Someday I will own a DeLorean. It won’t initially be a nice one though, because I am way to cheap to buy anything decent. It will probably be a total mess of a car that nobody else will touch. It will look like a pile of charred stainless steel that was hit by a train, and then dumped into a muddy river for a few years. Yeap, that is the one that I would buy. Haters gonna hate, but I love seeing a car brought back from the worst of the worst. The only thing better than that is being part of the restoration process. That said, assuming that you are not quite as cheap as me, but pretty darn close, I have a treat for you today. It comes in the form of good news in bad news though.
Good News: This DeLorean was not hit by a train! Fantastic right?
Bad News: It was on fire, but the current owners says that it merely “had minor fire in cabin“. Understatement of the year? Absolutely. We all know that fires are put out with water, so I think we can also assume that this car was filled with thousands of gallons of H2O as well. That doesn’t scare you right? Good!
Just less than 9 grand is all it will take to bring this beauty to your driveway. It’s just too bad it wasn’t hit by a train, or I may be a buyer. Ah well, better luck next time I guess…

A few months ago, we talked about a Blue Painted Delorean that had a colorful, yet unconfirmed history with it. With some of our DMC expert readers chiming in on the topic, along with the owner himself, the story evolved into a far more legitimate sounding tale. Today I am bringing to you a sweet candy colored, DMC-flavored first hand confirmation to one of these legends. Continue reading You Want To See The Candy Apple Red Delorean?
Today I received a text message from a friend with a great picture attached. It was the blue painted Delorean seen here. Apparently a friend of a friend bought it recently and is going to be stripping the totally tubular 1980’s blue paint off it in the…… future.
I then did a little research on “The Blue Delorean” (how many can there possible be?) and found an eBay listing that flew under the radar a few months ago. eBay Item # 290503186893.
There is a time to buy and a time to sell, and for this Twin Engine Delorean owner…..It’s time to sell. Obviously, I could fill an entire paragraph with Back to the Future references, and maybe even include a picture of Michael J. Fox sporting red leather to really drive some points home….. but I’m not going to. I think when you look at these pictures, you will draw your own opinions, and likely want to take this car back to 1982 before it had a Cadillac V8 and a Prelude engine stuffed into it. eeeek!
Front engine: 2.0liter dual overhead cam Honda engine from a third generation Prelude.
Rear engine: 8.2liter high compression Cadillac engine, from a 1970 Eldorado.
