[DMCForum] Re: ATTN: Jim S



I find it wholly appropriate that you used the rotary engine because
supposedly JZD tried to buy a GM rotary prototype that was destined
for the corvette. Needless to say, GM didn't sell the patent to JZD
and the engine was shelved and never made it into production
[corvettes].

So...in a wierd way you did what was supposed to happen in the first
place.
