The folks at Autoweek got the creators of the Ford SVT F-150 Raptor (Jamal Hameedi and Bruce Williams) together to talk about how it all began. There's nothing new here but it should be viewed as a great example for lower-level manufacturing engineers and designers, showing them that if you have a good idea, do everything you can to get it seen.

The key takeaway for us: If you have a golden goose (and for Ford it certainly is the F-150), do everything you can to move into the "white spaces" of design and engineering. The results could get you and your company huge profits and media attention.
