[DML] VIN's used as press cars at factory



>From the book Stainless Steel Illusion and various automobile magazines we
know that a number of DeLoreans were used as press cars around March of
1981. The old DMCTalk had some photos of these cars being cleaned up about
that time.

I was in Detroit this past weekend and was able to view the archives of Zora
Arkus-Duntov (ZAD) as they related to his consulting work for DeLorean Motor
Company. Zora was at the factory to address issues with bump-stop on the
press cars and in his words "was appalled by the condition of the press
cars". He spent the rest of his time there before the media arrived making
the cars presentable.

He identified 82 items on the five cars, and handwritten notes on these cars
were in the files, along with his report to John dated March 19, 1981.

These cars were: 

VIN 554 (1,215 miles on car)
VIN 558 (1,173 miles on car)
VIN 555 (mileage not recorded)
VIN 556 (mileage illegible)
VIN 557 (mileage not recorded)

558 later was assigned to Legend Industries for development, but I'm
wondering if any of these cars still around in the UK/elsewhere?
