Re: [DML] Re: Question about SSI numbers


I agree with James on this one.  Especially since 1897
was built in June (not july) of 81.  I haven't seen
1897 at all, but I have seen 1997 (also a black
interior auto built june of 81).  I have pics of 1997
if anyone is interested.  The reason I have them is
1997 was for sale a few years back and I almost bought
it.  Some other VIN#'s can be seen on DeLoreans at the
factory in various pictures and videos.  It would be
interesting if anyone on the list owns one of them.
