Farmington Hills, MI: Thomson Gale, 2007. In 1964, got the bright idea to drop the Pontiac 389 cubic inch V-8 into the mid-size Tempest, thus was born the Pontiac G.T.O. DeLorean received a February 1969 promotion to head the Chevrolet Motor Division – he ended up streamlining the production line by delaying the release of the second generation Camaro (introduced April 1970) and a moratorium on product lifecycle management (later used with mass market automobiles where the automobile product marketed is restyled, rebodied, and/or facelifted every few years) with the Corvette and Nova (the Nova (X-body) received a midcycle refresh for the 1973 model year with a hatchback bodystyle – DeLorean proposed this for the Pontiac GTO prior to 1969 where its executives vetoed the proposal).
During his tenure with Chevrolet he had oversight with the Chevrolet Vega subcompact where he assigned quality control inspectors until the Lordstown, OH assembly plant was taken over by GM (c. October 1971) where Chevrolet no longer operated the facility – GM corporate brass ended up cutting spending costs, laying off close to 1000 workers which resulted in the Vega tarnishing GM’s reputation (from corrosion issues, reliability of the aluminum cylinder bores (which were unsleeved and consuming motor oil), overheating, and production speed (the Vega production increased when the work schedule has 73.5 automobiles produced within an hour where the United Auto Workers allegedly stated that workers sabotaged the cars on the assembly line including a March 1972 strike). UPDATE: Last night, Kathryn wrote a response to this post. In fact, she is pissed. I had to watch the whole goddamn episode for that quote.

We know that now. Biography in: “The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives”.
However, the market had slumped due to economic recession and the result was financial trouble, which led to the company being dissolved. You and Kathryn were dealt some really rotten cards. “There are many wonderful chapters and a few pretty awful ones. But I didn't explain to them what happened with my father yet, because it wasn't an every day reality like it was when I was growing up. So stomping mad, in fact, that she has taken to The Internet to complain about it. Also, she can just tell her kids Grandpa was entrapped by an evil FBI or something and he did nothing wrong, so I guess you could do that. The car had numerous delays and wasn’t released until 1981. After their 1973 wedding they lived a high-society fairy tale with their two young children, Zachary and Kathryn—residing in a 20-room Fifth Avenue duplex so high in the sky that she could see all of Central Park. Since then, Ferrare has gone on to host other series on ABC, the Family Channel, and the Hallmark Channel. During this time, he travelled to various events around the world and enjoyed celebrity status, which was nonconformist among General Motor executives, and it led to him clashing with the others. After Ferrare first saw the trailer for Framing John DeLorean, she broke into tears. “Your father is shamed and goes to jail,” Kathryn says at one point in the film, recapping what she experienced as a child. Her original comments have since been deleted, but her additional complaints have not: So yeah, like I said, she's pissed. Kathryn DeLorean should be proud that her father and his company are still seen as a relevant cultural reference. You need to cry.
Her husband, Anthony Thomopoulos, told her the outpouring of emotion made sense. First, a little background.
Troubled by less-than-stellar business practices, even worse sales, and an ongoing conflict in Northern Ireland where the cars were made, the DeLorean Motor Company was fighting against the tide just to start. His third marriage was to model Cristina Ferrare in 1977 until 1985 with whom he had a daughter.
I also acknowledge that the statement was not untrue, it was a statement of fact. To revisit this article, select My Account, then View saved stories.
", The DeLorean DMC-12, despite its "Back To The Future" buzz and scintillating stainless steel skin,…. Among the series of significant events that Cristina Ferrare has experienced in her life is a battle with cancer. However, many other executives didn’t like that possibility, and the continued clash led to him resigning the following year. This show highly promoted their recent episode with the Delorean, only to drag it and my father through the mud. To have them all turn and face the camera and say "BUT SURELY IN THE FUTURE HE WILL BE ACQUITTED!"
Yeah, he was arrested, but yeah, he was acquitted. John DeLorean was arrested by the FBI for a cocaine deal.
The Goldbergs referenced this whole incident this week, when one character damages his DeLorean and needs it repaired.
