Chrysler Motors files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy,
30 April 2009 .
Lee Iacocca, the retired chairman and CEO who led Chrysler through a government bailout in the late 1970s, said it was a sad day.
“It pains me to see my old company, which has meant so much to America, on the ropes,” he said in a written statement. “But Chrysler has been in trouble before, and we got through it, and I believe they can do it again.”
The government has sunk about $25 billion in aid into Chrysler and rival General Motors Corp.
They should have stuck it out with The Pimpin!
