Welllll ..... The DeLorean rears it's shiny head here too.

The original preproduction specs for the DeLorean had
features such as a totally stainless steel structure, IOW a
virtually permanent investment in classy transportation.

When it was finally ready for sale it had the usual type
of corrosion-prone mild steel structure, covered with a
high maintenance skin of stainless sheet metal and dark
smoked plexiglass windows ... the entire exterior was
thus prone to collecting all sorts of abrasions and chips
that could not be "spot" touched up. Gotta polish out a
whole window, or a whole panel ... and even then, it
would look a bit different compared to the rest of the
vehicle. Thaz a lotta cosmetic maintenance for a car
on its way to the crusher just like all other mild steel
structured cars [IOW nearly 100% of cars].

OK back to that elegant digital retro RF. Preproduction
press vs reality is a powerful dichotomy. Wait and see.
I'd be as pleased as anyone to see this prediction prove
false. But I'm not building up a slush fund in anticipation.
