This year, the prestigious car show on the Monterey Peninsula of California ventures beyond the usual collection of Duesenbergs and Rolls-Royces to celebrate the futuristic concepts and design studies of the General Motors traveling showcase known as Motorama.

In its heyday during the 1950s, Motorama delivered the automakerís message of postwar optimism to millions of curious spectators. On display will be the 1938 Buick Y-Job that begat the dream-car era; 17 Motorama showpieces from the 1950s; a 1959 Corvette racecar that forecast the í63 Sting Ray; and one of the custom-crafted trucks that hauled Motorama exhibits around the country.
