    A quick Google search failed to find a landau-barred K-Car, but RIP. I'm sure Kitdy will find an appropriate minivan hearse.

    Iacocca's legacy is a tough one for me; he kept a wayward Chrysler solvent and was instrumental in the creation of that iconic piece of 20th-century Americana: the Mustang. These achievements are laudable, but I feel he had a patronizing view of the automotive public (history bears out his success, so it obviously was effective) and certainly had a hand in the race-to-the-bottom and lowest-common-denominator American automotive landscape of the final quarter of the century.
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    I will pour some out for Lee, in memory.

    In short, he was the most significant auto executive in North America of his generation; and certainly one of the most important ever. He leaves a long shadow over the Big 3.
