[DMCForum] Re: DeLorean for Farrar.



Farrar,

The car DOES run. I'll bet Loosiana has some kind of historic car
regulation that will help you bypass most of the inspections.

If you get it cheaply enough, you can have it shipped. I'd look at it
seriously. Like you said, have someone nearby check it out. If it
starts and runs, I'd jump on it.
