Re: [DMCForum] Legend cars

I don't own any of those cars.. Mine is 1860, The
Legend engine in it was installed after the company
closed up.  The engine was used for dyno testing and
such, and was sold when Legend closed up. 

The rear view mirror is still holding strong!  :)

502 is owned by Rob Grady.

528 was fitted with a single turbo, and owned by a
customer of Robs. (the single turbo project was an
effort by Legend for a cost-reduced turbo option)

There was another single turbo car which was sold at
the Legend auction, this car eventually had the turbos
removed then later ended up being destroyed.  I don't
know if this was 501, 530, or 558.

Rob owns another Legend car which had a twin turbo
engine.  I am not sure what the VIN is on this car.

I did get to look through Fred Dellis's "black book"
where all of the test results for each DeLorean were
kept.  I saw only information on the 4 DeLoreans (501,
502, 528, 530) in the book.  Although I did not dive
to deep in to it, I saw no information about 558.
There were also a few other engines they used for
assorted dyno and endurance testing.  Fred estimates 6
to 8 twin turbo engines were complete when Legend
closed up.  I believe all have been accounted for.

Fred and I are supposed to get together before Pigeon
Forge to put together a presentation.  A big part of
what we have planned is question and answer, so feel
free to ask him this question!
