Nonostante la Germania gli abbia dato i natali e il cognome tradisca origini pugliesi, Floriano è cresciuto a Cecina (LI). Floriano Pagliara inizia a praticare il pugilato all'età di 15 anni presso la Boxe Cecina; un anno e otto mesi dopo disputa il suo primo incontro da dilettante ottenendo subito un successo. Da allora ben 55 incontri da dilettante (41 vittorie, 4 pareggi e 10 sconfitte), tra cui due con la maglia della nazionale italiana (2004). Nel palmares del pugile cecinese anche due vittorie del Torneo Internazionale di Cremona, 10 titoli regionali (dal 1995 al 2005) e due secondi posti ai campionati italiani assoluti.

He was best 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. John Zachary DeLorean was born on January 6, 1925 in Detroit, Michigan, the eldest of four sons of Zachary and Kathryn Pribak DeLorean.

He drms in a jazz band at night, then tours motorcycle shops by day. "But who would have imagined," he says, "that I'd be doing it in Shanghai!"Woody, 59, is a fixture at the Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel lounge, but his real claim to fame is a motorbike with sidecar on display in the lobby. The Chang Jiang is a Chinese knockoff of the classic 1930s BMW R-71. During World War II, the Germans gave the design to Russia, which passed it to China. Woody fell in love with it on a 1998 trip to Beijing. He bought one, and another. Soon, he had shops refurbishing them. Now he's a top vendor of the bikes, which have a global cult following. In 2003 he sold two dozen for about $10,000 each.
