while he had some business management issues for some, he was a great innovator at a time when there weren't too many vendors. He'll be missed

It's so sad to see such a news this morning.
John was always ready to help people on their car.
He will be missed.

RIP John.

Yes, in the very early days John helped us out with parts.

Overtime I think he did suffer some business management issues as you say Dermot.

But he still came up with some useful ideas/parts and his photos on his site were always helpful.

It's always sad to lose a member of the Delorean community regardless of any disagreements that may have happened in the past.

As alister said, he did deliver some parts in the early days, I seem to remember a number of us having his radiators on our cars back in the day.
