Well done on hunting all these out, I like this but seems strange that there's only US pictures on the listing. Mansfield area so I'm sure someone local could pop along and check it out. Might be able to get a reasonable deal on this with so many for sale at the moment.

You'd think some pics of it in the UK would be better.

I like the aerial position on this one, hidden in the rear vents.

Tris.

P.s. My spare time at the moment is spent hunting for DeLoreans for sale. Quite enjoying it Smile

Mansfield is just down the road from me, I've never seen that car before, is it one that's been
recently imported, done up, and being sold on?

Not too sure Claire - I would guess if it was an owner driver, we'd know more about the car generally.
I can only guess that it is as you say, and is being 'flipped' perhaps?

Been a lot of them over the last year and a fair few more to come me thinks, I think this winter will be a good time to buy.

Hi Tristan
if your ready to buy Dave Howarth is defiantly 1 of the guys you should call Dave's always been a pleasure to talk to his knowledge    of the Delorean is incredible & he loves to share his passion for the car.
So when you've got a spare hour give Dave a call

Cheers Chris J,

I last spoke to Dave back in 2004 (ish) when I was looking to buy PSO 69W, the converted right hooker.

Unfortunately, like then, the car is ever so slightly out of reach for me. As my salary has increased, so has the value of the DeLorean..... Sad

But, as I've mentioned to Chris P - 2016 is my year. And I'm hoping that with a bit of ducking and diving, the Summer may be the time I'm able to move forward....... we shall see Smile
(and then I'll be pestering each and every one of you more than I am now!! Lol)

Tris
