Francois Castaing was one of eight automotive leaders to be inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame on Oct. 12 in Dearborn, Mich. Castaing is credited with being one of the key people in Chrysler's turnaround in the late 1980s. His platform approach allowed for the simultaneous development of various vehicle systems. Other automotive pioneers, elected posthumously, to this year's Hall of Fame were Edward Jordan, Lewis Crosley, Powel Crosley Jr., Henry Kaiser, Joseph Frazer, Howard Darrin and George Schuster.
