[DMCForum] Re: pre-production





And you are correct as vin 500 was the number  one car 502 was the
second 570 was the 70th car ect ect. The point I Was making was that
they were not sellable cars which equates to a Non-production car or
a pre-production car,You are mistaking Protype cars with pre-prod.
cars.Protypes are CARS before vin 500 period.But again none of those
cars were made for selling purposes,just for whatever the company
needed them for,and were never supposed to be released to the general
public,or sold as Normal Production cars (vin 500-648)Non sellable
after their intended use,just either Destroyed or used for parts.
As they were NON-PRODUCTION cars. or pre-production cars.

Hope this explaines it more Clearly
