RSS Video: Malcolm Bricklin documentary The Entrepreneur gets official trailer

Subaru 360s, Fiat X1/9s, and even an electric bicycle - Malcolm Bricklin has been involved in the sale of each of them. You can even thank him for the loathed Yugo, which he brought to the US.

Bricklin's most recent adventure of note was bringing Cherys to the US market. That deal, which should have seen Chinese cars on US shores by 2007 fell through. Bricklin sued, claiming he lost money on start-up costs and for expected profits.

Now, there's a documentary, five years in the making, on the Chery business. Directed and filmed by Bricklin's son, Jonathan, The Entrepreneur follows the jet-setting executive to various meetings as he tries to secure funding and manufacturing contracts along with the internal discussions about the business itself.

The Entrepreneur is available on on-demand cable, iTunes, Hulu, and SnagFilms. Check out the trailer below.

It is amazing to me that this man has been successful in business with vehicles that have flopped. Not only flopped, but flopped rather spectacularly. The Bricklin being the best vehicle of the bunch IMO. The Subaru 360 was bad - even for the 60s. Bricklin would go into Canada receivership after less than 2600 cars. Fiat withdrew from the US market in the 80s. I don't think I need to say anything about Yugo, the worst car on the planet. Still he managed to make money or secure money for his next venture. Clearly he is one of those unique people who can fall into the preverbial bucket of shit and come out smelling like a rose. If I can find this movie on my cable system, I might find it interesting.
