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

I believe they are mostly accounted for.
  Many went to Chestnut Fleet Rental.  I'm sure it is possible that the first shipment wasn't necessarily the first cars off the line.  Maybe the build quality on the first few hundred were bad enough that they didn't want them to go out to individual customers.  Sounds like perfect contenders for leased cars though!

call vin # 1897(it should be car # 1397 built and vin 1500 should 
have been the 1000th car) the 1000th car,and then have vin # 910 on 
the first load of cars to come off the boat.
We know the first 150-170 cars or so were not shipped.But what 
happened after that.Again if you do simple math it suggests that Vin 
# 897 was the first car to be shipped.Sure there could have been a 
straggler or two before vin 897 that went on the ship,with the first 
shipment,but again how could 396 cars be unaccounted for in early
