    Unfortunately it's real. I also am not happy when my friends send it to me. It sends me into a rant!

    There are multiple deloreans that catch fire every year. Ask Cameron or Danny at dmc hunington beach alone. Danny told me he gets like 3-6 fire cars a year there alone. Not all total losses. Alot of these cars were being found, and people were or currently are running 40+ year old original rubber lines ona rear engine car which when a fire starst they dont notice until its too late. That particular one you posted was a douche that killed his delorean for social media stuff. The biggest loser of all time.
    - OCT81 DeLorean DMC-12 Vin 5312 "DeLores"
    - 1978 Lotus Esprit S2 "Problem Child"
    - 1995 Mazda Miata Turbo "Happy Daily Driver"

    I repair Lotus's with DeLorean parts

    I can expect anything but a intentional criminal act!

    The original lines where polyamide, aka nylon. They had rubber over the lines, only to protect them from abrasion. Any way they should still be replaced at this point. You can still get the polyamide and press them on to the old fittings witch is far cheaper than buying a new set.
