RE: [DML] Re: DMC in the news



At the DMCH open house a couple of months back, James commented on this
topic during the warehouse tour and the question of fenders and torsion bars
was raised.

James clearly pointed out that those parts are "out there" and are available
in limited quantities if you want to spend the money.  For the few count of
these parts that they would need in order to produce an entire car, they can
get them from donor cars and junkers that are already in hand, or found
regularly, etc.

When anyone says "I need a torsion bar" or "I need a fender" the argument is
not that there are NONE out there.  It's really that "There are none out
there that I want to pay a lot of money for"   ;)

Law of Supply and Demand.  Supply is short, demand generates a higher then
average price.   If you really want/need it, you can get it.  It just comes
down to how much it is worth to you and what is your limit for spending.

Does this mean that there is going to be production of currently unavailable
items such as the front fender and drivers torsion bar?
