    My dream car, VIN 03676!!!

    After 30 years of dreaming of owning one of these beautiful, rolling pieces of art, I finally can say that I'm "Living the Dream"! It is VIN 03676, Sept. '81 build. The previous owner swapped the K-Jet system/intake for a Peugeot 604 2bbl intake and a Motorcraft 2bbl 1.21 carb. I only drove it around the parking lot at DMC Midwest, but I fell in love the moment I laid my eyes on it. It obviously needs some interior love, the stainless needs some dents repaired and a re-grain, bumpers need a re-paint, louvers need a scuff/repaint, etc, but it's a running/driving project that I can cruise around as I piece it back to my idea of perfection! It's currently at DMC Midwest getting a few things done (e-brake fixed, steering bushing installed, putting on a mint flat hood to replace the dented up grooved hood, and an AC leak test. After that, it's getting shipped up to me in Superior WI.

    Also, I need to give a huge shout-out to my good friend Nick Pelant for showing me the amazing collection of DeLoreans he and his father has last fall and reigniting the spark I had for these cars. If it wasn't for him, I probably would still have the DeLorean love hidden away in the back of my mind. This happened because of you, so thank you Nick, from the bottom of my heart. I'll always be greatful for everything you've done, and for your amazing friendship.

    If so then it's the car that was supposedly restored on the "Lost in Transmission" TV show. Actually I think the show just swapped another car in it's place and passed it off as restored. There was something about it that didn't add up and if memory serves they had 2 cars (although one incomplete) when they were done and somewhere along the way vin 1269 was the end result.

    Last night as I was perusing YouTube I came across some videos of this car. Funny to see it here today. Congrats.
