(that's wild. It's like I posted but didn't. If this is a double post, mods please delete?)

Hey everyone. I think I might have hit the deepend of prop replication. This baby might be in my future (if the bank approves the loan...)







I know I'm happy as hell. I'll let you guys know if it comes and visits me permanetly.


EDIT: Reworked image tags... Darryl

Thanks Darryl... as you can tell I'm not too webboard savvy. :confused

I hope it comes through for you.

You will need to get it really working to beat the Traffic where you are at. ;)

Thanks everyone. I just got a call from my bank and I have been approved. Now the bidding war between the owner and I will commence.

just out of interest, as you don't see many of them in the uk. How much (in good condition) would one of these set you back?

I'm curious, is there anyway to attach the Time Machine Delorean Parts with High-powered Magnets?

That might be a better alternative than damaging an original Delorean. :D

This is my friends car;

Not totally accurate, but everything can removed without leaving a single mark on the car.


To the original poster, if you must butcher this car, at least do it properly. I do a lot of the press stuff for the DeLorean OC in the UK and the car deserves a better reputation than "lol time machine". if you want to restore it to it's original (dubious) glory, then more power to you.

I don't think I'll be ripping this car apart just yet. It'll last me a few years before I do that. But in the meantime, I might be collecting time travel parts... you know, just in case :lol

This car is in great condition. I saw it first hand and I'm hoping that the seller with sell it for $24,000. At least that's what I offered to him, and that's what he was asking around. So hopefully that'll pull through.

I don't think there is anything that I need to know about the Delorean except I know the door struts will be replaced a few times :)

I also welcome you to the club. You'll love it. (as long as it doesn't give you too many problems, LOL)

Good luck on the car. I have worked on several of these in the past (former life as a grease monkey) and found that they are interesting, to say the least.

If you get a chance, ask the owner if he occasionally drops by crossroads cycle in Baileys Crossroads. I spend a decent amount of time hanging out at the shop, and there is a guy that stops by from time to time with a Delorean. There really aren't that many in the area (I see the Fairfax County sticker on the windshied), so I am curious to see if it is the same car.
