Re: [DML] Re: Gold plated DeLorean



  I apologize for assuming that all readers of this list would know that when I said I was at the Harrah Nation Automobile Museum in Reno and said that ?they? said this or that, that all would know it was someone who works for or at the museum. Obviously I was wrong.
   
  So, for clarification, when I used the word ?they? in my posting, ?they? applied to museum personnel.
   
  The people I spoke with appeared to be either employees or volunteers of the museum. I did not question them as to what exactly their role was with the museum nor their qualifications for making any comments they made to me about this car or any of the other cars.
   
  One individual said that the gold-plated DeLorean had been on display at a bank in Snyder, Texas. I?m only repeating what he said. I have no idea as to the veracity of the comments by this or other individuals that I spoke with when I was there.
   
  I did get the impression that this gold plated DeLorean was being treated kind of like an unwanted step child. It was displayed in a room which totally lacked the dignity of the rooms where the main part of the collection is.
   
  The car also had a lot of smudges on it but that's probably understandable as people seem to want to check the feel of the surface of any DeLorean and this one was even more tempting to be touched and felt because of its deep rich and beautiful color.
   
  There was a poster next to the car which said, ?This is one of two 24-karat gold-plated DeLoreans. To insure the car would have cost approximately $1,000 a month. A mere ?door ding? had a potential repair cost of $24,000!?

Who is "they"?

The Texas Synder Bank car, VIN 4301, is now in the Petersen Automotive
Museum in L.A. and VIN 4300 is the gold AMEX car on display in the
William F. Harrah Foundation's National Automobile Museum in Reno.
