Enjoyed it very much.


Thanks. Enjoyed that.
Wouldn't mind owning one myself considering its not fast.
That's not the point though is it!

Yeah, not very fast, but still very enjoyable to drive and certainly a head turner. For me, it has the most comfortable driving position of any car I've owned/driven. Semi-reclined with arm rests on both sides.

I've never driven the comparable Esprit from the 81-83 era. Anyone know if it has the same feel?

For the money i think there so many better projects to do to a resto on.
It's all a matter of personal taste. I see some of the insane restorations on 1950's hot rods and I can't comprehend it (no offense intended - just not my style). But a similar project on a Lotus or Lamborghini seems perfectly reasonable in my head!

At least you can get parts fairly easily for Deloreans. Not the case with more exotic cars like Lambos or Lotus. The funny thing about Deloreans is that although they were engineered by Lotus there are NO Lotus parts anywhere to be found on a Delorean except the Renault UN 1 transaxle! A Delorean may not be the fastest car on the planet but it does handle well! And you never have to worry about scratches or chips in the paint.
