PostSubject: Moparpalooza and Mr. Ralph Gilles   Sun May 20, 2012 8:33 pm

I want to start off by saying this was the best LX Mopar Car Show I have ever been to! Lots of LX’s in all kinds of styles and all kinds of mods! But to top off the day Mr. Ralph V. Gilles Senior VP Production Design and President & CEO SRT Brand & Motorsports was there! If you don’t know who he is? Well he gave birth to the LX platform! I have been in the presents of a lot of so called big shots! And Mr. Gilles I have to say is the most grounded, friendly, engaging and just a cool car guy! I watched him as he walked around the car show and was shocked as to how friendly he was. And not a fake friendly! He really took the time to speak to everyone that wanted to talk to him. He looked you right in the eyes listen and answered every question! He took every picture, signed everything place in front of him, You could see that he was really listening and taking in everything said to him by every person that spoke to him.

So now the info I got from him! No I didn’t bother asking him about the Magnum and if it was coming back lol. First thing I requested of him is to help provide any info on the productions numbers of the 08 Magnum SRT8 to which he said he would. He told me his favorite LX is the Magnum! That he will find out if my car is really the last steel blue. He was shocked at my spreadsheet on all 08 MSRT8’s. And he confirmed that car 240 was built and is in a Warehouse. Something cool he told me that he never saw a steel blue 08 MSRT8 and that the car was real rare. Can you believe I got all this out of him in 60 seconds lol! Oh and he signed my car in two locations!

As I get any new info I will update!

I received info from Mr. Gilles today here is the email. I am waiting for permission from him to post the spread sheet he provided.

Dear Claude,
I did the best I could to gather the information about your car. According to the VIN listed in the email, I was able to determine the following:

- It was the last of 29 PBM(Blue) Magnum SRT 8s(LXDX49) produced.

o On a side note, there were also 34 PS2(Silver), 53 PR3(Red), and 123 PXR(Black) produced.

- Based on the information I obtained, for 2008 MY, 239 Magnum SRT’s were built, of which, this VIN was #229, based on the Warranty Built Date and Hour. It was built on 2/23/2008, around 6 am and the only one with that Warranty Built Date and Hour..

I also did all 239 of the 2008s I found, and ordered them by Warranty Built Date, Warranty Built Hour, and then Gate Line Sequence Number; though that is not an absolute guarantee of order of build. In the case of a tie in Warranty Built Date and Hour, I marked the orders. I also highlighted the VIN specified in the email.

Your car was indeed the last of the Modern Blue Magnum’s and practically the last of all the Magnums!

Take care,

Ralph


Well today I get a letter from Chrylser! Mr. Gilles real stand up guy!!!
