John DeLorean – auto designer

John Delorean

Designer of the futuristic gull-winged car named after him in the, John DeLorean’s car company ran into financial trouble in the 1980’s. The news media helped champion his cause by running in depth stories to draw investors. I remember watching a 60 Minutes piece and thinking to myself that a man so desperate might be easy to setup. Don’t know why such a wicked thought ran trough my head, but it did. So it was surreal, when the next year the story of his arrest on cocaine charges broke in the news soon followed with FBI video evidence showing, not his guilt, but his entrapment.
