Delivery-Mileage 1981 DeLorean is Actually Not For Sale

Enter Back to the Future reference here.

Barn finds and time capsules are always exciting, but when you’re talking about the car that invented movie time travel, a rare 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 with only 309 miles on the clock is something that can really fly you back to the past. The car was discovered in California by a local dealer who was offered a trade by a mysterious client: the man wanted a 1966 Corvette 427 Coupe, and asked if the dealer would have any interest in this barely-driven 1980s classic.

Pouncing on the opportunity, the dealer, Mike Vietro, tried to keep his hands off the car for as long as he could, but ended up washing it, servicing its brakes, suspension struts and tires, replacing the coolant and oil. Ready to make the car his own or sell it off to the highest bidder, Vietro called in the owner to take one final look at the revamped car. Seeing it back in its original condition, the owner fell back in love with it, and decided to pay for the Corvette and keep the DeLorean for himself.
