[DML] Re: What's it worth?

Thanks everyone for the help so far.  To answer some of the 
questions you guys replied with:

The current owner has receipts for everything he has done so far but 
he doesn't really seem to be very knoweldgible about the car in 
general (he has owned them less than 1 year.) He owns another D. and 
wants the the garage space for something else, hence getting rid of 
the painted one.

My wife an I also have a 2002 Honda accord so getting rid of my 
daily driver will makes some things more of a pain, but we can still 
manage fairly easily. I bought a camaro z28 less than 2 months ago 
to work on so that's what I'll be getting rid of to afford a D.

The car seems to drive pretty well despite the rough idle.

About the E-brake, it seemed to only work about 20% of the time. I 
had to pull/release, pull/release, pull before anything actually 
caught and the car wouldn't roll. Without the ebrake and just 
turning the car off in 1st gear was about the same. I had to turn 
the car back on, back up, pull forward and then turn it off in 1st 
to get the car to stay stationary without the ebrake engaged.

Undercarriage looked free of any rust, that was the first thing I 
did when I got there was crawl under the car with a flashlight and 
camera. The only rust I saw was on a few bolts/screws in the engine 

I took pictures of the car if anyone wants to see them, most of them 
are close ups of the paint issues so it's hard for anyone to tell 
where they are without me telling them. 

One other question I had was about the front grill emblem. This car 
only had a plain black grill(no DMC brand), the only place on the 
outside of the car that said DeLorean was the rear bumper, is this a 
year-specific thing like the different hood styles?
