Stainless steel cars were not pioneered by DeLorean in 1981, though that company was the first to mass produce a stainless steel car. The first stainless steel car was proposed by the Allegheny Ludlum Steel Division in 1935 to Ford Motor Company and six 1936 Ford Model 68 Tudor Deluxe sedans were produced. The idea was repeated at the end of the run of 1958 to1960 Thunderbirds, since those cars in stock form used a great deal of stainless steel for their trim. Two 1960 Thunderbirds were built in stainless steel. It was necessary to wait until the end of the production run, because the harder stainless steel would wipe out the stamping dies. In 1966, three 1966 Lincoln convertibles were made in stainless steel. An example of each of these cars can be seen at the Crawford Auto-Aviation museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

That's right Jon.

And with the 105' heat that you've been having in North Texas, you could park it along side the road, and make some extra cash frying Breakfast Tacos on the hood.
