RE: [DML] Re: JZD article

I musta missed the post with the article.  Can someone link me to a copy of 
this or tell me where to find it?  I can only read posts in my emails 
because it'll never let me log on at the actual site.

Without reading the article but reading all of the posts about it here's my 

I feel that John DeLorean was a man well ahead of his time.  His innovations 
and ideas for the future were brilliant and I believe that had fate not 
dealt him the hand it did he would not have stepped out of the spotlight so 

He was infact a businessman and a brilliant engineer.  I suppose there are 
people out there (like the writter of the controversial article you all are 
talking about) who do not think very highly of John Zachary Delorean...

...but we do.

For the car and the dreams he gave us we are forever greatful.  For all our 
lives he has made a difference.  He took our dreams of SS and gave them 
wheels and made them something tangible.  For it was HIS dream to create the 
car but it quickly became our dream when he pulled it out of the realm of 
fantasy to become something we could all see.

I think that JZD knew he made a difference for all of us.  How many owners 
are left out there?  7,000?  How many enthusiasts?  Twice or three times 
that?  How many people come up to you at a gas station to admire the car, 
full of wonder and question?  Infinite

For that I think his dream will always live on for it's ours now and it's 
our responsibility to keep it going.  I believe John is resting...probably 
reclining back in the seat of Proto 1, eyes closed, and imagining what the 
future holds for us down here and what we're going to do with what he 
built...with what he started.  Or maybe he's thinking back...remembering the 
good times and just staying in those moments.

People who write negatively about anything or anyone can never take it back. 
  It isn't mere words anymore.  I look forward to reading the article only 
to see what you all have been discussing.  But don't let it bother you guys. 
  It's just one mans opinions and bad as they may be he is entitled to them. 
  Don't forget though, next year all of us are coming together in 
celebration of the the man, the company and the car.  I think our opinions 
are the only ones that truly matter and ours will always hold John Zachary 
DeLorean with the highest regard.
