This DeLorean has been well loved and cared for for the 12 years we have had her.
Of the 8,400 built this is one of the few of the 5,000 left in the world that still run and can be used as a daily driver. The "D" gets great gas mileage and zips down the highway or around town with ease. She gets the most attention at any of the car shows we have had her at. Kids from 6 to 80 all recognize it. It's like driving a museum piece and a movie star.
I would love to keep her, but it is now time she went to a new home so someone else can enjoy and take care of her.
Most of the mechanical wear items have been replaced over the past few years to make her a true "Daily Driver". These include:
-Dependable "Bulletproof" PRV (Peugeot-Renault-Volvo) engine. Parts are available from many sources.
-Complete 134a freon A/C system replacing the old R12 with new system designed for the car (Special T). Blows very cold for South Texas summers.
-High amperage GM alternator.
-New Power Brake Booster with Master Cylinder, new F&R flex brake lines, new brake pads (4 wheels) and new Front Disks.
-New front wheel bearings.
-Rack and Pinion replaced at about 46,500 mi (10,000 since).
-Brass Radiator (not plastic/Alum) with heavy duty (Spec T) Fans, coolant hoses, Stainless Surge Tank, air bleed system modification for coolant and New Water Pump (DMC),
-Replaced cooling fans
-Stainless steel letters in the rear bumper

-Cooper Tires (correct sizes F&R for the car). about 6,000 miles on them. Also small spare was replaced on org rim in 2010 (actually holds air).

-New intake seals (required to change water pump)
-New oil pressure sensor

-Seat covers were replaced at original rebuild in 2004/05 with DMC HOU two tone Black and Gray. Headliner replaced then too. Dash has some cracks so a cloth dash cover was installed.
