I guess there is a time for most classic car owners to have to car hauled off. Unfortunately, that time came for me.
A little back story. Back in January, the car died on me while I was sitting at a stop light. At first, I thought the car was not warmed up. After restarting it, it died again at the light. Thankfully, it did not die in the intersection. I figured that it was an RPM issue, drove home that night while trying to maintain a higher RPM. This meant revving the engine while at stops.
I drove it a few more times after that. Each time, it would die on me during low RPM. A few times at a stop light, once while pulling into a parking spot. Trying to restart a car while at a light is not fun. I guess it is better than having it stall on a highway.
Part of the full service that DeLorean Motor Company provides is pick up and drop off. So, a call went out.

Danny came by with a truck and trailer to load up the car. The car started fine as usual, but I am sure after running it for a few blocks it would die, again.

Strange to see my car moving down the road, from the outside of the car.

I told him the issues I was having and some other things I wanted worked on while they have the car. Stay tuned, I will update with what has been done. Should be ready in about two weeks.
