His last name is an acronym...

I Am Chairman Of Chrysler Corporation America :)

As told to me by Mr. Iacocca's childhood friend Bill Hicks:

He named the car the Mustang after his first car, which he called The Mustang. He gave his first car this name because there was a hood ornament of...yeah, a mustang

I'm deleting this tomorrow or it may disappear sooner. Here are pages 66-70. Page 71 has just "The End." After that it goes to page 81 with messages, credits and such plus a couple more images.
