Oscar-nominated actor helps unveil customized Jeep Commander
Los Angeles, California – Academy Award-nominated actor Terrence Howard and Chrysler 300 lead designer Ralph Gilles unveiled a customized 2006 Jeep Commander on the red carpet at the 37th NAACP Image Awards.
As title sponsor of the awards, DaimlerChrysler brought the two together as part of “My Custom Style”, a DaimlerChrysler and NAACP initiative to increase diversity in the field of automotive design.
The Howard-designed Commander, which features his signature, will be auctioned on eBay between March 3 and 12, 2006 (www.eBay.com, item number 4616180090) with proceeds to be used to create a minority automotive design scholarship fund at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
