Subject: Funny trucker quotes from Cleveland trip

Here's some funny, and moreover, uneducated quotes from truckers on CB
channel 19 on the way to Cleveland.  Just goes to show, everyone thinks
they're an expert on these cars.

------------St. Louis to Indianapolis--2 DeLoreans

"Whoa!  There goes two DeLoreans chasing each other", "Yep, hand stamped
aluminum them are."

"Those were made by GM right?", "No, Ford"

------------Indianapolis to Auburn, IN--3 DeLoreans

Nothing really that funny, just a lot of "WOW! Three DeLoreans!!"

------------Auburn, IN to Cleveland--7 DeLoreans

"Look at the seven Lamborghinis!!!!!"

"What the hell are those little gray cars goin east bound????"

"Those were sold at the Ford dealerships, right??"

"Hmmmmm, they're all the same color!"

"How much those cost??", "Oh they were just under 82 grand"

"There must be a Back to the Future convention." (he was serious!)

"Those must be the only seven left in existance!!!!"

Again, lots of "Look at the 5 (or 6,7) DeLoreans eastbound!"  For some
reason they only counted 5 or 6 most of the time--who knows.

-------------Holiday Inn Cleveland--about 60 DeLoreans

The hotel maintinance guy grabs me as I get in the hotel elevator.......He
says the girl he works with told him that most states OUTLAWED DeLoreans
because they were too fast for the road.  YEAH RIGHT--I only wish!

-------------Columbus, OH gas station on the way home--Just my D

Guy comes up to me......"Yup you don't see ANY of these anymore....the few
that are left no one drives, they just sit in the garage or museums."  I
said "Well, there were over 100 in Cleveland yesterday, most of which were
driven in from all over the country.  After I get home I will have driven
mine over 1600 miles this week."  Response........"Oh."

No talk from the truckers today though.  Only heard one guy say something.

The BS stories that go along with this car.......they just baffle the mind
how
some people could come up with them.  By yourself a CB off eBay for $20 and
just listen to the crap these "experts" preach to each other about your car.
Funny stuff.

Subject: DeLorean guitar

Dear group,

I hope you have seen the DMCNews pictures by David Swingle from the DeLorean 
Car Show, and I hope you saw the electric guitar that (sorry, forgot his 
name) made. He let me hold it, and he told me the front and back was made 
from an actual DeLorean, the hood, actually. It was cool, on the back it had 
the VIN of the DeLorean and a matching VIN on the back of the head of the 
guitar. It also had the ignition, the hazard button, the headlight button, 
and on the back it had the gascap.

The guitar was a Fender Telecaster.

Subject: Cleveland will be remembered

Hey List,

      I just wanted to take the time to thank Ken Koncelik for putting the 
Cleveland show all together.  I don't think there would have been another 
chance where I could put the faces to the e-mail addresses that I have seen 
online for the past few years.  I really have to say the highlight of the 
trip was when I got a chance to meet JZD.  That was an experience to be 
remembered.  He was a very nice guy to do when he did.  I got 2 pics signed 
and the door to my glove compartment :)!!.  I think the best part was when me 
and my dad were on our way home, we saw JZD and his daughter outside the 
hotel and they both waved good-bye to me.  I just wanted to take the time to 
thank all the members of the DML that I met and just say that it was very 
nice meeting all of you and I really had a great time talking to each and 
every one of you.  Thank you to Dave Stragand for bringing "Vixen" she was 
really nice to see.  So tell us...how is it driving a De Lorean with no body 
panels, no glass and a twin turbo engine on it?  Must weigh like 1000 pounds 
right now.  Dave Swingle, it was nice to put the face to one of the 
moderators to our mailing list.  Congrads on getting the plaque for the DML, 
you definitely deserve it!  Another DMLer that was great meeting, was Erik 
Geerdink and his father.  Lets bring both of our cars to the next show, deal? 
 It was also nice meeting Michael Babb, Bob Brandys, Brandon Moody, Michael 
DeLuca, Ken Montgomery, Bill Schafer and his son, James Espey, Steven Wynne, 
Warren from DMC Houston, Sean Howley.  I'm sure I missed a few of you and I'm 
sorry for that, these are all the people I could remember.  I really must say 
that everyone's De Loreans I saw was kept in really nice condition and thats 
what I want my De Lorean to look like when I finish it.  I really have to say 
that everyone that I talked to and showed them my pictures to were really 
impressed with how much work I am doing to my car.  I really must say that 
when I got home today and saw what condition my car was in, I could imagine 
it looking just like one of those I saw in Cleveland and I felt a little 
better about myself and I just have to take my time and it will be done 
before I know it.  Thanks again for everything!

