So, what is it about a given car that draws our eye? Is it the exterior lines? The paint job? Or is it what the folks who design cars refer to as the "handshake components?" You're invited to join a conversation with the chief of design for General Motors and the chair of industrial design at the Cleveland Institute of Art. It's auto design and YOU on the Sound of Ideas. Tuesday morning at nine. Photo: A 2008 Chevrolet Impala (bottom) and its 1959 ancestor (top).
