RE: [DML] before the internet & another N.Y. Times article



Claude,

I tried to reply to your post but my answer was rejected. I was told "We've
been cracking down on personal commentary and this, from anyone else, would
cross the line." Apparently your derogatory post about me was considered
fair and objective. I really like this particular moderator but I don't
think it's fair to allow what some of my friends/customers consider a
personal attack go unanswered and because of this I'll try again. BTW the
moderator would "prefer to kill the topic altogether". He also said two more
"vender bashing" posts from you were rejected in the meantime...how nice! I
wonder who they were both about. Please let me say SOMETHING. Any one who's
interested can find a lot of information about your dealings with me in the
archives and they will easily figure out your motivations. I tried to say
you have an "axe to grind" and explain the reasons but that is what got me
bounced. 
Your question is obviously of little interest to the group so I won't bother
to explain the reasons my family sold the franchise in 1982 but anyone
interested could e-mail me personally to find out. I doubt they will because
there are no skeletons in that closet to make it interesting. I also wasn't
handed anything as I started with more debt than assets and worked my way up
from there. I've invested far more than you'll ever know in the DeLorean
marque and resent your insinuations. As far as "evolving down" it would
appear you are more of a Chevy guy than a DeLorean man so perhaps you're on
the wrong mailing list. You don't even own one anyway and your tech advice
and spelling leave a lot to be desired! I know this will really set you off,
as will ANYTHING I have to say, but the moderators will hopefully restrain
you a little more next time. I think your post was personally derogatory and
a thinly veiled attack. I am considering unsubscribing from the DML if your
relentless long term attacks are allowed to continue and I definitely will
if this gets rejected.
I am DMC dealer in same way a used car dealer is as I have a license to sell
cars and have been a DeLorean specialist for a quarter century as of this
coming March. Would you prefer they call themselves "used car vendors" too!
I don't really care for the term vendor because, at least here in New York,
the term is used for primarily for hot dog stands and ice cream trucks!
Maybe you would call them "hot dog dealers" and reserve the term vendor for
purveyors of fine automobiles. Just kidding... I'm trying to lighten things
up with a little humor. I hope it doesn't get me banned the moderator is
cracking down on humor too:) 

Sincerely,

Rob Grady,

P.J.Grady

DeLorean One? Actually P.J.Grady predates D 1 and probably everyone 
else as we signed on as a DeLorean dealer in the late seventies, when I was
in college, and waited three years before receiving cars for sale in 1981.
We were a Chevrolet dealer at the time and my brother Paul met John Z. at a
dealer sales presentation when the company was trying to enlist
dealers.........
With the demise of DeLorean Cadillac last April we are probably the 
only remaining original dealer still selling and servicing these fine old
cars.



  No disrespect,but how did a Chevy dealership,evolve,down to being 
just a Delorean only repair shop,and was the business handed down 
from father to son,which is nice,But "still" not  "scratch started"  
by the present owner, basically what I am trying to say, unlike DMCH 
(and others)which was(were) started from a dream and a major 
financial risk from the, and by the owner(s),from the get go as a 
Delorean only business,but from what I am understanding  from your 
post your business evolved down from a  National chain Chevy 
Dealership/DMC Dealership,down to a Northeast Delorean repair 
shop.Was the DMC fallout a cause of this? What happened to the Chevy 
part of the dealership,or is that part still in business.Technically 
you can't be a DMC dealer,if the manufacturer is no longer in 
business,otherwise my local "ex" DMC Dealer(Gengras Motors which is 
still in business) can claim the same thing, but the understanding of your
posting is understood ,as the last of the original sellers,that did Not give
up on the DMC car.
