I was reading about the Lozier automobile today and on several sites were noted that Lozier tried to merge with Ford in 1915, prior to the company's file for bankruptcy. Does anyone know the details on why the merger failed. Ford eventually did purchase an expensive line with Lincoln in the 1920s (due to Edsel's persuasion, I think), so one can assume that it wasn't beyond the scope of the company.
