    Reward For Missing Delorean

    We are looking for a Delorean that was illegally removed from the state of Kansas. The car was a result of a default loan. There is a journal entry and order for immediate possession issued by Sedgwick County Kansas. This car belonged to my late brother-in-law. It has no clear title. We fear the car may be illegally sold or parted out. We believe the car is in the Huntsville, Texas area. The car has a Kansas license plate and the last 4 digits of the VIN is 4590. Note that the VIN plate may be missing. I will pay $500 cash for information leading to the location of this car. Please call me if you have information concerning this car. 316/393-1729.

    Curious how Shelby Profita fits into all of this. I guess he was the owner of 4590 before "the state of Kansas" starting looking for it....?

    This has become comical, a feeble prank to rub salt in the wounds I guess. This car was reposed by Kurt Fowler last year when I became homeless and am still searching for a place to live. I could probably hunt through the archives from when I had a facebook with detailed threats against my life and was in contact with lawyers. Very interesting,every life event include wedding anniversaries and birthdays this comes up. Pm sent, have a good day 😂

    My advice to you now would be not to spend any money on the car until you can clear up ownership. It could turn out that the car is not legally yours and be taken from you. If there was an intermediary you may have recourse against him for selling you something that he could not sell you legally. If the car is being repo'd directly you need to settle it or it can be taken back at any time by it's lawful owner.

    This is one of those things that we get about 10% of the story from both sides. Going to take at least 25% to interest me.


    FWIW a DeLorean is quite possibly one of the easiest cars to steal. The frame numbers rarely coincide with the vin, the engine numbers are not associated with the vin and the only two plates that have the vin stamped are easily replaced.

    I'm confused too.

    About a month ago, a guy named Bob Porter left a similar message on our Texas Club Website Guestbook page. I was thinking of taking it down, but if this is legitimate, I don't want to do an honest person a disservice. If it is a prank, I'd like to know too, so not to do the rightful owner a disservice either.

    Our last known location of the car is in Oklahoma City, OK.

    Reward For Missing Delorean

    From what I gather, it's a bitter ex brother in law posting these messages repeatedly to mess with his ex brother in law once memorable days arrive. Awful prank, but I guess people don't have much going on these days... an awful reminder that some great things you had were taken away?
