[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive



JZD actually expected them to last at least 20 years,as for the 
leather used,it was the same stuff used in the Rolls Royce interior 
of that time period,but was claimed as a "full" leather 
interior...unlike the RR which had a full leather interior.
And Lotus DID have everything to do with the engineering of the 
complete Delorean and it's mechanics good or bad cheap parts or high 
quality parts.They were the ones that engineered into the Delorean 
the Worlds HARDEST to find "bin" parts for the Delorean...25 years 
later and some of these "bin" parts are of still unknown origin or 
very hard to get!! Lotus did NOT do the Delorean to the quality 
standards of their Esprit...from which the delorean was based 
from...far below it in it's engineering standards.
