Subject: Florida DeLorean Club

Hello Guys and Girls.

My original post for interest in a Florida DeLorean Club resulted in 12
positive replies.  I have since sent a questionare to those and any other
Florida Owners I know of.  If you have not already responded from the first
posting and are a Florida, (even part time) owner of a DeLorean, (or wish
you were).  Please drop me a line.  We are looking for an interesting place
for a fall (they say it may even drop below 80 next week)... tech
session/meeting.  I have met or talked with owners who would love to attend
such a meeting but are hesitant to drive 400 miles to get there.

Remember, We respect individual privacy and do not promote any particular
businesses or provide email addresses to any commercial concern.  We are
strictly interested in having a local "social support group" of DeLorean
Owners to help promote the longevity and safety of our cars.  Of course
having a little fun along the way wouldn't hurt.

Thanks for your interest.
Randy Stribling, Tampa.   vin 3228  Aug 81

Hey guys,
   Does anyone know the dimensions of the radio cavity?  Does anyone know
the size of the front and rear speakers?
Thanks

Less then 2 weeks until the Delorean Fall Foliage Tour in RI,

Newport with a little luck so I encourage anyone who can attend to 
please do so. There should be some great photo opportunities also!

Subject: Rockville Maryland Car Show


On October 14 2000, the always popular Rockville Car Show will be held at the
Rockville Maryland  Civic Center.
While this show is open to cars pre-1975 only, this year they are having a
special Millenium display in addition to the 600 or so regular display
vehicles.  One specially chosen car for each year 1900 - 2000 has been
invited to display in the special Millenium section of the show.
I am pleased that my Delorean has been chosen for 1981.  If you can make this
fine show, stop by to say hello!

Just a reminder that DeLorean Expo 2000 in Las Vegas is only 1 month 
away on November 9 - 11.  Registration before Oct. 22 would be most 
desirable.  More

Subject: fuel mixture

My D's fuel mixture is all messed up.  It's running so rich that it's
billowing grey smoke out the back (and obviously really really smells). 
Besides making sure the airway is clear and setting the CO screw setting
correctly, is there anything else I should check?  Could this be due solely
to failing lambda circuitry?

Also, a jumper wire was run from the right contact of fuse #1 to the
positive fuel pump terminal, and the white/purple to the fuel pump positive
was cut.  Is this a valid solution?

ALSO, my console lights intermittently go on when the key is turned to the
first click (accessory position?) This is the one that gives power to my
windows motors.  Besides a failing relay/contacts, what could be the problem
with this?

thanks for any/all help.. :P

Jim

Subject: A DMC watch for the mailing list

[MODERATOR'S NOTE: This is not an invitation to re-start the DMC watch
thread. If you are interested, please respond directly to John only.]

I had been thinking about having a watch made that would compliment the
Delorean's class and style.  I contacted TIMEX, a company which I believe
makes a quality product, at a reasonable price.  The rep said that they
could make a watch for us with a silver color "DMC" logo printed on the face
for $41.00 (this is a $55.00 list price watch, and the same price as you
would find in Kmart!).  I need to fill 50 orders before they will print
these watches.  If you are interested in ordering a watch please email me at
jschwab(AT)utk.edu . The watch can be viewed at:
web.utk.edu/~jschwab/delorean .

It will be:
Dark metallic blue dial w/ silver color "DMC" logo
Luminescent hands
Day - Date window
Stainless steel adjustable bracelet with fold-over clasp
Removable links
Water resistant to 30-m
One year guarantee from TIMEX

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
Do not send money yet!  I need 50 people to order these.  Please email me
and let me know that you would like to order one, then I will take orders.
If I get over 100 orders I will be adjusting the price DOWN, I am not trying
to make any money, just a watch.

Thanks!

Subject: Re: fuel mixture

Jim,

It sounds like some one has done some sloppy rewiring in your electrical
compartment. If the fuel pump is running through the right contact of fuse
#1 than the pump is hot wired to the ignition side of the electrical system
with no fuse protection. This
will overload that circuit, if there is no fuse to the fuel pump or RPM
relay than you have a potential fire hazard. Before working on your fuel
injection system I would suggest that you install an in-line fuse to protect
the fuel pump circuit. You can contact us directly for instructions.

Your console light (AC panel) problem is probably due to some additional
wiring modifications. Once you get your electrical problems corrected we
will help you with your fuel mixture.

Subject: Delorean Fall Foliage Tour

The  Delorean Fall Foliage Tour is in less then 2 weeks and I am 
trying to finalize everything. Because we have people traveling in 
from 7 states I thought it would be a little easier if I pushed the 
travel times out by an hour.

Note: Dinner is still at 6:30 p.m. in Westerly RI.  
 
I hope that a later start time will accommodate more peoples needs, 
feel free to give me your feed back. 
If you have not sent in your registration form or made your hotel 
reservation yet please do so as soon as possible. If you need a copy 
of the registration form or itinerary please contact me at 
mdeluca_at_dml_comtechpst.com  or go to 
http://hometown.aol.com/delorean31/fall.html  or
http://homestead.juno.com/tristatedocs/FallFoliageTour.html           
               


Here is a new tentative route and meeting points and times for the 
Fall Foliage Tour. Oct 20,21 & 22
 
Tentative route and time.
 
1. Staring Locations in Philadelphia Area and New Jersey is still 
being worked out by Mid Atlantic people. Head up NJ Trpk to Palisades 
Center (big shopping Mall) this would be one of meeting points.

in 
CT. to the McDonald's rest stop right on I 95 between exit 9&10 in 
Darien (this is where I will join in and the people from LI or Down 
State NY. This may also be good for some CT people as well). 
Approximate Distance 32 MI, travel time 35 min.
3. Depart McDonald's at 12:15 am and head to Via I-95 throughout CT
to 
Old Mystic Village for lunch (and meeting location for New England 
people). 
Note: There are several rest stops on I- 95 through CT we could add 
them if necessary.
       Approximate Distance is 93 MI travel time 101 min.
4. Arrive in Old Mystic Village at 2:00-2:15 PM, Brake for lunch Hook 
up with people from New England.
Depart for hotel in Westerly 3:30 to 4:00 and check in at 4:30
Approximate Distance 12 MI, travel time 32 min.
 
If someone familiar with the Palisades center could pick a good place 
at the mail for everyone to meet please let me know and I will post 
the info.

Subject: National Geographic Article

DMCers,

I was in Tokyo on business this past weekend and came across an old copy of
National Geographic which mentions the DMC. It is the April, 1981 issue. It
had an article about the 'Changing Industry in Northern Ireland' with a
photo of a very early prototype. Its being worked on in a wooden barn by a
squad of tie & collar gentlemen ... presumably the design team or Lotus? By
the 'loud' chequered turquoise trousers of one of the party I presume he was
American (dress code in Britain in the '70s never fell to those depths!!!).
Did the DMC ever have any other mention in Nat.Geog.?

Cheers,              IAN (HongKong)
