The Audacious Plan to Save DeLorean in 1982

This is an interesting read on the background attempts to save DeLorean Motor Car company back in 1982.

I remember John Sawruk talking about a conversation he had with DeLorean just before JZD died. Now we will never know if this is true or not, but it would certainly explain DeLorean's actions.

According to Sawruk, the "investors" DeLorean ended up dealing with were in fact cocaine dealers. John wanted to back out of the deal entirely but these dealers threatened to kill John's daughter if he didn't go forward with the deal, which he did and he was subsequently arrested by the FBI. I suspect DeLorean kept quiet about this blackmail issue for fear of reprisals against his family. Again, I doubt any of this will ever be proven and it will be treated as nothing more than hear-say but it certainly would (to a degree) exonerate DeLorean for his actions.
