Owner John T. described the car to have a 'red hot' catalytic convert pipe after idling for 20 minutes and wished to sell the car. After a previous buyer failed to show, I (Mason Fowlkes) flew down to inspect the vehicle, meeting with a local DeLorean enthusiast and mechanic by trade, Daniel C from the DeLorean Fanatics group.

Vehicle was found to have several common issues such as: leak in coolant lines, blown fuses, acid leaking battery (requiring a jump to start), and a bypass of the micro switch in the engine bay. Car was also to be found running with new fuel dumped on top of existing older fuel.

A deal was settled on in late January and the car was delivered on February 27, 2019. Battery has since been replaced, fuel tank cleaned and fuel injectors have been tested. As of June 2019, the car is set to be transported to DMC Midwest to undergo a 'ready to drive' restoration.
