Re: [DML] JZD's Drug Trial



Even if JZD hadn't screwed the British, he still ruined Walter Avrea's life (Saf-Gard) and Clark Higley's life (Pine Creek). The man was quite the opposite of an admirable person. Putting John DeLorean on a pedestal makes a mockery of positive role models.

And other than securing the funds, and forcing Lotus' designs down Collins and Loasby's throats, JZD hd precious little to do with these little cars. He can take credit for the rear louvers and the toll booth windows, but little else. Just as JZD did not design the GTO, he did not design the DMC-12 either. 

I am just as passionate about both my DeLoreans as you are about yours, but my passion is in spite of JZD, not because of him.

This discussion of the past intentions and or guilt of jzd should be ended. We are on this list because we all love the Delorean automobile. Not because we are lawyers. Who gives a rats butt about here-say or subjective opinions about John. We weren't there. You didn't walk a mile in his shoes. He created a car from his dream. We all are living his dream.
