Re: [DML] The DeLorean Story book - a few more copies available

I got my book a few days ago, and I tore through it in a matter of two or
three evenings.  I found it very interesting, and I would rate it as a
must-own for DeLorean enthusiasts, along with Stainless Steel Illusion.

Nick does a great job of painting the bigger picture of life in the UK, and
Northern Ireland in particular during DeLorean's era there.  Doing so gives
you a much better idea of how important this project was to the people.  I
certainly got a sense of this while talking to the former employees at the
factory, but I think the people of that area tend to be far too polite to
go on about how bad daily life had gotten.

You also get to meet all the characters involved with the formation of DMC
and great detailed information on each aspect of the car.

I've got to send out a huge thanks to Nick for taking the time to share
this with all of us, and another to everyone who helped Nick along the way
(I know of James Espey, Matt Sommer, Rich Weissensel, and Tony Swann to
name a few).  I'm sure it was a massive undertaking, and I hope Nick knows
that is was truly worth it.

It's a nice, hard-back book with some photos that I've never seen before.
Oh, and mine even has a nice inscription and signature from Nick included!
Go gicha some.
