    RDinTN IMHO Mr. Loewy was the lenonardo D' Vencie of the 29th Century and touched just about everything we use today.
    Could that be because we all have Studebakers?

    RDinTN don't want to burst your bubble but rumors need to be put to bed anytime they raise their ugly head. Being a part of a family who owned two Coca Cola franchises from 1907 until 1989 and extremely knowlwdgable on Mr Loewy and his exploits he DID NIT as you stated design the Coca Cola Bottle. His involvment with Coca Cola was on two fronts. 1) He designed the Coke Fountain Machine used by the Fountain Division in the 50's. he also had a hand in the design of the 10 oz. and larger bottle attempting to keep an elongated shape of the original bottle. That was all he did for Coke. He also designed the IH logo and buildings as well as the BP, EXXON and Shell logos along with many other things to includes houses furniture, silverware, toasters and many manty other things. i hope this helps to put to bed the Coke Bottle rumor once and for all but i doubt that it will.

    In regards to the David Bradley manure spreader, after the redesign he couldn't get the company to "stand behind it"

    Yes, Gord; he was contacted to improve the machine's appearance because someone complained that the original design stunk. [:0][^]BP
    You're full of sh**! []

    I seem to remember he also "streamlined" the David Bradley manure spreader. Seems to me there ought to be a joke in there somewhere.

    I should add in the streamlined locomotive he did was the S and T Duplexes for the Pennsylvania Railroad. N&W's J class streamlined concoction was, far as I know, from N&W as there later steam locos were built in house(or shops). However the station at Roanoake had Lowey's fingerprints all over it.
    He also worked over the very stout electric GG-1's......

    The original Coke bottle was designed by the Root Glass Co. of Terre Haute, Indiana. There is a historical marker on the site of their former plant on South Third Street (U.S. 41); as I recall it's in the general area of what is now a Thornton's gas station. I'd have to look up exactly who designed it, as I believe that info is out there, somewhere, but yeah, Loewy modified it into the design we're all familiar with.

    I believe he also "streamlined" the old Gestetner copy machine.
