Charles M. Jordan was a GM executive for decades and has been a Ferrari enthusiast from the Sixties. He followed in the footsteps of William L. Mitchell the flamboyant design director of GM who was following Harley Earl's style a bit. Jordan , a native of So Cal, from a wealthy orange grove owning family, was more conservative than Mitchell and never did such anything wild and crazy like Mitchell (who put, for instance, a Ferrari V12 into a Firebird, and also had his real SSK customised to be a SSKL) but Jordan did cause controversy by buying Ferraris and driving them around Detroit when at the time you were considered a tad disloyal not driving an American car. Among his Ferraris at one time or another was a Lusso (found for him by Sergio Pininfarina), a Boxer, an F40 , a yellow Daytona coupe and I am not sure which one he took into retirement down in Rancho Mirage near San Diego. His son Mark is a noted designer at Mazda, credited with the Miata design, but his collection started with a Miura. I would say that Chuck always kept tabs on Ferrari in the hopes of having some Ferrari influence on GM design but such influences were always far less than he hoped, though when Mitchell was his superior, he had a better chance. One time they almost built a Ferrari rival, a mid-engined Two Rotor Corvette with coachwork by Pininfarina but then GM axed the rotary and that car never got slated for mass production.
