[DMCForum] #17084 rides again



Hi everyone. I just got back from Northern Ontario to trailer back
#17084.

It's an 83, Grey 5-speed with 10000 Km (about 6000 miles). I
bought
it from the original owner who has babied it for the last 21 years.
He owned a "Canadian Tire" store which is a large
automotive/hardware
chain up here in Canada.  After reading all the posts about proper
storage I was a little cautious about this one but he really knew how
to store a car. The car was regularly started and maintained
throughout it's life. Outside of a few cobwebs and a small crack
in
the windshield, it is in the same condition as it was when it left
the dealership.

It's one of the "Canadian" models with the 240 Km/h speedometers. One
question if anyone knows - How many of these were made? I heard
anywhere from 80 to 120 but on the DMC VIN list it looks like there
could be at least 168. Were there some numbers skipped or changed for
other countries?

When I get a chance I will post a URL with the story on how I found
it along with lots of pics (any requests - stickers etc)?
