This is my 1981 DeLorean. I just purchased it December 23rd 2014. It is a bit of a project but should turn out great over time.
So far, I have discovered that the car was originally sold by John Hines Pontiac in San Diego and then went to the Tacoma, Washington area before Dallas, Texas. Once in Dallas, a little work and updating was done on it before being parked for the last 14-15 years.
I will do my best to catalog my progress on here
12/27 - Fuel tank drained in preparation to be cleaned and the fuel system flushed.
12/29/2014 - Brake System drained and flushed. Clutch hydraulic system drained and flushed. Emergency Brake adjusted. These system all seem to have returned to normal functionality.
12/30/2014 - Fuel Filter, Magnetic Drain Plug and 2 oil filters ordered from DMC Midwest
12/30/2014 - Gear oil drained and changed.
UPDATE AS OF 3/23/2018
A lot has been done to this car since I last updated it.
The car has a new interior - Carpet, Seats recovered (with seat heaters added), new dash and new binnacle.

I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/
