    Thanks for sharing this notification.

    That's a grand bit of Nick's story he shares in the link. I have certainly enjoyed reading his fine book.

    We owe Nick and the entire DMCL team many thanks for the unprecedented effort and results against tight scheduling and money constraints. They truly broke the record for taking a car from concept to full production at at greenfield site.

    Thanks for sharing. I also enjoyed reading Nick's book several years ago when it first was published.

    Does anyone know what happened to Chuck Bennington? His level of involvement with DeLorean being what it was, I think he would be a wealth of historical knowledge provided he's still with us.

    I believe Barrie Wills may have mentioned that Chuck had passed away. I reached out to him for confirmation.

    No problem. I'm sure he had several stories from his time at DMC.
