After lusting after a DeLorean since 1981 I finally got one about two years ago. Only preventive maintenance has been required (cooling system hoses, didn't fail but I want a reliable driver) and some electrical updates. Replaced alternator (a driveway job!), new electronic update for cooling fans(technology improvements since 1981 are available to make the car more fail-safe). I've driven it almost daily up to about a month ago, have placed it on consignment for sale because of money problems :^( It was driven on several highway trips of 200-300 miles a day, no problems and I wouldn't hesitate to start coast to coast in this car. All in all probably a very strong testament to a car nearly twenty years old! Never has left me stranded and always gets lots of attention (almost too much!). Great handling and economy too! Comfortable and a blast to drive, everyone should experience the DeLorean Feeling!
