[DML] Re: DeLorean was going to be president for Bricklin?!?!



I mentioned this(what you just mentioned) about 5-6 years ago on the 
DML,but it just got lost in the shuffle of postings on the DML(it's 
in there somewhere)I always said that is WHY JZD quit to start his 
own car business,the Bricklin put the"seed" in his head to start his 
own gullwing DSV safety Vehicle...Even the time line fits in 
there..he Basically used the Bricklin as a MODEL for his car....TO DO 
THE OPPOSITE of the Bricklin(engine in the back,no hide away 
lights,no tan interior,no fiberglass body panels...but fiberglass 
body,v6 instead of a v8...no paint,as the Bricklin,but instead with 
bolt on panels...you get the idea.
