    Looking in Florida

    Hey gang.
    I'm a former owner looking for a grey 5 speed in Florida. I'm currently looking at a nice looking car out of state, and I may very well go that direction. However I would like to give my home state a chance, as the idea and cost of shipping a car is kinda scary. I've made several trips to DMC FL, LOVE them but they are a bit dry on cars at the moment.
    I have a budget now in the mid thirties, If you know of or have anything you think I should take a look at please let me know,
    Thanks in advance for any replies, I've been reading a lot here and you guys are great!

    Thanks guys,
    While it looks like the forum was silent, I did receive a number of PMs about this thread with some helpful information.
    I have a deal that looks like its 90% in the bag, I will post with updates, but it looks like my search may be over.

    Welcome! I hope you have success with your search, if you find anything near the Tampa area and you want a second opinion let me know and I can help look at a car for you.

    Thanks. I bought a car!
    I called Mike at DMCMW about a car he had listed, unfortunately it had sold. However he told me his brother was interested in selling his DeLorean, a grey 5 speed with grooved hood, (oct 81 car) After some back and forth I decided to buy it. I've paid DMCMW for a complete break overhaul and as soon as thats done I'm having it trailered down to me here in Florida.

    Congrats on your purchase! What part of the state are you in? I'm in Central Florida.
