Re: [DML] The COMPLETE DeLorean crash test videos, report and more.

The problem is Nobody keeps a record of that..I am sure if I did not mention about the young lady that died because of a faulty would never have been known..or forgotten in the past.

My point here is that maybe there was a death with a delorean in a crash and maybe there were none..unless someone speaks up or has first hand knowledge(like I had about the history on my parts car and the death it caused)or a newspaper clipping to show ...there is no way to know for sure.

Maybe the Delorean owner of my parts car died in the accident I just don't know and will never know.

I have a Pic of a Bricklin that the Occupants SURVIVED a 18 wheeler head-on crash..the 18 wheeler  cab actually ended up on top of the Bricklin passenger cab. So I know for a fact that the Bricklin actually SAVED two lives..unlike the Delorean..that took away a Young ladies life...
