A true legend. He created two very important new segments of the American automobile industry: the pony car and the minivan. Few people can show this achievement in the industry

And he proposed the Minivan to Ford management and they refused to produce it. Later, at Chrysler, Iaccoca launched the Minivan...the rest is history.

He also had his hands in gems like the 1977 LTD II and 1991 Chrysler Imperial and Chrysler TC by Maserati. But I do admire how he spun so many cars off the 1960 Falcon and 1981 K car platforms.
