You made a reproduction? Out of a Delorean?

I like the looks and I like the interior. I looked at one about 10years ago at a vintage car salon in Clearwater. That one had 10k miles on it, and it had a Volvo engine in it. They were asking 9800 for it back then.

Real quick.

The thought is tempting...
Cadillac Northstar V8 is a popular swap in these cars.

Well, I was in college in the mid to late 80's so I guess I didn't miss it, unlike some here who were crapping in diapers then.

Lol I did lots and lots of diaper crapping in the 80's =P

I grew up with Back to the Future and still love it. These cars will always be awesome to me. Now I know that I can own one someday

There has never been anything about the Delorean that did anything for me. It's ugly, slow and did I mention ugly. Also too expensive.

And Back to the Future sucks. I can't stand that **** movie.

Is that setup above going to be RF or something? I see the factory trans going up front...

What kind of transmission is that mated to the 2JZ? I don't see an adapter plate, yet I can't fathom what application Toyota would have for a 2WD longitudinal transaxle.

Registered for that linked forum, but haven't been approved yet.

Keep us informed on how they did that too, i find it intresting... Looking closely at the trans picture , its quite shiny around the bell housing. I bet they welded bell housings together....

Ok, I'm registered, approved, and I made a newbie intro post, and when I follow the link I still get:

Huh. Seems now that I've been given Rep for my stellar intro post I can access the linked page.

It does appear that he's taken the stock Delorean transmission and welded a new bellhousing to it. I'm guessing on that part based on jedduh01's observation (posted for more info) but he states that "I made the adapter, flywheel and clutch. I also had to fabricate the mainshaft and clutch fork."

Killer killer intro thread Joe.

And a part of you feels both terrified and excited at the same time, so you go over to him, and he grabs onto you and you tentatively take him in your hand, and suddenly time stands still as you experience the most unimaginably thrilling sense of total incomprehension mixed with joy, and after what seems like an eternity (but in reality couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 hours) you find yourself lying on the floor in a tangled mess of flesh and sweat and ecstasy and shame, looking up at your old man, his face a mask of knowing silence.

Actually, I think intro posts may even be a trifle more awkward than that...


But long story short, recently arrived back in FL, and got pointed over here by a couple of the loonies at miataturbo.net where I'm one of the mods. Something about a fellow stuffing a 2JZ into a poor little Delorean? Sounded like the sort of place I needed to check out.
