I had one. loved the looks then and still do. Had lots of problems with the electrical system (lucas) and coolant leakage due to all the plumbing which ran the length of the car. Finally fixed the leaking but was never satisfied with the electrics. The bonnet was large but only about 6" deep so no spare tire. Lots of room behind the seats for luggage. Could not order any drinks at a drive through. they would'nt fit through the tiny portion of the window that would roll down. Wonderful car for highway driving but no rear visibility at all. All minor problems that could be fixed modern electrics and backup cameras. If the price was right, I would own another one, warts and all.
I'm a DeLorean owner (DMC #10515) and I know that stories about the DeLorean get a lot of clicks / likes, but every year, the fake DMC in Houston releases the same story about building "new" DeLoreans. In fact, they've been saying the same thing since August 21, 2007 (13 years ago): (can't insert the link, but search google for "Texas Entrepreneur Set to Start Building DeLorean Cars" to find the story on FoxNews from August 21, 2007)
Many DeLorean owners believe that the Houston company is just trying to bump up their awareness so they can be bought by some other company.
Also, if they ever DO build "new" DeLoreans, with updated parts, the last we heard, the car would be over $100,000. You can buy a great condition original DeLorean for $50,000. Or, buy two poor condition DeLoreans for $25,000 each, and then spend another $50,000 on customizations and have a better car than what the fake DMC would build.
One of the biggest issues for these limited production vehicles were the laws that were in place .The Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act was supposed to address those concerns but from what I have read there are still issues with this and many of these groups are taking a wait and see attitude .
Let me start this by saying my heart goes out to all the people in Michigan who have been affected by the dam failures and the flooding .One of the after effects of this is a company Forever Fieros in Sanford Michigan which was destroyed and many of the cars totalled .I worked in many flood...
