Re: [DML] 4419 Bites the dust



Rick,
  it sounds like a good car, except for the frame.  I hope someone is willing to put a new frame on this car and not just part it out.

  Well after being a very satisfied 1981 Delorean owner since June 
of 1998, I sadly have come to the conclusion that the car is 
finished. The frame is beyond repair and the vehicle is no longer 
safe to operate. 
When the car was purchased in 98 it had been abandoned for many 
years and the weather and exposure had taken its toll on the 
interior and facias. Against better judgment I bought this one and 
had it flat bedded home.
I wrote a large check at the Warehouse in Columbus the year the 
show was held in Cincinnati and the fun started. After six months of 
parts hunting and the help from folks around the country, we were on 
the road. 
I started with 9400 miles and ran it up to 34000 cross country 
miles. With many weekend trips and long vacations, this was a 
pleasure to drive. We have met and traveled with some very good 
people who also happen to enjoy their cars. The amount of interest 
shared was not just limited to the cars but the desire to travel and 
meet new people.
Kathy and I have always been reluctant to join clubs of any sort. 
But the decision to participate in the Delorean Club of Ohio was one 
we will continue to enjoy for years to come. The fact that we are 
currently without a Delorean will not prevent our continued interest 
and traveling with the group. 
4419 is currently deposited at Dave's shop in Columbus. I have 
made arrangement to get rid of the carcass with Dave. And the hunt 
starts for another car.
Hoping to see everybody in Chicago.
