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



I haven't noticed the clutch on my Delorean to be too stiff, a 
little perhaps but I am never sore after driving it. 

Rough idle could be a lot of things but it should idle very smooth. 
There are some very knowledgeable people in this group who can help 
you out with that.

Interior parts can be replaced but at great expense. DMC Houston has 
the stock of interior parts. Check eBay a LOT, things come up all 
the time.
