Re: Legend Turbo Deloreans, factory and others

I am sure Chris does Superior work,but come on you are making vin 570 
sound like it was sitting in a field somewhere,(which technically it 
was before I got it)when it fact it was stored indoors(and with a car 
cover over it) from day one,until  it was sold,it NEVER ever saw the 
outside world until it left my hands!!! (appox 15yrs)and then it was 
stored 15 feet above earth(second floor),(all my "Ds" were 
permanently stored indoors)any Physical damage(passenger door) was 
done by the P.O.and I had a mint door for it's replacement(on a donor 
car),the only "damage" I did was accidentally crack the 
windshield,the SS panels were perfect,the Qpanels WERE NOT the 
permanent panels(and not the originals(those were still on the donor 
car or stored) and given with the car(s)the frame was a perfect MINT 
0 rust perfect straight(as new)Interior was as I got it minus removal 
of seats and carpet(stored away)If you saw it as I got it,yes then 
you could/would have said, it could have been a parts car(same with 
vin 16686,now a mint show style car) Any "butchering"/Damage was done 
by the previous P.O.
Vin 570 had/has a perfect mint SS on the nose,drivers door was 
perfect,pass door had damage(by the p.o.lower area,repairable by 
Chris,me I was going to replace)the temporary Q panels had 
some "nicks",but easily removable/repairable,but again those that 
were on the car when taken were NOT supposed to be the perament 
panels,the Black body was  very Clean,with no damage,Yes the car 
needed completion,as I was doing a ground up restore,and the drive 
train was not installed,(and started before removal,ran excellent)but 
at one point in time,I was having problems with my local town hall,
(because of a bad renter in part of the building)and at the time by 
local code I was NOT allowed to do major automotive work in my 
building,(as they planned to break the door(s) down and enter)so I 
hastily put the black body on the frame,and just bolted the (the 
temp. Q panels) on as to make all cars look as stored cars(allowed by 
local code),then never got back to finish, where I had left off.(Then 
sold in that state)

If he is making it into a Turbo car,that's great news!! But Again 
like vin 16686, vin #00570 would not be around today to be 
completed,had I not done a partial restore,and a full restore on 
16686.But I needed to do a quick sale as I had to give the place to 
the new owner,and had no place to store them,and would not EVEN think 
about storing them outdoors,so I sold rather than watch them rot 
outside.Otherwise it would have become another completed car as I did 
with vin 16686(back in 1988 and still going strong today,a testament 
to my workmanship).As I had ALL parts(and then some) to make it into 
a showcar,which I was planning to do,but never completed.The car(s) 
left as described above,I cannot say,what the condition it was after 
it left my hands,or if parts were exchanged for lessor parts,BUT the 
only real damage was on the pass door/nicks on Qpanels/cracked 
windshield,otherwise a very easy car to assemble only.Since I had the 
SS parts,it was assembly ONLY for me.Wiring was unbutchered/dash 
untouched by me(mint)except someone had already taken the radio.Black 
body was very clean,along with the frame.
All parts were there to complete.I had well over 200 hours into the 
car when sold.
