[DML] Re: DMC in the news

Isn't the Black Fiberglass body *THE* area that counts as the VIN,in 
other words you could change the frame/drivetrain/interior/body 
panels,and it would make no difference for the vin plates/title,but 
change the Black body,and you have to use the vin plates from that 

There is ERA Cobra near me,( http://erareplicas.com/ )
that makes world class replica Ford Corba's GT40's and others,from 
Scratch,(including the Frame and suspension and interior and wiring 
etc)what they do is use THEIR OWN vin plates,that says ERA on it,and 
put Their Vin Numbers,and they are sold in both fashions,either a 
turn Key car or as a kit that you assemble,or as a roller,that you 
only have to put your own drivetrain.Their facilities(when I 
visited) was equal to DMCH's square footage,or maybe just a little 
less)Next time you go to a cruise look at a ERA Cobra Replica VIN 
plate to see what I am talking about.
Maybe that is what DMCH is planning,using a DMCH Certified Vin 
plate,But selling them as a kit,from what I understand Lotus did the 
same thing on one of their very first cars that they produced,you 
bought them as kits.
