[DML] Re: DCS 2008 + DeLorean Archive = The Fairy Tree



I have been collecting DMC material for the past 20+ years and am
personal friends with many former executives, employees and others
related to DMC and, up to now, I have kept my mouth shut regarding the
failure of DMC.  Honestly, it was John's own greed that destroyed the
company.  No more, no less.  No conspiracy.  No evil person or group.
 No menacing government.  No tree.  It was simply greed for money and ego.

Those who have seen the museum know that I have acquired thousands of
documents, many from DMC itself along with many of a more personal
nature (diaries, notes, etc) from former executives.  Don't kid
yourselves...John was no saint and wanted nothing more than to take
DMC public in order to make his convertible partnership shares worth
millions.

My goal with the museum was to give an interesting look into the car
as a whole from inception to end, not to rehash the dirt, however, I
am tired of hearing the 'saint' type comments when it comes to JZD. 
My advice for those who disagree with me is to read all of the books
(minus his autobiography which is amusing at best) mesh everything
together and this will give you a realistic picture of went went wrong.

I'm sure I'm stirring up a hornets nest with these comments, but what
the heck.
