Re: [DML] Re: Was it all a dream? Looking for DML archives from 1997

I always thought of the car Tony now owns at

However, for the other cars which is correct,
"Pre-Production" or "Pilot".

I like to call them "Pilot", which is what Alistair
calls his car, "Pilot-25".

Is there such a thing as "Pre-Production"?  I know
Claude always claimed 570 was "Pre-Production" but the
term seemed meaningless.

Either way, I agree..  Any of us who are lucky enough
to care for a piece of DeLorean history should cherish
them...  Do I need to stop driving the Legend TT?
