Believe it or not, Stainless steel rust, specially the lower end ones. I think it's T316, type used in dairy and food industry, those do not rust. *shiner*

Funny. Tell that to my STAINLESS hockey skate blades that had surface rust after a year of neglect.

Can stainless steel rust ?

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel is based on the formation of a very thin passive layer on its surface. Corrosion occurs when this passive layer is destroyed.

well you could always get in it, take it up to 88mph. don't forget to set the time for before winter and stick it in your garage. then it wouldn't get snowed on. ha ha. j/k.

I'd buy one only for the novelty of owning a DeLorean... but that's about it. Then I'd have to do all the BTTF mods... :D

Delorians are the s*it
maybe mcfly can teach me how to drive it the day i get one
there is a $5000 upgrade that most delorian shops will do
bring the motor up to a wopping 191hp....not bad
although its not close to the GTO which delorian also designed

That DeLorean is at my friend's shop. There's not much to worry about, it won't rust. I'll be able to offer dyno runs at the shop in a few months. Maybe I'll post here when it's ready and see who is interested in a dyno day.

That would be sweet, what kinda work is getting done to it, if any?

My friend owns the garage where the Delorean is. A customer brought the car in last year for work, and I think my friend now owns it. (I forget the details of how that happened, but I think the owner wanted to get rid of it)

If you go to my website and click the products page, you will see the dyno.

In that picture, we were using it as a "rolling road" which means we didn't have to go for a drive to tune the car you see there.

Late last summer we got a data aquisition system from Germany to plot hp/torque but there were some glitches with some of the hardware. Hopefully those should be fixed in about a month. I've been busy so haven't worked on getting the dyno ready over winter, but now I realise it's spring soon...

Here's the system we will be using:

word is that dmc (delorean) was suppose to release a turbo version of the car, seeing how it was a very slow sports car, and consumers were not buying. But at the time of release the company went under, too bad.
