Re: [DML] Newbie to DeLoreans



Ed,

The wide stripe was a dealer option.  I have not heard
of it adding any value to the car.  There are not too
many NOS stripes left, but a number of people have
remade them.  Even if there was a specific desire for
the stripe, they can be had (remade) so I don't think
it would be considered anything special.

There are lots of things to look for when buying a
DeLorean.  The #1 thing to be aware of is the
condition of the frame.  The epoxy coating can hide
rust, so you need to get under the car and poke
around.

Best way to educate yourself is to look at lots of
cars, and spend time with your local club and on this
mailing list.

It looks like you are from the Pennsylvania area?  We
are having a huge DMA event this Saturday (April 21). 
There will be lots of DeLoreans there, and even more
people you can learn from.
