Bob Lutz, who has had a 47- year career in the auto industry and is a former vice chairman of General Motors, will speak at an Eastern Michigan University event about his book and experiences in the industry.

Lutz is known as a “legendary car guy” who aggressively pushed for innovation and higher-quality cars that would captivate the buying public.

Lutz will share his perspective in a talk entitled, “An Evening with Bob Lutz” from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 10 in the EMU Student Center Ballroom. The event will feature the talk, dinner and a copy of his new book, “Car Guys vs. Bean Counters.”
