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





JZD's main failure is that he wanted to become a sort of GE(General 
Electric)and to branch out into different businesses,as was seen with 
his snow grooming vehicle/aircraft tug/future bus/trying to buy out 
ailing car manufacturing business....everything but staying on track 
with his core business the Delorean,of course other factors played in 
his Business demise,such as building a GM size factory for a Lotus 
size business,burning monies as if he was Still working at GM,(aka 
Park Ave HQ)production output as again,as if working at 
GM,overpricing his product for the times,and at the wrong time 
era,and not making it a global product,poor press/goverment 
relations,A poor choice in making it a one product company/one style 
car..had he had the option for a Convertible/Normal doors,T-
Tops,PAINT..it would have detracted from it's other problems,namely 
being underpowered,and the the Man himself JZD did not help things 
out with the coke deal..that could have been handled without ending 
the way it did!
