Torq-O talks with Margery Krevsky, the author of a new book about auto show models called Sirens of Chrome.
Margery tells us how models at auto shows evolved from decorations to walking automotive
She also takes us behind the scenes and tells us what it takes for a model to become fully turntable enabled.
Also, listen in for a rare soundtrack from an early female product specialist: Florence Henderson. (That’s right, before she married into The Brady Bunch, she was Oldsmobile’s favorite spokesactress in the late 1950’s.)
