    I think the nose is too pointed for a mustang, plus judging by the size of the headlights, its narrower than a mustang.

    I did an image search of mustangs with 4 round headlights. Itís not a mustang. The spacing between the headlight locations is to narrow. But the quad round headlights would indicate its an older car.

    Good catch.

    I tried browsing to the URL with the number in the picture, but it says there is no vehicle matching it on their site.

    We need a volunteer in Santa Rosa to go along and find the real D wreck and presumably whatever code is on it, is for this none and vice versa

    Is it a Delorean?

    Given the vin specificity, I would more suspect that the insurance company got the pictures mixed up. With all the other fire related car loses, mixing up the pictures would be likely.
