    HELP - Just Moved to Seattle

    Hi all,

    I just relocated from New York to Samamamish to work in Seattle at Amazon. I brought with me my 1981 DeLorean. When I purchased the car, I had a lot of work done at PJ Grady's in Long Island City. For some time the car ran fine, apart from the battery dying. About 2 years ago I went through some financial difficulties and when the car would not start I just left it in the garage. It had about a 1/4 tank of gas in it. The car has around 14,000 miles and the outside of the car is in very good condition.

    I would love to get the car running again but I'm not sure I can afford DeLorean NW. If any of you are technically inclined and interested I really need someone to come look at the car and let me know what needs to be done in order to get it on the road. I will pay you for your time.

    Thanks,

    Antonio

    Looks like you're a member of the DeLorean Owners Directory. Don't forget to change your location (most people do).

    Yes, if you use the link provided, you will land on the DOD home page. In the upper right corner, select "Update".

    From there, you will need to enter your VIN and your password, and click "Submit", and then you can update your data.

    If you have forgotten your password, you can select "Forgot Pwd" instead. From there, you will need to enter your VIN and your email address, and click "Submit", and you password will be emailed to you.

    If you still have trouble, PM me, and I'll get you all straitened out.
