    Very very clean example and a cool history with JZDs initials on the door and autographed by BTTF cast members.

    But talk about smoking wacky weed when they came up with the price!! Yikes!!

    My VIN:    4877

    Been seeing quite a few lately that are pushing their prices up into that range....seems perceived value is climbing? Though to be sure..the ones on ebay at that price keep getting relisted...so maybe not..hehe

    Interesting history, but I'd be surprised if someone paid that asking price.

    No way this car will bring that. Im all for climbing prices, but asking and selling are two different things. Ebay cars still bid strong only to about 25 to 28k meaning what someone's willing to risk on these cars. Any higher and you rarely see bids, unless it's extremely nice.

    $62k for one with an in-need-of-work frame and dodgy interior, makes this $82k one seem appropriately priced

    Was listed last year for $35k on craigslist, so that seems a reasonable profit for the addition of a couple of bottles or armor-all


    I hope they both sell for list price

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    My VIN:    Pending. Previously 10115 & 5252

    I noticed today that the latest DeLorean auction on Bring A Trailer today didn't hit reserve and maxed out at $19k. Normally BAT auctions go higher than book values because the website tends to draw the most fanatical bidders. Granted, it wasn't the nicest example... but oddly enough, those are the ones which seem to whip up the most frenzied bidding wars, while the nicer cars just sit on the market. Some comments on that auction mentioned how the market is flooded with high priced DeLoreans right now- makes you wonder if we are in for a correction.

    The fact that these high priced cars arent selling indicates that the market isnt yet ready for that... non runners or cars that need work I cant see getting into the 20's at all..specially since you never know what other gremlins there are that will pop out during a restoration.
