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

I think this all comes down to what we perceive the
Delorean as.  Do we see it as a car with a rear-engine
config?  Or as a Stainless-skinned gullwinged
doored...yadda yadda yadda?  Since Proto1 embodied
much more of what the Delorean came to be than Red
Rocket, it appears to be THE prototype.  I assume the
frame under Proto1 was hand fabricated, but to me,
Proto1 wouldn't be any less valuable if it had been
built around an existing (fiat) chassis.  If it had, I
doubt that anyone would be saying "That's not the
prototype because it has an original VIN".  Red Rocket
wasn't THE prototype not because it was built on a
production chassis, but because, with the exception of
a rear-engine, it had none of the design elements that
became the Delorean DMC-12.  It was a concept test and
it is definitely part of the Delorean history, but
it's nothing of the magnitude Proto1.
