Re: [DML] I think my fuel pump is shot. Your thoughts please!

Did you open up the fuel pump access cover and check to see if the pump is running when you turn the key?  If it's not, you should check your inertia switch.  They are somewhat notorious for causing this symptom.  
Also check your fuel-related relays and fuses.  It's been awhile since I've gone digging into this kind of problem, but there are a couple relays which could not be making contact.
Or, you could try removing the fuel inlet hose from the fuel distributor, put it in a bucket (wear safety goggles!) and have a friend turn the key.  If gas comes out (should be high pressure too) at least it is getting to your engine.  

Let us know what you find -

I just tried to start my 81 DeLorean (Automatic) that has been in the 
garage all winter and it won't kick over.  The battery is fully charged 
and it acts like it isn't getting any gas.
