RIP, John DeLorean

The man known mostly for the failed DeLorean DMC-12 and drug trafficking has died at the age of 80.

While best-known for a $24M cocaine bust, he probably should be remembered for basically kicking-off the muscle car craze by developing the Pontiac GTO. Some will argue that the GTO really wasn't anything new, but even if one feels that's the case, it's still difficult to ignore the fact that the Goat was a commercial success like nothing before it.
