Re: [DML] Does anyone else have one of these? Blank VIN Plate

Thanks to all for the input.  I obtained the VIN plate from a woman in
the UK, who told me that she got it many years ago in the city of
Coventry.  It had a slight bend in it that I straightened out when I
got it.  As for the difference in orientation that Jake mentioned, I'm
not that concerned about it.  True, the cut corners are on the top
instead of the bottom like some other early cars, but I can assume
this is just one of those differences that exist like in so many other
aspects of DeLoreans (i.e. no 2 are exactly alike).  Maybe they
printed the wrong side by accident wherever the plate was made.

In any case, feel free to continue the discussion of it.  I have
talked to Ken K and the blank VIN plate will for sure be at DCS.

your album of the VIN 500 tag.  Lawrence's VIN 538 tag also has the
same orientation as 500 (I happened to have a pic of his tag handy
that he sent me).

a hold of it?
