John Z. DeLorean Dies.

Just heard on the news that John Z. DeLorean died early this morning after suffering a stroke yesterday. He was 80 years old. Often referred to as the "father" of the original 1964 GTO while at GM. Sorry to hear of his death and just wanted to pass the info. on to other Pontiac affectionadoes.

I know this is an old post but I don't get on line to often. I think that DeLorean was a great visionary. This will probably bring a lot of people up in arms but that is what I believe. I believe that he was indeed set up because of his ideas. Just like Tucker, he could not overcome what was done to him, and that is too bad.

Wasn't he also busted for selling dope?
Not my American idol, GTOI or no.
