Lee Iacocca died

Recommended Posts

 Lee Iacocca started a friendship with the late  Alejandro de Tomaso while at Ford, which led to the De Tomaso Pantera. During the 1980s, Iacocca headed Chrysler while De Tomaso was owner of the historic Maserati brand. In 1984, both companies signed a memorandum of understanding to create a sport coupe, which ultimately became the TC. Chrysler also became an investor in Maserati during that period. In 1985, Lee Iacocca stated that the planned "Q-coupe" would be the prettiest Italian to arrive stateside since his mother immigrated. If You Can Find a Better Car, Buy It.

Rest in peace, Lee. 94 years old. Drive your TC through the pearly gates.

The TC was not a good business decision as history shows . But if it wasn't for Iacocca there may not have been a Chrysler. Hope we all can live to the age of 94!
