Re: [DML] BTF car(s).

If I?m interpreting the information which Tom Tait gave us, the movie studio went out and bought a car to pass off as the original BTF car when in fact it wasn?t. It was just a car they bought, and presumably transformed to look like the BTF car, so that they could reap some publicity off of it. So, in reality, the car which Tom Tait says he bought is really not the original car used to make any of the BTF cars but just one they used to advertise the movie.


I don?t want to imply that the car which Tom Tait bought is worth less because of that; I merely want to be sure I understand what transpired there. I would imagine the rest of us on this list would like to know the true and accurate story as well. 


Because of what Tom told us, my question still stands, what did happen to the original car or cars used in the movies? Does anyone know? 


My original question was prompted by a claim by someone who says he bought the original BTF car and is restoring it. He did not identify himself as Tom. I have not yet seen the car but I do know where he lives, hence my desire to know where, or approximately where Tom Tait lives.  


Might there be several cars out there claiming to be BTF originals? I?m beginning to wonder.
