Hauling the DeLorean

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.

Official DeLorean trailer
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.

All secured and ready to hit the road
Off to see the wizard

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

Following my car in my other 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.
