I have had my cable fall off the spool on me-- no
cruise, either.
I was just doing some quick full-throttle and instant
My throttle was "sticky" for a couple days before I
opened up the engine compartment to look for a vacuum
Still... the idea of a cruise interests me.

Thanks for the info. I called them, they want $550 for the system (not
installed). Most aftermarket systems are $100-$200... While it sounds
like the perfect system, a ~$400 price premium is just way too much.

I'll have to keep looking.

Subject: Delorean for sale????

Does anyone know of a Delorean with a blown engine and or tranny (5 
speed)that might be available for a reasonable amount?? Im looking 
to build a car, I wouldnt mind doing other work to it as well 
interior restoration etc... The only criteria thats of prime 
importance is a clean frame, 5 speed and straight stainless
thanks for the leads 

Harry VIN #2696

This is a tough one, its hard when dealing with an exotic/ classic 
car situation. Did you stress when you expected the work to be done, 
was it a back burner project?? When I bought my car I had it shipped 
to Rob direct (he saw it in person before I did) he asked when I was 
expecting for it to be ready, It didnt really need much but after 
lying dormant for 22 years it definitely required a huge service. 
Rob and co. after maybe a month or so finally had it ready and truly 
kept my dream car from becoming my worst nightmare ....the car was 
showroom and then some!! I strongly feel that Rob and crew are tops 
in what they do and am sorry to hear about your dilemma but, cant 
help but think there might be more to the story....Rob is an 
extremely nice, respectful, honest person. If he wasnt around 
(NYC here) I certainly wouldnt have bought the car. Good luck and 
BTW do you know of any mechanic that would want a customers car in 
the charge for that long of a time?? Even if its a Delorean?
