Pictured are most of the restoration crew with the Futurliner. The
big-event is Eyes on Design at the General Motors Technical Center
in Warren this weekend of June 22, 2003.

get all of the roof area.
From the quiet country-side of Zeeland the Futurliner will

The Futurliner heads down the lane to the road where she will be
loaded on a flatbed for the trip to Detroit.
The flatbed arrives but it's all wrong! The Futurliner won't fit!

Nice shot of the completed Futurliner -- at least on the outside.
The inside still needs a lot of work.
Picture of the Futurliner with a vintage Ford. The Futurliner will
mix with a number of vintage vehicles at the Eyes On Design show on
the Warren Campus of the General Motors Technical Center.
