    That one looks pretty decent IMHO.

    That 780 would still be a pretty in depth swap as far as the electrical is concerned. Not as straight forward as a 260

    I'm just the messenger!! Don't shoot me please! !

    I'm with you, not just about a Bertone but almost any car. Unless it's truly wrecked I like to see cars fixed and driven. I just have an interest in other PRV powered machines and started this thread mostly out of curiosity and the off chance another D owner might benefit.

    I don't know - I know a guy in Canada that took a DeLorean that was worse off and completely resurrected it

    I really like that 264 Volvo... But. All the "performance" of a DeLorean, more weight, and less cool. Naah, not for me.

    Anyone looking for an Eagle Premier motor to build... should come down my way to some U-pull it junk yards. At Joes E-Z Pull in Newringgold PA, Motors (U pull) are $124 out the door. Now, on any given day there is about a 50/50 shot you will find a premier, and about a 50/50 shot as to if there is any chance that motor is worth taking... But. If anyone wants me to, I can keep an eye out and report back.

    Wow, I haven't seen any for less than $300. I hope they're still around when my engine dies and I decide to replace it with a 3.0L.

    Bargain build-it-yourself engine for only $1500.

    Probably all there, but who knows?

    Anyone know anything about the BMW engined car?

    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"
