Detroit designers have had an incredible impact on the way cars have looked over the decades.

To honor that, the Detroit Institute of Arts last fall opened "Detroit Style: Car Design in the Motor City, 1950–2020," an exhibit that brings together 12 coupes and sedans designed over a 70 years and runs through Jan. 9. (Visitors must make advance reservations)

The museum describes the display:

"The 12 cars include unique examples of experimental show cars created for display and iconic production models sold to the mass market. Design drawings and photographs will allow you to imagine the creative and innovative processes that bring a vehicle from the drawing board to the street.

Deadline Detroit photojournalist Michael Lucido got a tour from curator Ben Colman.
