[DML] JZD article, David E. Davis, Automobile magazine article was tasteles




According to my records, I spoke to David E. Davis in November 1997. I  
called and left a VM and he called my office back and left a VM. Eventually,  after 
some small car talk, I spoke with him about the "Dare to  Dream" interview 
that I was helping JZD with. His mood changed, in my  opinion.
 
 He pointed out that the DMC-12 has been rejected by car collectors  thus 
far, (ha) and what was interesting to him, was the fact that the DMC  is a good 
used car, and will never be a serious collectors item,  similar to some 
Porsches and Maserati's. He did have some interesting things to  say about the 
DeLorean car clubs that were around at the time. Not  interested in the video, end 
of conversation. I sent the video to him anyway,  and I never received a reply 
if he watched it.
 
When I spoke to JZD about the conversation, he informed me that It has  been 
reported that Dottie Cole, wife of the retired  GM President Ed Cole & Detroit 
Society figure, hated  DeLorean and they never get along. 
 
 He went on, and in a very tongue & cheek manner replied,  who were Dottie's 
girlfriends'  married to, and what did their  husbands do for a living? Work 
at an advertising agency, or car magazine?
 
What is interesting,  David E. Davis and Jean Lindamood-Jennings  (anther 
Automobile Magazine writer) wrote nice articles about DeLorean in  the 1960's 
1970's and 1981. 
 
When development testing began on the Legend car project (I wish the  spy 
photographs of the Legend cars undergoing development tests would turn  up) and 
the car was launched in 1981, the automotive enthusiast  magazines changed 
their points of view about, the DMC car, JZD, and the  company in late 1981.
 
Just as an aside, one of the only positive articles written about the car,  
when new,  was the December 1981 Road & Track issue...and the author is  
nameless/ananamous...check it out.
 
Sincerely Yours,
Mike Pack
