    Yours truly created the image, the design for Motor Trends Magazine’s “Car of the Year” Award winning 1977 Chevrolet Impala/Caprice while incarcerated in Prison during the early 70′s.

    Penitentiary Staff and Inmates at Marquette and Jackson Michigan Prisons were the first to witness and critique the designs.
