[DML] Re: Where are they now - reprise

The problem for Ed is that while his patronage gradually sells their 
cars or the cars simply wear out he is not recruiting new business 
for the future. The first Delorean I looked at before 2277 was an 83 
with 230,000 miles on it serviced by Ed its entire life, this car 
will not last forever and the owner was selling it so that equals 
less business for D1. His business model is not sustainable, there 
are not as many loaded people driving Deloreans as there are buying 
jeans. He will eventually go bankrupt or retire, which I guess might 
be his plan anyway. Simple economics.

There is no question that people have been treated very badly and 
unprofessionally.   Just understand.. Ed doesn't care.   If he has 
gotten this bad there must be some reason why,  perhaps it's because 
he must now buy parts from his former business partner who has a 
thriving successful operation and opening more service facilities.   
D1, for all of us is a distant memory and not a player in the minds 
of the majority of the community because of Ed's switch to a 
more "isolationist" business model.
