Clasiq Clasiq Season 3: Designer Series
From his early drawing of the Corvair under Ned Nickels, to his advanced futuristic designs in the Pontiac Advanced studio, Elia ‘Russ’ Russinoff is one of those designers who has been able to touch so many GM cars that spark joy when we see them. Russ was even a 1st Place Sr. National Winner in the Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild Model Car Competition in 1949. In his retirement Elia still draws cars along with other ex-designers in the “League of Retired Automotive Designers.”
Have you ever thought about doing the same job after you retire… just for fun? The League of Retired Automotive Designers is a group of ex-industry professionals who continue to design and reimagine automobiles from defunct or closed car manufacturers and dream what they would look like built today.
