[DML] Re: "Fastest" DeLoreans (Marc and Martin)



The current owner is an old family friend of ours and makes a living
repairing and restoring exotics and specialty imports. I really don't
have any reason not to trust him. 

I'm because:

1) The owner wants to sell it to me specifically because I'm the only
real DMC fanatic he's had make contact with him (all the other
would-be buyers expressed such intellectual gems as 'LOL IT HAS COOL
DOORS LOOK' and 'ITS THE BACK TO THE FUTURE CAR CAN I BUY IT').

2) The car is in really good shape - all the updates performed on it,
including new TABs and new struts and all the other things you're
supposed to check, and a nice modern sound system to boot.

3) He's giving me a killer deal on it.

The extra power is just a bonus. But I still believe his horsepower
claims if only because he didn't give me any numbers or details until
AFTER I'd agreed to buy the car - not because he was withholding them,
I just didn't think to ask him. At the time I was under the impression
that the air filter was the only semi-permanent change made to the car
and the nitrous oxide was disengaged and wasn't even included.  

I may be wrong about the cams, but he didn't mention them at all when
we sat down and I wrote out all the modifications he's done to it.
It's possible it just didn't cross his mind at the time.  

When I finally finish paying off the car (expect at least a year's
wait...), I'm going to run it on a dyno myself if he hasn't found the
sheet by then. 

I don't know how much difference it makes, but remember that the
engine is now a 3.0L engine due to the new pistons - in his words,
displacement is the cheapest horsepower available. 

If I'm not making any sense at all, let me know. I'm running on very
little sleep today.
