You say you gave him 5000K and your Delorean,and he just parks it 
outside all these years,without even starting it once in a while,well 
i hope you got a reciept,from him for the work to be done,as right 
now,if the car has been sitting untouched for three years,its gonna 
NEED,the fuel system totally redone,not to mention the master 
cylinder,and possible interior work(cracked dash/barnicle/bleached 
faded interior ect)tires might have dry rotted/cracked, brake rotors 
are  solidly rusted(need to be turned)just pray your frame did not 
rustout while sitting,if it was parked in a dirt yard,chances are you 
GOT some frame rust in those three years of being parked.Your battery 
is of course SHOT by now,just hope no windows were left open/or your 
car had a leak problem,as the mold and mildew,would be like a mini 
jungle in there,in effect what you own now(assuming all the above)is 
a parts car or a total Delorean restoration project car.Usually in 
the fine print,they state they are not responsible,for your car while 
it is waiting for the repairs,that is if you signed a repair 
order,your best bet is to see a lawyer,as NO repair shop,expecially 
one that claims to be the"best" DMC shop around should treat a 
customer,as badly as you have been treated,there is no excuse,that 
they can come up with,to counterclaim,the misuse of your money and 
your Delorean.In fact I think he should keep your Delorean,and in 
turn just GIVE you a PJ grady "rebuilt" Delorean,and just pay him for 
the orignal repairs,that were supposed to have been done.Let us know 
of the end results.
