Seth, thanx for that. Very rare indeed.

Honda, one of the great pioneers of those days, belonging to the group such as Sony's Morita.

Honda was the epitome of self taught mechanic with nothing but passions and incredible talent for his quest, however lacked any kind of business sense, which was augmented by his partner (manager who kept Honda afloat scraping money for the projects). The two of them allowed Honda to grow to what it is today.

Such a great entrepreneur story. Not many of those lately.

Right on, Jimmy; there are a few, but not very many.
