From the BBC site yesterday:

Lee Iacocca, the car industry legend who created the iconic Ford Mustang and saved Chrysler from bankruptcy, has died at the age of 94.

He died at his home in Los Angeles from complications from Parkinson's disease, a family spokeswoman told US media.

Hmm, Renault invented the Chrysler Voyager, they had it made by Matra and called it the Espace :mrgreen:

Great bloke, anyway, RIP.
