Is there anybody you look up to? Heres mine..... Preston Thomas Tucker (September 21, 1903 – December 26, 1956) was an American automobile designer and entrepreneur. He is most remembered for his 1948 Tucker Sedan, an automobile which introduced many features that have since become widely used in modern cars. Production of the Tucker '48 was shut down amidst scandal and controversial accusations of stock fraud on March 3, 1949. John Zachary DeLorean (January 6, 1925 – March 19, 2005) was an American engineer and executive in the U.S. automobile industry, most notably with General Motors, and founder of the DeLorean Motor Company. He was most well known for developing the Pontiac GTO muscle car, the Pontiac Firebird, Pontiac Grand Prix, and the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car, which was later featured in the 1985 film Back to the Future, and for his high profile 1982 arrest on charges of drug trafficking. The alleged drug trafficking was supposedly an attempt to raise funds for his struggling company, which declared bankruptcy that same year. He successfully defended himself against the drug trafficking charges, showing that his alleged involvement was a result of entrapment by federal agents. THEODORE ORNAS, (???- March 14, 2009) was head of Future Vehicle Design at International until he retired in 1980. He worked on many truck designs including the 1953 R Model, the 1957 A Line, Sightliner, and the 1969 D Line Light Duty Line. But Ted is most well known for his "kitchen table sketch" of what was then to become the new 1961 Scout. Theres one more but i cant find a pic or info..... A certain JwPhillips..... The original Medusa cylinder design came from the bench of gunsmith Jonathan Phillips, a computer specialist for NASA and a former competition shooter, who used to regularly carry 12 to 15 guns of different calibers to the range every time he went to shoot. Knowing that the calibers he shot the most–.38, 9mm and .357–were all the same size, he decided there had to be a way to minimize the number of guns he had to own. Phillips (who’s the cofounder of Phillips & Rodgers) took two years to fashion the first working prototype and patent it.
