[DML] Re: Digest Number 4740

Like any business the first priority in manufacturing an automobile 
is to keep the cost at the manufacturing level as low as possible and 
still meet the duribility and quality level desired. To design a 
vehicle that requires every part to be engineered vehicle specific 
just doesn't make sense. For example the Girling brake master 
cylinder is used in other vehicles, the Saab 900 comes to mind, but 
the rear engine configuration of the DeLorean required that the 
cylinder be modified with bias toward that configuration. The reverse 
running climate control blower motor that you used as an example 
was actualy used in that configuration in at least one GM car.It's 
entertaining to talk about "conspiracy" theory's but the ultimate 
goal of DMC was to produce and sell an automobile for profit. They 
failed for a number of reasons including some that were beyond their 
control. Taking the time and expense to make every part unique to the 
DeLorean beyond design necessities makes no sense.
