Did you realize that auto industry legend LEE IACOCCA was still alive? Well, he was. Until yesterday. His family said he died of natural causes at the age of 94.
He was instrumental in the creation of the Ford Mustang, the Ford Pinto, and the Chrysler minivan. He became famous after the Chrysler bailout in 1979, when he’d appear in commercials for Chrysler’s ad campaign, “The pride is back.”
He also had a trademark phrase: Quote, “If you can find a better car, buy it.” And he played Park Commissioner Lido in a 1986 episode of “Miami Vice”. It was just a minor role, and unfortunately, it didn’t lead to a career in Hollywood.
