    Does this look like a former DeLorean to you?

    Supposedly the remains of 05123 on iaai, presumably from the CA fires

    but that looks more like a mustang to me?

    VIN 2743, B/A, Frame 2227, engine 2320

    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"

    Doesn't look wide enough.

    Round headlights? Doesn't look DeLoreanish to me.

    We've seen enough burned DeLoreans to know what they look like. Maybe someone tried their hand at insurance fraud? All it takes is buying a set of VIN plates since there are no other matching numbers on the car.

    I agree (not a D). Those look like round headlights, and if those are the headlights then the engine is in the wrong place too. Would help if there were more pictures.

    Looks like a metal front bumper, engine remnants under hood, way to much metal on the top of the fender adjacent to the hood line, at the rear it looks like a metal door jamb, and the list goes on.

    I'm going to guess an old Fiat or Lancia
