I get what you're saying. But let's look at it another way, Escort and Cobra have been pretty successful over the years to the average users. To the average user who notices those V1 and Escort ads in car magazines all these years, both have been successful. You're speaking as enthusiast when you say had he done things differently. To the average user, who sees those ads, they are probably thinking that Escort and VR must be doing something right after all these years.

We'll never know how much more or less successful VR would have been had Mike done things differently. But it is possible that he could have been even more successful had he done things differently. As it is possible he could have been less successful had he done things differently. All you can really say is that his way (however unconventional it sometimes seems) certainly didn't prevent him from being successful, and may or may not have been the cause of his success.

You're talking in circles like a politician.

Couldn't you have just said no one how where he would be had he done things differently? -- Grammar police, please fix as needed.

Grammar police here on the scene :police3: . This is incoherent and makes absolutely no sense; I have no idea what you’re trying to say.

I think @Brainstorm69 post was very clear. He wasn’t contradicting himself or talking in circles. He said basically no one can say for sure if VR would’ve been more or less successful if they’d done things differently, but clearly the way they do things didn’t prevent them from succeeding.

But some patents have everything to do with products. LOL
Especially looking back at original transformational affects Cincinnati Microwave had back in history first coming out. Autotronics had super het with Super Snooper before Escort model. However, it was all the design, new patented processes, that moved this whole industry in gear last time. Similar for the first Passport. Same when MV came out with V1. He is a creature of habit. This does make a difference to him, agree with his methods or not.

Unless he has changed MO... All these patent efforts are not for his personal gratification only. Something is coming out of this. What he is focused on patent wise transformational? Not sure. However, it does make his future products further detached from the silly contract manufactured “crap” he will compete with. And we use today. Just like the old days of sheet metal riveted crap, and blinking light snooping vinyl wood trimmed crap was out there before the Escort.

So what's the point of stating the obvious? The wind could be coming from the east tomorrow, or perhaps the west. Either way, there might be some wind tomorrow, or maybe not. Please.

My original post was not directed to him, and my point was, it gets tiring hearing bozo's proclaim how they would do things so much better. Imho, Mike has earned the right to run his business the way he see's fit. He's done a pretty darned good job, and frankly doesn't give a crap what the peanut gallery thinks. I admire that.

And reserve this one for patent updates.

Thanks,
--Former Guilty party of de-railing the thread, beseaching others not to de-rail this thread.
