    I'm surprised he didn't attack it more directly because of the movie.

    You know, I own a Delorean - just bought it last month (I've had my fill of Corvettes) and, yes, I bought it *partially* because of Back to the Future. It was a great movie, I saw it when I was four years old, and loved the car ever since. Sure I appreciate it mostly for its uniqueness, its heritage and design, but I can't lie - I like the idea of owning my own "time machine".

    And anyone who bashes DMC's...I don't understand them. They're a classic example of innovative automotive design and cosmetic eccentricity.

    I enjoy it quite a bit (only have had it a couple of days now). It has only 44,000 miles on it, it is a 5-speed, grey interior, and I have all the reciepts for it going all the way back to 1981 when the original owner, whom I purchased the car from, bought it. I even have all the original manuals, brochures, and service guides - even the letter from JZD all owners received.

    Apart from a cold start problem (thermo-time switch I think) it runs great, looks great, and goes even better. I didn't get the car to be noticed really, but people can't stop asking me to get their pictures taken with it, or sit in it. I let them of course :0). Very few cars have this kind of magnetism that I've seen.

    the delorean only got famous becxause of the material its made from (alluminum plates) and the movie it played in (back to the future) i dont think its a good car nor do i think its worth anything to me its a piece of alluminum, but i stil liked the movie and the car looks cool but i wouldnt buy it

    example of a normal everyday Delorean expert.

    Aluminium plates huh sure kid

    You are really stupid it has a steel chasis, grp under body and STAINLESS STEEL panels. And its worth more than most cars made in 1981. But my guess your around 10 years old.

    Yes, these self-proclaimed DMC "experts" are...unusually stupid. A good condition DMC sells for more than alot of new cars... there are very few cars on the road that get the attention and respect a DMC does.

    At any rate, to answer an earlier question, my car is VIN #2991, and has the gas-flap hood. And no, I'm not on the DML - I managed to figure out that it was the time-switch by calling the DMC garage in California, and doing a google search for some Delorean tech info.

    I should look into the mailing list sometime though...

    if you save the engine, you can get the 197hp crate installed. i think they dont do it past 50k.
