    VIN 6739. Twin turbo, rare double stripes.

    Haven't seen too many with both stripe packages. Pretty sweet and a twin turbo!!

    Two stripes are a bit too much...as James Espey once said, itís like wearing suspenders with a belt.

    Somebody must have liked it to have done it and paid for it. As for how it looks, it is a matter of taste and we can all figure out where this is going. My guess is they wanted the car to stand out even among other Deloreans, especially because it is a twin turbo.

    If I were to guess, I'd say the wide black stripes are original to the car, but the thin grey stripes were added more recently. The thin grey stripes tend to bleach out and fade after decades of being on a car, but these still look good. The black stripes have the typical fading of the "DMC", though... which suggests they have been on the car long-term.

    Neato. Speaking of stripes, anyone know where I can get a set of the upper thin stripes? My car came with them, but they're original and looking pretty bad, as they're peeling off in spots.
