      So, according to this documentary....
      An American-Jew scammer teamed up with a lazy-Canadian liberal work force.

      .....Hard to say what went wrong here.

      In 1976 I graduated from high school and m parents offered me a car, a Brickland, or a motorcycle. I got a 1965 Harley, best decision I ever made.

      Their first mistake was trusting a guy who wears sunglasses at an indoor press conference.

      Glaring early warning signs aside, even if that car had been totally successful from an engineering and manufacturing standpoint, it was at best a niche vehicle, completely impractical for the vast majority of potential customers. After the initial excitement has worn off, where do you go from there to grow the business, foster repeat business (customer loyalty), and increase your customer base? As so many other automotive start-ups have found over the years, once you exhaust the initial energy behind the project and the people who bought into the hype and had to have The Next New Thing have made their purchase, then what? You can't survive on building just a quirky two-seater niche car. Would there have been a Bricklin sedan, station wagon/SUV, entry level hatchback, mini van, or pickup truck? Of course not. Even under the best of circumstances it was a vanity project that was doomed to failure.

      As the old joke goes, how do you make a small fortune in the auto industry? Start with a large fortune.

      I just saw one on a back road north of Scranton, Pennsylvania. I saw that bumper, but couldn't remember the make. It wasn't a show car, it was just sitting there with a bunch of other 70s and 80s cars.

      In Spring '75 I graduated from college in Washington, DC, and was looking for a cheap way home to Seattle. At that time dealerships would hire college students to drive cars to new owners outside the dealership's region. I found a help wanted ad on campus for someone to drive a car to Seattle. They paid only $50, and I was responsible for buying gas, but it was still cheaper than plane fare.



      When I got to the dealership, I was given the keys to a white Bricklin, which I'd never heard of. I drove it off the dealer's lot and the next day started a five day trek across the midwest and north through Colorado and Wyoming. I had no money for motels, so slept on roadsides and bathed in creeks.



      The car drew a crowd everywhere I stopped, especially when I opened the gull-wing doors. But the supreme moment of ecstasy behind the wheel came when I drove through Yellowstone Nat'l Park the day after they'd opened the main north-south roads for the summer season. The park was absolutely empty. The Bricklin had a Ford 351ci engine, and it BOOGIED! Soon after entering the park a late-model Chevy Malibu joined me on a game of high-speed follow the leader until we descended into Montana and parted ways. That was 45 years ago, and to this day stands as the best road trip I've ever driven. The car performed flawlessly for me.

      @Lynx Star Automotive I remember in the early '80s after the news broke about John Delorean but before BTTF came out. His name was synonymous with sleazy con artist. Investors wanted to hang him from the nearest tree.

      The power of mindless pop culture mentality. If instead of a Delorean they had used a Bricklin in Back to the Future, perception of them would be completely reversed. Funny thing is, the time machine in BTTF was originally going to be a refrigerator, but they were afraid of lawsuits if kids shut themselves in refrigerators trying to imitate the movie.

      He took money for cars that were never delivered other investors lost money, also did you listen to the video? I remember seeing him in the news years back in the 2000s about starting another company or some jazz like that.

      34:25 Particularly liked it, when he said that American car production workers work hard, but Canadian and European ones don't. I'm guessing, that he's never actually worked in a vehicle production plant, outside of either Detroit or New Brunswick...

      My 44 year old Bricklin is still running strong and very reliable. Drive it cross country getting thumbs up and smiles from everyone. This car was produced as less cost than most other cars during this time period. He just didn't have the right investors and GM, Ford, Chrysler wanted him to go away.
