Olson: Minivan driver meets Sycamore’s future concept car designer
Dylan Schmidt plans to turn his love of cars into a career, and he’s going to get a lot of help from the Ford Motor Co.
Schmidt, an 18-year-old senior at Sycamore High School, recently won a $24,000 scholarship from Ford for taking second place out of more than 200 entries in an automobile design competition called “Designing for the Future.”
Schmidt’s prize-winning entry was a hand-drawn sketch he made of a concept car targeted at affluent 20- to 30-year-olds. He called it the 2025 Lincoln Obsidian.
