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

Well whatever you want to call it,I can guarantee you,that it would 
be THE most valued x19 around today,if it still exist(ed)! It's to 
bad that he did not do both concepts,(in the same size as a standard 
issue Delorean,not the size of the original x19 of course)It would 
have been nice to have both a open coupe and a Gullwing,and it 
would/could have insured DMC a better future.It could have been 
done/happened,if the DMC engineers and JZD,(especially JZD)wasn't so 
mule headed into only making a gullwing coupe.Picture a  Stainless 
Steel,open air,targa top DMC,NICE!! That would have been ONE hot 

Back to proto1,

I never said P1,wasn't THE Delorean at the top of the pack,in fact 
that is what the Lotus Mules were copied from(the early ones)again IT 
IS the benchmark car,that set the standards,for what the future DMC 
was to become.

I though proto2 was sold at the same auction,(as proto1)and still 
existed in someones garage,when did it get destroyed.

Also what is the Vin used for proto1 one anyway,if it even has vin 
plates issued to it,since I mean it was a proto,and those usually 
don't end up being privately owned/registered.
