Re: [DML] Can we ALL come to a correct definition of these DeLorean terms?

prototype (NOUN):

1. An original type, form, or instance serving as a
basis or standard for later stages. 
2. An original, full-scale, and usually working model
of a new product or new version of an existing
3. An early, typical example. 

While I agree that the Fiat *IS* an important part of
the DeLorean history, I don't see how it fits in to
any of the dictionary definitions of "Prototype"..  Or
course, this may open the debate on the definition of
"original"!  (OH NO!!)

Did Bill Collins use the word "prototype"?  Or did
Robert Lamm?  

Did'nt Bill call Proto1 the first prototype?

Either way, I'd say whoever selected the word
"prototype" to describe the Fiat made an error.
