    - You'll want to be very careful with the spare. It's original rubber, prone to age-related blowouts. Slap some a new tire on it when you get a chance.

    - You mentioned a family in Houston. I can ship to them no problem, particularly with the DPI Option. Let me know.


    As for price, I've noticed a lot of them sell rather quickly at $200, so that's what I'll sell mine for, plus shipping. If you're still interested, send me a PM and we can work out the details
    That sounds very fair to me based on what I've seen them selling for recently as well, but I'm not buying.

    As to the rubber - usually the spares aren't in bad shape, as they're stored in the luggage compartment away from uv and ir spectral light radiation. Thus the only thing wearing on them is exposure to ozone and dry out from temperature/humidity swings. Usually if they won't hold air, it's because of the bead breaking. You can either have it bead sealed to the wheel/rim or tube it - both are viable options. However, if there's visible cracking on either the tread or sidewall, then it's junk and I personally wouldn't trust it.

    I just had my original rubber (which looked great) bead sealed and had it roadforce tested simulating up to a 3,000lbs load, and it held together just fine. I also slather it in a generous layer of this once a year:

    From the pics I saw, Shep's rubber looked pretty good, and upon closer inspection, I'd probably trust it once it was either tubed or bead sealed.

    However many people think that my position on 'vintage rubber' is insane, so as always, proceed with caution and make up your own mind

    Best luck to the parties regarding the sale

    Tire will be off this afternoon and the rim boxed and ready to ship. I'll send quote details to Shep later today. Once you guys are squared away it will go out as soon as tomorrow mornings pick up.

    Is Delorean the only car that people can ask $100 for a measly gas cap?!

    Shep, don't change anything on account of me. I was just remarking on how these cars have crazy prices for parts. I would ask Steve and Josh what they think a good asking price is that is fair for both you and the buyer. $25 seems a bit low now that you mention it.

    I'll do $30/shipped on the partially fudged-up locking gas-cap. Shoot me a PM with how you'd prefer payment (Paypal or a USPS money order snail mailed to your address).

    Also have a crapton of other random parts that I have yet to identify. All drivetrain parts.

    Any transmissions or shifter assemblies?

    Ditto - I'd like to see some pics of the mats as well

    Are they the original dealership juke backed wool mats?
