The '25 Ford
Some thoughts for today:
The title is
misleading, what I mean is ‘people who were ‘headliners and/or innovators’ who
made their mark’ in my years visiting this world.
To tell the
truth, like many of my blog entries, this was brought on by a quote MA used in
Never Complain.” That was a quote by Disraeli of Great Britain. It struck me
because a Biography of Henry Ford II was titled that. I thought it was original.
(This is friend Buddy's 'stang' I never was fortunate to own one)
know Lee Iacocca. This is the kind of
man I look for as president. The son of immigrants with the genius mind. There
are vehicles that stand out in my life time, The Corvette, T-Bird, Mustang and
the Mini vans. Iacocca was responsible
for two of them, the Mustang and the Minivan.
(We did own at least a couple mini vans)
When Ford fired
Iacocca he said, “I know Ford will never make the money it has under you, but I
just don’t like you!” That line is recorded in both biographies. ..... Ford said before he died, basically I fired
Lee because he would not be a ‘YES’ man, he was too strong, I can’t have
amazed me after reading both biography’s that even wealthy men will ‘cut off
their nose to spite their face’, as another wise person (my mama) would say.
continue this line tomorrow.
