[DML] Re: New DeLorean Book...Maybe a Movie! Wow!!



I have to agree with James on this one. Where are we supposed to know
where fantasy begins, and where it ends. Especially if suddenly JZD
who was a known health-nut is now portrayed as an alcoholic. Instead
of raising awareness, that's just another damn inaccuracy taken as
fact that I now have to fight.

On top of that, if this does become an actual movie (I can't seem to
find the title on IMDB, let alone tied to anyone's names), we're going
to be subject to the director's vision. And if he/she doesn't like JZD
or our cars, then people WILL be displayed a negative viewpoint that
they will then take as fact.

Doing a little digging on this "psuedo-Kato Kaelin", I found a couple
of articles.

This is just lovely. No, I don't want to literally judge a book by
it's cover, but if what I'm reading here is correct, this is bad news.
So now instead of John DeLorean being this engineering type, who
educates himself about business and strikes out to start his own
company, he's now nothing more than akin to a lowly investment banker?
He had no desire to actually build a car at all, and didn't care what
it was that made him money? People are going to read this and
associate the DMC-12 with nothing more than a MacGuffin. That it was
just a tool for JZD to swindle money away from investors. Especially
since now according to this book we see JZD as some sort of reckless
"deal-maker" being compared to the same types of unpopular ones in the
news now related to the nation's current real estate crisis. Instead
of JZD's bad business decisions, or economic conditions, now he was
just meant to undo himself because his whole motivation was greed with
everything else being damned. Great. This will kill any positive image
of the man, and will simply land us more and far worse criticism and
harassment from people heckling us with innacuracies. At least time
erased previous memories and allowed us the chance to reeducate people
on the facts. This book will destroy all that. It's a work of fiction
that people will take as fact.

We won't ever find out the whole truth about JZD, DMC, and many other
things. We can only speculate. But at least when I and others
speculate we make it repeatedly clear that what we're saying is of our
own opinions and not absolute fact. Unlike this hack author who simply
wants to lump things together to make a quick buck at the cost of our
marque.
