Re: [DML] What's it worth?

Best to find your local DeLorean club, and ask a
knowledgeable owner to look at the car with you.  If
you tell us where you are from, someone on this list
may be able to help you.

As a matter of good advice, I don't think I would
recommend a 27 year old car as primary transportation
unless you have already spent considerable amount of
time with it to gain confidence in it's reliability.

Don't buy the car assuming you can just strip the
paint off.  I'd be suspect of any painted DeLorean as
it is not uncommon to use paint to hide damages.  The
fact that the paint is in bad shape does not help your

Broken spedo is assumed on all DeLoreans.  At least, I
also assume that they have all been broken at one time
or another.  It is not a difficult fix, and I am sure
if you have been reading this list for more than 3
months you have already ready about it plenty!

The oil gage jumping is usually a bad sender.  Easy
enough to replace.

The idle fluctuation is also not uncommon on
DeLoreans, but it can get complicated to fix.  Does
that car drive OK?

I dont quite understand the brake problem.  Your
saying the E-Brake wont hold the car when it is in
gear?  E-Brake system is not complex.  It may be
seized or need an adjustment.
