Niels, is the VIN of a DeLorean visible from the outside? In July I saw one in Holland with plate YK-37-JN ...

S = Great Britain
CE = DeLorean Motor Cars Ltd. (Antrum, North Ireland)
D = represent the car line / type
T = represents the serie (there was only one, I guess ...)
2 = represents the body style
6 = represents the engine
T = represents the restraint system
Then followed by the check digit (= complex calculation)
Then the model year (B = 1981, C = 1982)
Then a "D" (representing the assembly plant)
Then the sequential production number

Sorry .... but I couldn't resist ....
