RE: [DML] Back into the fray -

Hi Don,

I can answer only two of your questions but I'll address them all.

1) I have no info on this car.

2) I know of some local D's for sale and have several available at my shop
now. I have a near perfect 83 5spd (with the rare black and light grey
interior used on a very few late VIN# cars) with a one year warranty as well
as several privately owned cars at lower prices. Why don't you give us a

3) It costs $5223.75 for a complete motor or $3500.00 for a short block not
including freight and installation.

4) I wish I knew its whereabouts as we sold the car brand new to the
previous owner in 1981 and did most of the service to it until he sold it to
you a few years ago. I hate to see one of my "babies" get lost!

Let me add that it is ALWAYS cheaper to buy a properly maintained or
restored Delorean than to buy a fixer-upper unless you are a mechanic and
can do all the work yourself. Labor accounts for about half of a restoration
job so you could save money, but lose (your valuable?) time, that way. I am
continually amazed at the amount of seemingly intelligent people that choose
to buy a DeLorean "blind" even after consulting with a DeLorean vender. They
think they will save money by avoiding the "middleman" but don't realize
that unless they are a very good mechanic then they'll be dealing with one
anyway in the form of expensive parts and service! I always advise potential
owners to save their money until they can buy one that is in good shape but
surprisingly few listen but hey...what can you do. "You can lead a horse to
water but" know the rest.

Hello All, 

Its nice to see alot of familiar names on the list that still have 
their cars. I've been out of the delorean world for about 5 years 
(sold mine to pay for my bachelors and finish school) and i am 
thinking about jumping back into delorean ownership (i must be 
crazy). I've coninually been seeing lower grade cars going for big 
bucks, and am wondering if the restoration experience is something 
that I'd like to undertake. I wouldn't even attempt it if i didn't 
live right down the street from PJ Grady's so im in a unique 
situation. A few questions.....

#1 - Does anybody on the list have any info on the Ebay car with the 
non-working engine? It seems to be in decent shape yet it lingers on 
the site with no takers. 

#2 - Is there any owners on Long Island that know of any cars for 
sale locally? 

#3 What does a crate engine run these days from any of the suppliers?

#4 Does anyone know how vin#3541 is doing out there? Never heard 
from the new owner and was wondering if shes still out there

Thanks all, 
-Donald Kazmark - former owner of #3541 new vin?
