[DMCForum] Re: "Where are they all?" [was: pre-production]



Ok,Now you are understanding what I was saying,these cars were never
to be SOLD,just used for what they were intended,for Company
purposes,testing,R&D,big wigs,training,THEN dismantled or destroyed.


That was their intended purposes,BUT can you account where they are
today,chances are a lot of them were Destroyed or used for parts.
(before the factory close down)
The ones that are around today,are the ones that were either still
being used,or off site of the factory(ie: Legend cars)or were shipped
to foreign countries for show purposes ect.Evading their fate because
they Just happened to still be around When the factory shut Down.
They then became,Vehicles to Liquidate,rather than Destroy.

Does this finally clear about the first  cars off the line?
