    Earliest known Pilot car found/photographed

    Sarah and I went to look at this car last week and took photos. She posted them up to the DeLorean Museum page on Facebook today:

    Awesome James. I remember you hearing about this late last year.

    What sort of condition is it in? what's it's future

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Very nice! Thanks for sharing.
    eBay selling at it's best I can tell you stock Delorians and quite a bit of slugs so the Turbo is a super nice up-grade.

    I'm going to rib James a bit...why didn't you take a REAL camera instead of taking, blurry, dim cell phone pictures???

    Seriously, it's nice to see a locked away relic like this & find the differences.

    Very cool! But I'm a little confused? I'm almost positive that the documentation I've read says that Pilot 21 (Ken and Cliff's Pilot Car) was the first automatic car made. It would appear this is not true. Very curious indeed...

    It's so interesting how these pilot cars exhibit some characteristics which are closer to the much later DeLoreans such as silver wheels, lighter colored fascias, later style shift levers, etc. Also kinda odd this car also has mis-matching driver & passenger seats like one of the other pilot cars (they both have passenger seats with a different style back rest/bolster design).
