[DMCForum] Re: FatBoy.

I assume your talking about the car with the Legend engine.  He
tracks the DML so well, I would think he knows.  Although, I have 3
DeLoreans so he may not be able to keep track of which one I am
talking about.

I admit, 1860 does need a new set of headliners and the passenger
door needs some adjustment (The lock hangs up sometimes)..  But I
LOVE my new NOS seat covers (Thanks to your friend Martin).  That was
the best money I spent on the restoration of this car.  OH, and the
rear view mirror sticky pad :)

Speaking of Ed, and Legend...  He still claims to have a Legend
engine, but in reality what he has is the engine that was touring the
country to promote the Twin Turbo DeLorean.  For shipping purposes,
many internal parts were missing.

Stephen told me in Memphis that he was there when Ed got this engine
running.  Said he had to have the pistons custom machined, and did
some other questionable things to make it run.  The engine was in a
car for a while, and everyone that saw it said it ran like crap. 
Under any acceleration it was knocking and sounded awful.  This is
probably why he removed it, and has it on display in his shop now. 
Less of an embarrassment on all of the wasted time and money he put
in to it.  All he has to show for is is a cool looking display (which
he had before he touched it!).  IMHO, it would have been worth more
for historical value if he did not screw around with it.
