    A&W Display DeLorean

    I found out today there's a DeLorean on display [near where I live] at the A&W in Lake George. From what I can see, I think it's been there for at least a month so I'm guessing it's not a rental.

    Oddly, the car looks very accessible inside & out (aside from being on a display stand.) This week I'll get a look and get some pics & info.

    Dark wheels and integrated pull straps? Might be an odds and ends car put together just for static display? Interested in seeing what else you find...

    You spelled "cheap" wrong... There's way better stuff out there.

    Cool

    I've tried quite a few. I like the light taste and feel of A&W.

    Visited the A&W tonite, took lot of pics, and spoke to one of the workers about the car. As suspected, it's the owners' car. He's also the cook and was unable to leave the kitchen for a visit; the parking lot was full so he was buried in burgers & fries, but sent his apologies and said he hopes we can chat next time. -Sounds like a nice guy.

    The VIN is 6142, November 81 build (registered as an 81.) For a Northeast car, the frame is in pretty good shape...appears it hasn't seen much (if any) road salt, and looks like the rust spots that developed were hit with POR-15 pretty early.

    The car is on display as part of the reopening of this business which burned down last year, then reopened last month. Plenty of press online about the fire & reopening. The owner is an older guy that has had the car a long time, and [after having a business burn down] wanted to "share" his D with customers and spread the smile factor it seems.

    I thnk the dude has brass balls to have a fully accessible Delorean in the parking lot of a very busy tourist area.

    The question of dark rims is easily answered as you'll see in the pics.

    I have a bunch more pics if anyone is interested to see more. Boy, it would be great if every DeLorean for sale was parked on one of these mamba-jamba's....you can see everything!
