RE: [DML] Want a DeLorean

It all depends how far you want to go...

I figure it like this... people may disagree

A DeLorean that needs work $6000-$10000
Pay someone to do an engine swap $10000 - $25000
Interior with new custom wiring, electronics, dash etc. $10000-$30000

So you could conceivably do it all for $30000 assuming you use a PRV based
engine (eagle 3.0) and do not do a custom dash or custom seat frames and do
a good deal of legwork between shops.  Another alternative is to go to a hot
rod shop and tell them what you want and have them do everything.  That'll
run at least $60000 but probably closer to $100000.  It's the labor that'll
Kill ya

And keep I mind for any project that you are doing, have an additional 50%
for unexpected costs.  You might be able to hack together something cheaper
but I will caution you against that... you may end up with a death trap.

Subject: [DML] Want a Delorean

Since the car came out, I fell in love, but never had the financial
resources to buy one, well times have changed. 

My dream is to own a delorean, more for the external style of the look
than dealing with all the endless internal problems. The car being
over 20 years old means the level of the technology is serious lacking
compared with the cars of the present, as this goes without saying. 

Is it possible to get a delorean, where all the insides are completely
replaced with lets say a more reliable modern car / engine etc....

I want the look of the Delorean, but the technology / engine / insides
of a modern reliable car?

Would like to know if this is an option and what it is going to co$t. 

Thanks, Mark
