Re: [DML] DMCH to build Pontiac Solstice?



For the most part I agree. However, most brands do have common design  
trademarks. It would be cool to offer a stainless steel paint color  
option and continue with John's use of corrosion resistant parts,  
perhaps use aluminum body panels. You also don't want it to look like  
a Pontiac, it needs to be a DeLorean product.

I wonder if Steven Wynn has thought about taking DMC public to help  
fund this project. If so I would buy in. You can also sign me up for  
the new Pontiac/DeLorean. I wonder what they will call it? DMC-35  
($35,000 Pontiac)
