[DML] Re: Where are the 397 missing first production Deloreans ??





Well to partly answer my own question,as i read along in SSI on page 
93 it clearly SHOWS Vin 910.M (manual) coming off the FIRST load of 
Shipped Deloreans coming off the boat,according to SSI quote:the 
first Deloreans shipped to the US by boat are unloaded in Long Beach 
California.With a pic of 910 clearly shown,which was if going by vin 
897 being the first one being unloaded the 13th car off the boat 
which is vin 910 as pictured.So that means anything before vin 897 
was not a shippable car or a nonsellable  car. So were vins 500 
through vins 896 those Black shells(made whole) since it equals about 
the same amount of preproduction black shells produced?
