[DML] Re: The first 500 to 560 series cars built Preproduction



The initial intent of my post was to inform others of the findings
regarding actual build chronology of 500 series cars and not to
begin discussions on a whole bunch of other related or non-related
issues about "intent" behind the "pre" and early production cars.

Although most of the 500 series cars ended up as engineering cars,
there was no plan in place before production was started to make
a specific number of DeLoreans into engineering cars.  There would
be no reason to plan to make exactly 61 cars pre-production.

SSI has plenty of references to many of the first 100 to 500 cars
having such poor fit and finish that they were parked along a back
fence, without being given a specific purpose for any future use.
Many of these cars became the engineering cars after the fact.

As I mentioned in my post, there will be time before, during and
after DCS 2006 to share info and discuss these topics further.

Looking forward to compiling some good, solid research in this area.

Later,
Rich W.