Later,
Nick

Subject: DeLorean Car Show

Dear Members,

I would like to thank everyone that helped out and the people that put on the 
DeLorean Car Show this weekend, because it was a very fun and educational 
event. Since a couple days ago was my first time ever riding/seeing/touching 
a DeLorean, this was a very special event. Of course I had seen a DeLorean 
before, but not in real life. I had a great time seeing everyone, including 
John DeLorean, Kathryn, and all of the people there that you talk to on the 
DML. I would also like to congratulate all of the members of the DML for 
being the largest group participation, and receiving an award for that. Thank 
you Dave for accepting the award for the work you have done on the DML. 

I would also like to thank the people that brought their DeLorean for 
everyone to see.

Thanks,

John Feldman

Hope to see everyone in Memphis in two years. I will most likely have a 
DeLorean by then : ).

Subject: Happy DeLorean Stories?

Last month we had a thread inviting people to tell of their happy times
with their DeLoreans, instead of the technical problems that we normally
discuss.  Now that the Cleveland Show is over it seems like there ought
to be more of these stories to tell.  I will be happy to start.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
On the Driving Tour we had about 45 DeLoreans plus over a dozen
non-DeLoreans.  To my knowledge no cars had any mechanical troubles,
despite hot weather and heavy city traffic.

The first stop was at the NASA Glenn Research Center.  My minivan full
of support crew (including DMLer Shannon Yocom and his wife Jenette) was
the last vehicle to arrive, about 20 minutes after the last DeLorean
pulled in.  We got there just in time to see a stream of rocket
scientists pouring out of several laboratories.  They were coming to
look at all the pretty stainless steel cars outside their buildings (it
took two lots to hold us all, increasing our visibility).  Those
DeLorean owners who lingered outside ended up answering a lot of
questions.

That morning, I'm afraid America's finest minds in aerospace propulsion
systems did not get much work done.

The moral:  We DeLorean owners have a special responsibility.  We must
be careful and use our powers for good and not evil!

Does anyone else have a happy story to add to this thread?

Dear John,
Well I took apart the ac vents and it seems as though a piece was missing in
the back.  The part where the adjustable louvers are ties together.  I made a
piece that replaced that and they work pretty good.  Got the ac working and
can point it where I want it now but that fan failer light comes on when the
ac is working (faintly) and then it goes out.  Is this normal?

Subject: Carpet for a DeLorean-$360

Hello List,
    Someone on the dml told me about a place in florida called Hydro-electric 
that makes carpet sets for 1960-present autos.  They have a set for the 
DeLorean which includes 14 pieces in any color you want.  I had them send me 
6 samples and I think I am going to put a light grey in my black interior.  
The kit is only $360.00 and the carpet is not stiff so it will fit easily 
they say.  has anyone else on the list tried this?  If you have, how do you 
like it?  you can email them at Hydroel_at_dml_ao.com if you want a kit.  just 
curious to hear what you think.

Thanks

Subject: Re: DeLorean Coyote

A while back the Coyote converted DeLorean was for sale. The asking 
price was $60,000. The ad was placed I believe in the 
Excite/Classifieds 2000 for sale section. Pretty much all the 
description for the car said was that it was the same car used in the 
show, and that the camera mounts were still in place. A small photo 
was with the car, it wasn't very clear, but the camera mounts were 
visible. There are 2 seperate versions of the "Coyote", a kit car, 
and the DeLorean conversion. The first did not have opening doors, 
you apparently had to get in Dukes of Hazzard style. The man who 
played the judge (can't remember his name) was getting older, and 
getting in and out of the car was getting harder and harder for him. 
This is where the DeLorean came in. The gullwing doors made it alot 
easier for him, plus the car could be chopped to look like the 
Coyote. Rear mounted engine, so the front could be exchanged with the 
kit car, and so on. As far as what happened to the car after the show 
was canceled, or how the current owner ended up with it, I don't 
know. But I do hope that this info has helped some what.

