I haven't seen. any of this yet, but might try and watch it tomorrow morning. I haven't checked on Netflix here, but should be the same as yours, yes?

Wasn't bad at all. I don't think Zachary is much on his father. He was adopted?

I think its scary how close Colin Chapman was to destroying/muddying his legacy as a result of this. Even in this documentary he is a hairs breadth away from being framed as a prime suspect. It feels horrible to say, but if his passing hadn't happened when it did, he and his brilliant contributions to Motorsport might have been remembered in an entirely different light.

I recorded it when it was on back in April but only watched it last week.  I knew the headlines of the story but it was fascinating to learn more of the details.  Interesting to hear how loyal the Irish staff seemed to be, even after everything stopped.  DeLorean clearly had a lot of industry experience, connections and a bold vision which people mostly believed he could deliver.  I agree with Vanya about Colin Chapman's reputation being very close to being tarnished.

A great reminder too of what innovative cars they were, and the production methods too.  A large group of them attended a Goodwood event many years ago and were quite a sight in convoy driving in and parked up together.  I can't find any pictures from that, wonder if anyone has any?
