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


As someone who's been prototyping products for decades, I want to 
blab about this.

Tony Ierardi's (sorry if I botched the spelling) Proto 1 is, in my 
mind, the most important Delorean in the world.  

The defining characteristics of the Delorean, the things that endear 
it to owner and non-owner admirer alike, the things that made me 
instantly want it, seem to be the exterior design elements, that is, 
the gull wing doors, the low styling, the stainless steel color.  
Nobody ever walks up to my Delorean as says:  "Wow, how cool is that 
engine" or anything like that.  

Proto 1 is the first car that embodies these defining traits, so it 
deserves top billing.

Anybody can call the Fiat a prototype.  The variety of definitions 
for the word prototype are varied.  You could call the Fiat a drive-
train prototype.  You could call Proto 1 a styling prototype.  
Technically that may be correct.  In fact, I could call MY Delorean a 
prototype if I felt like it, though I'm unclear what exactly one 
would consider it a prototype of :-)

We, as a collective group of Delorean owners, are very fortunate that 
Proto 1 is still in existence, and is in the hands of someone who's 
going to put it into a state where it will reflect with pride, the 
heritage of our cars for decades to come, and I will defend Tony's 
right to call it "the first".
