Yes, and everything written in print about the DeLorean is true.

Not quite.  The first Tucker used a highly modified Olds front-engine frame as a base.  Not much else remained of the Oldsmobile.  They used lots of donor parts from various cars and pounded out the steel bodywork by hand.  Keep mind, this was a post-war time when supplies were hard to come by.  This in no way compares to DeLorean using a Fiat to kick some drive train ideas around.
