Re: [DML] Ebay Delorean



Basically he was trying to get me to buy it for 6K,since I no longer 
have my huge stash of DMC parts anymore,for me it will cost huge 
bucks to get running to even pass any state inspection(or at least to 
a safety stand point).From his attitude he just wants to unload it
(for as much as possible)Granted this will be a great car to 
repair...BUT ONLY if you ALREADY have the frame and parts needed to 
fix it the RIGHT WAY.If you will be searching for the parts to repair 
it..in the long run YOU WILL spend A LOT more than if you went out 
and bought a Delorean with a good frame that needs minor repairs.My 
advice stay away from this one UNLESS you either have the Garage 
space for long term restore.. parts needed already purchased(or get 
them a very reasonable rate),and knowledge into the workings of a 
Delorean,or at least a friend that will guide you in the correct 
procedures into getting this Delorean in good(and safe) working 
order.BUT PLEASE..do everyone a favor and DO NOT PART IT...(to 
whoever ends up buying it)
