Re: [DML] Middle East DeLoreans (was: Official export markets for the DeLorean)



Wrong. The Middle East cars were all January 82 builds - and mostly sequential so they were no singled out as "crap" cars. They *did* get fitted with a number of obsolete or superseded parts - earlier carpets, gray (vs silver) wheels. This was so the cars built for the US would be the latest spec. 

I'll correct your erroneous statements about Consolidated/DMC pricing agreements (with references) later when I am back at my desk.

>From what I understand..all the lessor(crap) cars were the ones that were exported to other places outside the USA..since the Markets there were slim or very spartan..and JZD had no established dealer networks..

Since there was a point in time when DMC was desperate to unload the Deloreans..and they had them stockpiled everywhere..in fact I remember that he sold a LOT of them to Kapac (or Consolidated International)and every time a Dealer sold a Delorean they were actually..buying them back from Kapac at a huge loss.

Not a way to run a Business..
