[DML] Re: 1981 Delorean coming up for sale/virtually factory new



Hi Personally i think you may struggle for $40k

there are a fair few such factory fresh cars around with those miles 
or less! as many thought they may be a good long term investment.

a long time sitting without running is not necessarily good.
(ie fuel in tank eating the rubber, hydraulics etc.)

just my thoughts
