[DML] Re: Lotus Engineering.




I really like the Delorean that is why I have spent 22 years of my 
life into them,but to put a Glossy picture that the car was Done 
really right is just plain wrong..It would just totally make a future 
owner just despise and hate the car after buying it..it is best if 
the truth is told,and the rose colored glasses are taken off..that 
being said, since the cars are now 25+ years old,and after seeing a 
*lot* of Deloreans that could use major restorations..but yet at 
first glance look really nice..the Delorean is one of the few cars 
out there that could easily look very nice,but underneath all the 
niceness,which I am sure a few people on this list could agree with 
me..was a nasty surprise of $$$$$ of dollars worth of repairs to be 
done just to make the car road worthy.
In the 1980's-90's you *could* get by without doing all the repairs 
that have now come do since the cars had not aged to the point of 
major serious repairs,now that cars are reaching their "senior" 
age..People have to KNOW and be advised of the weak points in the 
Delorean in order to make sure they are not driving a "Accident 
waiting to Happen" as there are people out there that have NOT a clue 
as to what is happening under that shiny Stainless Steel..In some 
cases people see shiny stainless Steel and a decent black under-
body,and a good running motor and think everything is A-OK,meanwhile 
the front  suspension is rotting out,the trailing arm bolts are about 
to snap,the wiring is melting etc...It is BEST to be informed Good or 
bad..than to be clueless into what could be happening while driving a 
25+ year old classic.Drive Safe Drive Stainless
