Challenger Designers' Video Clips

About two years ago, the exterior and interior designers of the 2008 Challenger SRT, Jeff Gale and Alan Nielander, gave a series of fascinating interviews on redletterdodge.com concerning the car's design and production. For anyone who did not see them, they are must viewing. Here are the six You Tube clips:

Awesome!

I've been looking for videos / interviews with the designers of this car.

So cool to hear their thoughts and ideas.

Must be amazing to be part of this iconic machine.

We all owe a big debt of gratitude to Michael Castiglione and Alan Barrington, the original designers of the 2006 Challenger Concept, for bringing the 1970 Challenger back to life!

It's always good to hear the passion for creation, no matter the project. It's extra special when it's a passion of your own. Great post! Thanks! Gonna send these to our VP of Engineering to watch.

For all of you new members, check out the following series of interviews from the designers of the 2006 concept car and 2008 production car. Extremely interesting and revealing!

Love these videos, and the attention to detail that went into the design.

Not designer videos, but I ran across a cool show about building the Challenger. 20 hours total from sheet metal to finished product!

I wonder if those 2 guys in the first video still work for Chrysler? I've watched all of the Chrysler Media, Dodge, SRT videos from about 2007~ forward and haven't seen either of them again.

Hey Turbo Brian and Jeff still work at Chrysler here is there current titles
Brian Nielander and Jeff Gale are both Senior Design Managers still working for Chrysler.
Micheal Castiglione and Alan Barrington no longer work for Chrysler Alan is a Designer at Mercedes and Micheal is a Design Manager at Kia.
