Re: [DML] Re: Question about SSI numbers



Chris,
 
I came across a photo of my car sitting at the docks in Belfast with a bunch of its brothers just before being shipped to the US.  I believe it was on the first shipment over to be sold to the first owner in July (after the dealer had fun putting 400 miles on it).  You can see the styrofoam bumper on the car that says "1063-M".  
 
Thanks to Rob Lamrock who dug up a digital copy and sent it to me!  In the same photo, you can see several other early VINs as referenced by Mike Substelny in the archives.  The photo was featured on the cover of a DeLorean World magazine years ago.

Some list subscribers who are not DOA members have asked me about the cars on 
the latest DW cover. The numbers I can make out are:
860,996,1008,1063 and maybe 1038.

Typically this picture will have been enlarged and cropped, so the original photo 
(from Robert Lamrock) probably showed even more cars. Most of the cars that are 
shown face the wrong direction, hiding the VIN number. So maybe my car is in that 
picture and I just can't tell . . . <snip>"
 
Anybody else got one?  The funny thing is, I never seem to see any pics of 82s or 83s like this.  Maybe the excitement of taking pictures then was over...
