VEHICLES COVERED: 1981 Delorean DMC

WHAT WENT WRONG: An owner of a pristine ’81 Delorean brought it in to a repair shop to fix an overheating problem. The garage was a huge 40,000-square-foot facility filled with cars and equipment when he dropped it off, and it appeared to be a reputable business. But days turned into months, and the shop delayed the repairs. Calls to the garage were ignored. After two years, the man finally got a call, but not the one he wanted. He was informed to get a tow truck and to take the car home – the business had been closed.
