Re: [DML] Ignorant DJ

Ah...that must be why I use my 175,000 mile DeLorean as a daily driver, 
and haven't had any issues that weren't "self imposed" in over 5 years.

That must be all those mechanical and electrical problems that keep it 
going!  I'll make sure it doesn't find out about them.  It might pull 
one of those Warner Bros cartoon like things, where it suddenly just 
falls apart when it realizes it.

The PRV engine is probably one of the most reliable engines ever built.  
I'd even venture to ask:  Has anyone on this mailing list has ever had 
an issue with their factory original PRV with less than 150,000 miles on 
it, that wasn't related to poor care and/or lack of regular scheduled 
oil changes?

Who has the highest mileage DeLorean out there anyway?  I know Bill 
Miller in Columbus has over 260,000 miles.  Who can top that?

VIN 5102 (175,000 miles)
VIN 15964 (125,000 miles)
