    a sitrun owner can't raise the bar to own a delorean

    only a deserving pug owner would qualify

    Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.

    I once knew a guy who put a stainless steel floor in an FB Holden. What a tragic waste of effort! Not to mention the steel. He was obviously mad, regardless of the FB project, but hindsight renders him certifiable, without question.

    Trouble is that car is really just a life sized sculpture. All that effort to restore a car that can't be really ever driven. Certainly it's interesting to see it's basically just an offroad VW buggy with a delorian shaped shell on it At least they upgraded it's powerplant

    It's (or he's) not the first. I have a photo of an old Ford, perhaps 1940s, from a Pittsburg museum. When the file size for uploads exceeds 100 KB, I'll try and remember to upload it!

    It's been done before. Here is a stainless steel 1936 Ford in Pittsburg's museum.

    Actually the most expensive spare you could get for a Delorean was the snow tires

    And back to the Future was sponsored by Pepsi, should have been Coke

    Man - DeLoreans sucked hard. Would be one of the last classic cars I'd consider owning.

    Wheezy V6. Crap build quality and they handled like poo. A stainless steel kitchen benchtop is more appealing to own.
