End of an era - a bipolar manic depressive multipersonality era, but an era nonetheless.

Lots of favorite moments for me during his career. VW buying the antiquated Rolls-Royce factory and the rights to Bentley, finding out BMW had first dibs on the Roll-Royce name due to their jet engine partnership, and then VW saying they knew that and really only wanted the Bentley name anyway was a memorable one for me.