Hi all,
I would like to thank everyone who emailed me about my accident. Guys, you
gave me hope. Right after the accident I was devastated, but I recovered
with the help from a lot of people from DML, especially people like Dave
Stragand, Orlando Lopez, Mike Sullivan and others. Thank you guys. You
really helped me. I have an isurance guy coming to make an estimate on the
car today (just a rough estimate), then the car will be shipped to DMC Joe
for repairs. I'm sure I will continue to live the dream.... and that's
thanks to the DML.
Thanks DML.
I will not be able to keep you updated on the status of my car as I am
leaving for Europe tommorow (tuesday) morning. I'll be back with you guys as
soon as I get my hands on a computer.

Take care everyone and drive safely,

Fellow DMCer's,
First let me say, "Ken, You be the man!!!". The show was beyond the terms 
great. For those of us lucky enough to have been there, you know what I mean. 
The behind the scenes work you and everyone put into this event made it an 
experience to remember forever. Thank you to Ken and Richard, and to your 
familles for all the support that they gave. Mike and Patti, (I skipped the 
cruise -will not make this mistake next time!), Kathryn, and John Z.. 
A special thanks to Stephen Wynne for using the motor home to part the 
traffic for us on the way in rush hour! 
I still think that Dave S should have told people that Vixen was complete on 
the start of his trip and that someone had striped the car (stainless panels 
and all) at a truck stop. (Would have won the hard luck story award.)
It is amazing that we as a group not only pulled this off, but are now 
posting photos for all those that missed it. What a world we live in!
The Tech sessions were very informative, thanks to all that put these on.
Besides the site of all 100+ Deloreans seeing old friends and making new ones 
is what this show is all about. Who would have thought that at my table would 
be the official Delorean ambassador to Costa Rica?
 No question will be in Memphis in 2002. Beale Street get ready the D's are 
coming!!!!

The DeLorean spare tires just don't work well.  In fact, donut spares in
general just don't work very well.  If you want to keep your donut spare
filled, you have to reinflate it about every week.

Subject: Re: Happy DeLorean Stories?

I had a wonderful time meeting so many people from the DML.  Finally 
putting a face to an e-mail address or name was great.  Mingling and 
chatting with everyone in person was a real treat.  And I walked 
(drove) away with many new friends.  Even though my Delorean wasn't 
there ( please come home soon!) I still had a great time. 
One moment that I'll never forget was on Saturday morning when I was 
in the Hotel lobby walking towards the restraunt, John Delorean and 
his daughter walked out and said goodmoring.  I said goodmorning, and 
we chatted for a while.  He wanted to give me $100 to buy him lottery 
tickets. (the night before I won 4 prizes at the dinner)  I never 
thought I'd be walking down a hallway and have John Delorean say 
goodmorning to me.
Thanks to everyone who made me feel not so lonely without my 
Delorean. 

Also, thank you Ken!!  you put on a great show!

You need a Fanzilla from PJ Grady, or bypass fix.

Subject: Aircon Pipes

Temperatures in the high 80's in England. 350 mile trip to make in 2
days time and what happens?. Air conditioning pipe bursts!!! No way I
can get the job done before I go, but perhaps the temperature will drop
and make things more comfortable.
    However, when I get to do the job on my return, I see that the
manual says that I have to raise the body from the chassis about 2cms.
OK, its only 10 bolts to undo, but is that really necessary? I'm sure
someone out there knows a shortcut. If there isn't one then OK  it's
body up. Any ideas?

It sounds as if the Cleveland  Event was a real fun affair. In 3 weeks
time it looks as if we shall have about 20 Deloreans at an  annual event
in England called 'Supercar Sunday' at which there will be all sorts of
supercars from Ferraris, lamborghinis, Porsches, and of course 'D's. It
obviously can't compare with Your event in Cleveland, but it is
interesting to see that your next event will be in Graceland, Memphis,
Tennesee, as my wife is an Elvis fan and I might be able to  persuade
her that the trip might be worthwhile. I have to say that she is not
that keen on my 'dream', calling it ' a can of beans without the label'.
I'll have to convince her she's being a bit unfair!!

Subject: Where are the Delorean books?

It's been a long time since I've been on here, but they used to
advertise Delorean
autobiographies someplace. I only have one copy.  Does anyone have any
for
sale?
