[DML] Re: Idle Problems Solved-Well, Almost!



Yes, unfortunately I'm putting my car up for sale as I have just 
spent too much money on it and must make a difficult financial 
decision.  Like many others in the group who have owned several 
different DeLoreans I plan to purchase another one down the road 
when I've built myself a bigger financial cushion.  I will remain on 
the DML as I have and always will enjoy reading and discussing all 
things DeLorean!
