1951 Buick LeSabre and XP 300

After WWII, GM design head, Harley Earl commissioned a new car for his daily driver -- the LeSabre. This car featured things not found on any other vehicle; a built in jack, a top that came up when it sensed rain, windshield wipers that automatically wiped when it rained and a cyclops, hidden headlight. And Earl had the designers create the XP 300 for GM's head of engineering, Charles Chayne.
