    I remember reading about that.
    Very sad to see such a waste.
    I am guessing they got a better tax write-off by destroying them instead of donating them.
    Follow the money, eh?

    Crocker was forced to do the same thing by the U.S. government after WWII in order to pay his debts when the rationing board cut off his allotment of steel and iron.
    History (sort of) repeats itself.

    This one had such a nice... smile, I had to pin her up in my virtual pool room. Her original side is on the other wall.

    Terrible waste, but a sound business decision.

    The Watchless was an early example of badge engineering, but still a fine bike. Yet many old timers insist that the other sister marque to the Matchless - the Crotchless - was the most alluring of all. Apparently a pretty girl astride a Crotchless was a real head-turner...

    You could have asked Maria Schneider, his costar in the sodomy scene in "Last Tango in Paris", but unfortunately she's now gone.
