[DML] Used Deloreans for Sale

*****  Moderator Note  *****
Carfax is offering a free service to help identify
flood damaged cars.  Enter the VIN at their special
site and they will tell you the zip code of the last
registered owner.  

Mike G  Moderator of the week

Anyone buying a Delorean (or any car new or used) must be especially
careful now. With all the recent large storms and flooding there are a
lot of cars that were flooded or "totaled". In many cases these cars
will be "freshened up", moved out of the area, and sold for what will
appear to be a "bargain" price. That bargain will not turn out to be
such a good deal after the car rots from the inside out. Carfax may
help. Figuring out the "chain of ownership" may also help. Look in
hidden places for silt, bugs, leaves, etc. Use your nose to check for
mildew. Run the A/C and check for odd smells. Look under the carpet
for stains. See if the wiring is green at the connectors. If buying
from a dealer check on whatever warranty they may offer for flood
related repairs. If the price is too good to be true there may be a
reason! I am not saying not to buy a "flood car", just be aware that
you may face a lot of problems in the future so the price you pay
should reflect that.
