I’m devastated by the passing of an American icon, my dear friend Lee Iacocca. In addition to his contributions to our nation, he was a founder of EIHS and served as vice-chairman for many years. He will be missed.

I just heard Lee Iacocca passed away today, although I haven’t seen anything in the media. Some of you may remember Mr. Iacocca as the “father of the Mustang” while some may remember him as the man who saved Chrysler (the first time).
