The search for a DeLorean begins…

(Or to explain more percisely, has already begun…)

Well, after being in love with this car for more than twelve years, I have begun my search to obtain a DeLorean for use as a daily driver and show car. I know it sounds a bit ackward, but I want to take a car, give it the full update while still keeping it close to stock (in looks, at least) but making it stand out as my own. I cannot afford to own a DeLorean on the side, as I have just graduated college and am getting married in a year. However, I plan to make the car my daily driver, but also keep it in good condition and clean so I can take it to the occasional show.

So far, I have been searching for D’s on eBay, Collector Car Trader, as well as Auto Trader, DMC News for sale board, and DeLorean owners classifieds. I have come close to purchasing a car, but not close enough. The qualifications that I have set are to find a car in good condition, in working condition, or as close as possible with the need for minor repairs. I need the car to be manual, and have a nice frame, as well as be around or under $12,000. I plan on documenting this process for future owners who would like to have an idea of the process, as well as time and money spent on the project.

Right now people think I am crazy for wanting an early ’80s car as my only means of transportation. Only time will tell…
