Toirtis must be away on holiday or some such thing, therefore...I'll give another:

"I was born on January 6, 1925, in Detroit, Michigan. I grew up during the depression. My father had worked in the local Ford Factory. I studied engineering at the Lawrence Institute of Technology where I graduated with a degree. My first job was for Packard Motor Car Company and then the Chrysler Corporation. Later, I joined General Motors. At General Motors, I gained fame for the Pontiac GTO. I was promoted to the position of directing General Motors North American operations.

I left GM in 1973 due to some philosophical problems regarding a revoluntary car I had designed. It seemed that GM didn't believe the vehicle was marketable in the United States. The car had a stainless steel body, two seats and futurist doors. I sought out investors and set up my own company in Northern Ireland.

From the beginning there were problems. Sales of the new (and only vehicle) didn't meet any of our expectations. The company eventually moved towards financial collapse and went bankrupt in 1983. I was arrested once on suspicion of drug trafficking in order to help solve the financial woes of the company but was later acquitted.

What's truly amazing is, although the car never reached the level of fame I had wished for it through sales, it became famous for some silly movie about time travel".

Who am I?

I know who that is JC. I watched a movie on the whole car thing when I was a freshman in college. Pretty interesting. The Dalorean guy or however you spell that. Right? I'll rack my brain for a couple hours trying to get his name.

Yup, John DeLorean.

Congrats and you're up!

I was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago Illinois, to my father, an Irish-Canadian, and my mother, who was of German-American descent. I was one of five children, four boys and a girl.

During the fall of 1918, I attempted to enlist for military service but was rejected because I was under age, only sixteen years old at the time. Instead, I joined the Red Cross and was sent overseas to France, where I spent a year driving an ambulance and chauffeuring Red Cross officials. My ambulance was covered from stem to stern, not with stock camouflage, but something that I am later known for.

Once I returned from France, I began producing short animated films for local businesses, in Kansas City. By the time I had started to create The Alice Comedies, which was about a real girl and her adventures in an animated world, I ran out of money, and my company Laugh-O-Grams went bankrupted.

On July 13, 1925, I married one of my first employees, Lillian Bounds, in Lewiston, Idaho. Later on we would be blessed with two daughters, Diane and Sharon. Three years after I wed Lilly, I created a new animated character that I will always be associated with.

Too easy? Who Am I?
