    Describes mystery, fraud, and failure, so is completely different from Elio, except for the 3-wheeler which gets 70mpg.

    The Lady and the Dale - the film traces the story of Elizabeth Carmichael, who rose to prominence when she released a fuel-efficient three-wheeled vehicle during the 1970s gas crisis. As she wins over major carmakers and investors, a web of mystery unfolds regarding the car’s technology and Carmichael’s surprising past. A portrait of an extraordinary entrepreneur’s rise and eventual fall, the series explores a one-of-a-kind story of fraud, family, and identity. Premieres on HBO Jan 31, 2021

    Hey, if Paul is following in those footsteps, maybe he's getting a sex change so we won't recognize him when he shows his face again?

    DirecTV 281 MTHD has a new series, Seduced by Speed.
    S1 E1 was about the Dale and "Elizabeth Carmichael".
    No other showings are scheduled at this time.
    Sign up for the series, all episodes and maybe you can catch a rebroadcast.

    S1 E2 was about John DeLorean.
    That one will be rebroadcast Sat, Feb 27 and Sun Feb 28.
    S1 E3 will be about Jerry Wiegert and his Vector W8 supercar.

    The one hour Dale documentary was very interesting and well done.
    I lived through that period but had totally forgotten about it.

    No Dales were ever produced and owned by the public.
    There were only a few prototypes built.
    Three-wheeled, cost less than $2,000, 70 miles per gallon.
    Uh oh. Sound familiar?
