Subject: "D" fulfills "Make A Wish"

We were going to sell the "D", but there was a reason unknown to us 
at the time for keeping it--his name is Will--a young man of 14 years 
with an amazing attitude for what he is experiencing, and a great 
zest for life--and an immense love of automobiles--the DeLorean is at 
the TOP OF THE LIST!--through a friend we heard about Will and his 
illness--yesterday we drove to his home. His bedroom was filled with 
pictures, models, and posters of cars, but it was obvious the 
DeLorean was his favorite.  We handed over the keys to Dave, who owns 
a car restoration business, who had befriended Will--giving him rides 
in vintage sports cars, Mercedes, BMWs, Spiders--but what Will really 
wanted was to ride in a DeLorean. Through our mutual friend Dave 
heard about our car and contacted us. The look on Will's face when he 
saw the car words cannot describe--he just lit up !! The video 
camera was rolling and people were taking pictures. His parents 
helped him into the car and he and Dave, with Will's father and 
Will,s younger brother, Matt, following behind in Dave's Alfa R., 
went for a drive. A wonderful experience we were so happy to have 
provided for him; an incredible, delightful young man and a family 
with an abundance of love and an astounding attitude. We thank the 
Haskills and Dave for the experience to last a lifetime!

I had a few removed from my car by a "paintless" ding removal person.
They did a great job.  Ended up not getting one dent removed because it
would have meant removing the fender (and it's a pretty minor ding.)
I would imagine once I shine up the car you won't be able to tell anything
was done.

I would imagine the only caveat is that you could get a person that really
doesn't know what they are doing.  (I was comfortable because my family
has been in auto-body repair for 30+ years, and this fellow had done lots
of work for our shop.)

The Washington, DC DeLorean event will coincide with the Bowie British car 

I am wrapping up the final plans for the Bowie show and the Tucker 
collection. I'm trying to make hotel arrangements for those of you planning 
to attend both events.

    The Tucker car collection is scheduled for Saturday, June 23, 2001.
We can tour the collection and his "train set" in the afternoon. We will 
follow up with a tour of Washington, DC and dinner in Georgetown. (with 
plenty of parking)
(( Please email me with your suggestion of what you wany for dinner so that I 
can make reservations ))

Bring your Cameras!

    For those planning to drive their DeLorean, make sure that you cooling 
systems are free of air & up to date.
    The Bowie show is scheduled for Sunday, June 24, 2001, at Allen's Pond 
Park. The fields open at 8:00am.
All car must be pre-registered. They will not allow anyone to pay at the 
gate. The field has been limited to just 400 cars. Since we had close to 1000 
cars before, the preregistrations are filling up fast.

For Eurofest attendee's,

 Along with our other DeLorean parts, we have a large quantity of "New Old Stock" Gas ( petrol) tanks..I know they are a bit bulky, but we could take a few to Eurofest...they do not have the baffles or senders, but are new, with all the blanking bungs in me privately if you want one bringing..they are cheap!!!!

Subject: Re: Gas Tank Fixes

The use of a straight fuel line hose in the gas tank for the fuel 
pick up line is not recommended. Because the hose needs to bent at 
certain points this will cause a restriction. Even though the hose 
does not seem kinked, it will over time. Heat and just the plain Fuel 
itself will normally soften the hose a little which will cause it to 
kink if it is bent when it's not made to bend. Another example would 
be cooling lines. If you took a straight coolant line and bent it 
into position, it looks like it will work. Put a few miles on it with 
the heat and fluids and you'll see the line will start to kink at the 
bend and restrict the flow of coolant...that's why there are pre-
fabricated bent hoses.

It's recommended to use the pre-fabricated bent fuel pick up hoses 
that the Delorean vendors carry. When it is installed it will 
naturally lay in position with all of the bends in its proper 
determined place. They are new...not NOS and are also extremely 
durable. I believe Rob has spent about 3 or more years researching 
the different materials that submersible fuel lines are made of and 
found an extremely long lasting durable one. Most lines after being 
put into a tank full of gas will either dry out and crack or soften 
too much where it will collapse. The one that Rob has found has not 
experienced either problem.
