Wayne Kady is Krasl Concours' featured designer
The Krasl Concours is happy to have as our designer guest on Saturday, Aug. 8, retired General Motors Chief Automotive Designer Wayne Kady. Wayne, of Royal Oak, worked at GM's Warren Technical Center from 1961, when he was hired by GM straight out of California's well-known Art Center School (where he graduated with honors), until his retirement in 1999. During his 38-year career with GM, Wayne worked in both Cadillac and Buick studios.
Wayne was raised on a small farm in the San Joaquin Valley region. He started drawing cars when he was 5 years old, and GM was the only auto company he wanted to work for. Like a lot of young American boys, he loved cars and could draw most models from memory. Just as I did when I worked briefly as a clay modeler at the Tech Center, Wayne spent his initial few months at GM in the Preliminary Design School. His first studio assignment was in Cadillac, and he worked as a designer on the exterior of the 1965 Cadillac. It was during his stint at Cadillac that he worked on one of the cars he is most fond of, the 1971 Cadillac Eldorado. Wayne owns a 1972 Eldorado convertible in his personal collection. He remained in the Cadillac studio until 1972 when he was promoted to the Buick exterior design studio, and he worked on all 1975-76 Buick models.
Then, in 1977 he was reassigned again to the Cadillac exterior studio and would remain Chief Designer for Cadillac for a record 13 years - the longest any chief designer has ever served in that capacity. He was responsible for all Cadillac models except the Allante during that time. During the 1990-99 decade until his retirement he was chief designer in the Buick II exterior studio and worked on the popular Century/Regal models, the Skylark and the re-introduced Roadmaster.
Wayne will visit St. Joseph the weekend of the Concours. On Friday night he will present a free program to members of the Krasl Art Center, Southwestern Michigan Car Collectors car club and owners of vehicles invited to the event. While there is no charge to hear Mr. Kady talk about his years at GM, it is necessary to call the Krasl Art Center (983-0271) and make reservations. The program will be Friday evening, 5:30 to 6:30 in the Krasl library. Early registration is advised, as seating is limited.
Wayne will join narrator F. Edward Lucas II (the Voice of Meadow Brook) on Saturday, Aug. 8, at noon and share remarks about a number of GM cars that are appearing in the Krasl Concours.
