DEARBORN, MICH. — Keith Crain, chairman of Crain Communications Inc. — parent of Plastics News — was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame July 24 along with three other automotive luminaries.

Crain and Volkswagen Group supervisory board chairman Dr. Ferdinand K. Piëch, customer satisfaction pioneer J.D. “Dave” Power III, and the late designer and visionary Alex Tremulis were chosen, according to Automotive Hall of Fame officials, because they “have significantly impacted the development of the automobile and the motor vehicle industry. Inductees are recognized for their individual achievements, innovations, and historic contributions.”

The ceremony was held at the Detroit-based College for Creative Studies' A. Alfred Taubman Center, formerly General Motors's design studios under noted designer Harley Earl.

The ceremony coincided with the 75th anniversary of the Automotive Hall of Fame, which was established in 1939.

The Automotive Hall of Fame's mission is to preserve and celebrate outstanding automotive achievement. Since its founding in 1939, the Hall has honored nearly 800 men and women from around the world.
