Re: [DML] Newbie to DeLoreans

I think $15K might be a slightly high number unless you are talking about a 
total frame off restoration. I paid for $15K for my whole car and it was in 
minty condition.
For nly a few thousand and the help of the vendors you can replace the 
entire fuel and brake
system, these two things are the biggest trouble makers to a car that has 
been sitting.
A few electrical upgrades might be needed, and maybe some A/C service, and 
some of DMCH's seat covers.
