[DML] Re: Useless History - was Source for Struts



I disagree. The BIG question is "Why are you obsessed with P J
Grady?". I think it is GREAT that he works exclusively on Deloreans.
If you had to compete for his time with other kinds of cars, like most
shops, it could take even longer for your Delorean to be serviced. The
fact that his shop can thrive on just one limited kind of vehicle says
volumes about his business. People come from all over the country to
have work done in his shop!
