Former Ford Design Chief Jack Telnack is Guest Speaker at Lincoln Homecoming

His appearance will be part of the annual Lincoln Homecoming, which is held every year at the Lincoln Motorcar Heritage Museum on the campus of the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Mich.

The New York Times called Telnack the most influential designer since GM’s Harley Earl. Telnack’s signature design at Ford Motor Company was the groundbreaking 1986 Ford Taurus with its “aero-look” design. It paved the way for the soft, sculpted look of cars. 

Telnack and his team followed with “new-edge” design, as seen in the 1997 Ford Ka, 1999 Mercury Cougar and 2001 Ford Focus. He retired from Ford Motor Company in January 1998.
