[DML] test drive-is this 'normal' for deloreans?!?!



Last week I test drove a Delorean for the first time. It was a 1982 
model with 18k miles on it. I've always liked the look for Deloreans 
and for me it was a treat. But what an aweful ride! No power steering, 
break and clutch were as hard as cement to push down.  Very rough 
idle. No pick up.  It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the 
stiffness of the brake and clutch.  After a 30 minute ride my legs 
were actually soar and cramped.

Is this normal, as in how the cars ride?

Also, can the interiors (door leather, buttons, gauge cluster, etc) be 
replaced with new material? Even with low miles this car really showed 
its age.  The interior was worn, things broken, stiff, loose, etc.
