GM was once hip

Ok, so with GM getting a lot of unfortunate press lately, I thought I'd bring to light something something stylish from their past. The house my wife and I rent has an old Frigidaire Flair Custom Deluxe - it was so dirty when we moved in that we could not tell if the console light was on or not through the caked on grease - seriously the person who lived here before us must have had bacon at every meal and had an irrational fear of cleaning products. Anyway, under all of the grime (the grime that isn't permanently baked into the glass that is) was a very stylish relic. Who can argue with an appliance that offers "infinite heat" (infinite and fairly uncontrollable). Anyway, I thought I would share, possibly some of you will find something inspiring the details I photographed - possibly a palette for a print piece or web site - who knows.
