Iacocca Foundation Fundraiser Magnum

Iacocca Foundation Fundraiser Magnum

This Hemi-equipped Dodge Magunum R/T is used to help raise funds for the IACOCCA FOUNDATION, which supports the efforts to eradicate and eventually cure diabetes. Lee Iacocca's (first) wife, Mary, died of the disease after many years of suffering and her husband made it his job to do-away with diabetes in his lifetime. His efforts have actually already come very close to destroying diabetes, especially through genetic engineering processes. We didn't see Lido his-own-self at SEMA, but he's usually there for a day or two. His legend lives as alrge as anyone else's in the world of cars and trucks. (Maybe no one will pay Iacocca $10,000 a day to sign autographs, like FoMoCo does with Carroll Shelby).
