[DML] Re: clutch

John, I only mention that if it is possible it is generally better to
have an experienced shop work on a Delorean. A job (like a clutch)
would take an experienced shop a lot less time and they would have all
of the parts needed on hand and would know what to expect. Obviously
any competent mechanic CAN work on a Delorean, it is just that it will
probably take him longer to do it for the simple fact that he is just
not familiar with the car. If his labor rate is low enough it could
just be a wash, especially if there is no Delorean vendor nearby and
travel (or towing ) is going to be a big expense. Aamcos can be
hit-or-miss. It all depends on the mechanic and his prior experience.
Another factor to consider is that there may be a backlog at any
particular Delorean vendor and it may take quite a while for them to
actually do the work. You can also be sure that since the Delorean
vendors know the car so intimately it is very likely they will find a
lot of other expensive work that needs to be done!!!!!! Rarely will
you find a 25 + year old car that "just" needs a clutch!
