RE: [DML] Charles's car



  I THINK his wife, Gladys, may still have the "D". Presuming, of course, Gladys is still with us. I haven't heard anything from that part of the country since Charles departed, though. (Penn.)    He told me that he went to the salvage & acquired a carbureted intake manifold from a Volvo with the same 2.8 L engine. Interchangable with the "D's"  OEM, then he did the appropriate mods, added the carb., and "voila", a carbureted Delorean! Indeed, I remember his claim of 30-32 MPG (5-sp).    He gave me some technical info. some time back (can't exactly remember on what), in German that I have on file.  A neat couple!   He is missed! (As is Gladys)           Drive Stainless   (any way you desire)    Robert  VIN  6924
