folks from Clasiq Car Stories spoke with Bill at the Packard Proving about his career. The framed images used in the videos are original, hand-drawn artworks that Bill did at Briggs. In 2016 Bill donated all his Packard designs to the PPG.

I hope you enjoy his story:

Bill is a real gentleman and a true treasure.

My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell all my "toys" at the price I told her I paid for them.
Ain't no such thing as a lonely widow that inherited a barn full of old cars
