Peter Horbury, FoMoCo's designer of the now infamous Gillette-like "Hi, I'm Dave!" grille is not only a designer with the "big balls" necessary to design FoMoCo out of their Nasser-created product design nightmare, but now he believes in magic. That's right, the always lovable, huggable and eminently quotable Horbury dropped this little tidbit on Phil Patton when asked about the doors of the Lincoln MKR concept

"In the future you will simply touch the car and the door will magically open."

What will FoMoCo think of next? Maybe Horbury's next design will be based on a Nimbus 2000. We can only hope to see a car shaped like a flying broom coming out of the next Detroit show.
