Subject: Car Shows/ show cars?

What's the big deal with letting people sit in your car?  As long is no
damage is sustained, who cares.  I'm still baffled about the insanity
that follows this car around... Brand new, top of the line condition
deloreans sell for $25,000- Do your friends not let you sit in their Ford
Explorer?  Or Honda Accord?  They're both more expensive cars...  Anyone
who wants can stop by my house in Massachusetts and sit in 1537.  Or on
it.  Or kick it.  Or take it for a lap around the block.  Try not to hit
anything.  Help yourself, it's unlocked.

1537

ps- here's an idea. . YOU sit in the car.  This will prevent MOST people
from trying to get in. :)

Has anyone been keeping track of what an excellent copy of SSI is worth?
There is currently one on eBay for $192.50.  I think this is the highest I

For starters, even if you only order one thing, know exactly what you want, 
and are off the phone (toll free- they're paying) in just a few minutes, it 
takes a certain amount of time and money to answer the phone, pack it, etc. 
But realistically, often we need to ask questions, and that takes a lot 
longer.  Sometimes we ask questions, like how to get our window back on 
track,  then say "Thanks!" and buy nothing, like I did with Rob Grady this 
week.  So a minimum order is common in any business that ships.  Or an added 
fee.  One of the companies my business buys from upped their minimum to $500. 
per delivery... (their truck.)  It's a reasonable request, even if it is 
inconvenient at times.  I sometimes add on an oil filter to go over the 25 if 
it's just a small order, or wait until I need more stuff. Keep a needs list 
... you'll get to $25. soon enough.

Paul, It is a chinese puzzle, but I can fix them/repair them as long as you

off . If you don't put the cap back on correctly, it will come apart. Unlike 
the window switches. The rocker mechanism is very touchy.

Subject: Car show manners

I've been to numerous car shows and I've only had 1 kid sit in the car
withour my permission.  I find that people are very respectful of my car
and the only "problem" (which isn't really a problem) is that people
have some intense need to have to touch the metal panels to really
believe they are not painted or coated.    I don't mind at all and tell
people to touch it.  I have my SS spray cleaner ready to wipe up finger
prints!

It helps people get a better feel for the car and it gives you a chance
for people to see how you clean your car.....which is one of the most
posed questions.   Car shows are great, I've made a sign that sits in
the engine bay that reads "I'm a Peugot Renault Volvo V-6, not a Ford or
Chevy!"  This eliminates the other most asked question!!!

The fascias are 5mph impact zones - ie no damage at 5mph. The 30mph story is
that at 40mph the DeLorean withstands impacts as well as it legally has to at
30mph.

Your problem is more than likely related to a problem in the constant idle speed circuit. 

Concerning your battery; any standard size name brand battery that will fit in the battery compartment with side mounted connector posts should give satisfactory performance.

  #10901 has developed an idling problem this last month.  When I put in the
  clutch and roll to a stop, the idle drops and the motor dies.
  I remember the old carburated cars had a solenoid next to the carburator
  that would hold the idle high for a couple of seconds when the throtle was
  closed, is there something like this on a fuel injected system that should
  be holding the idle up for a couple of seconds when the gas pedal is
  released?

  Also, it looks like the battery has bit the dust, guess I'll be going to
  look for a new one today, any recommendations?

Subject: Re: Car Shows

When you display your DeLorean at ANY car show open to the general public keep in mind that you are the owner of an exotic, specialized, automobile; no spectators should be allowed to sit in your DeLorean. When your DeLorean is on display and must be viewed at a restricted distance spectators will have respect, excitement, and fascination for the rare opportunity to see a DeLorean in person. The added benefit of not having to worry about wear and tear to your interior and exterior will make your show experience much more pleasurable. Professional or computer generated signs with basic facts about the car will answer many of the spectators questions and give credibility to your display.

Whenever we display any of our DeLorean's we surround the car with crowd control ropes and signs, this not only keeps prying hands and bodies away from the car, the ropes also enhance the total presentation.

  I have had my car in a couple of shows here in my town, and nobody has been

  immediately place huge handprints all over it as they walk by, but I have no
  problem letting people sit in it if they ask.  I would first suggest having
  a couple of more obvious signs placed conspicuously on the seat or the door

Subject: Finally got #2196 running!

Well, I worked on fuel tank contamination last two weeks, cleaned 
tank and replaced everything in it. Also flushed lines, now it runs 
but has 2 problems. When you start it it idles smooth, but once you 
touch the gas pedal it will not return to normal idle, it surges with 
puffs of black smoke on every surge cycle. I checked the idle switch 
and it seems to be ok.
The other problem I have is when I drive around the block a couple
of times (2 footed because of idle surging) the 3rd time around the
vehicle will die and not restart for about 10 minutes. It will just
crank. It has been doing this regularly, next time it happens I'll
try to see if I'm loosing spark. (It usually will restart by the time 
I start poking around).
I've been looking at some of the older posts and have seen reference
to Delorean Motor Centers' instructions for cleaning the fuel 
injection components, but have not been able to find the instructions 
themselves. If anybody has this, please E-mail them to me. 
I'm a domestic driveability tech, this bosch set up is STRANGE!

If your battery or alternator is bad, chances are that when you release the
throttle you loose power to the ECU, causing your car to stall...
I'd replace the battery first to see if it still has the same trouble.
As for replacement batteries: check the archives, this has come up SOOOO many
times allready...

I've had even worse happen to my car while on display at Warner Brothes Movie
World in Germany; I had the doors CLOSED and I had armed my alarm, thinking it
would lock the doors. However on rare occasions my righthand side door doesn't
latch properly so the lock won't come on on that side. Because of my LockZilla
the other door doesn't lock either (this is supposed to be this way), but the
alarm does arm itself.
I was checking out the other DeLoreans that were there (have a look at
<http://home.planet.nl/~perotti/dcn/engels/d_evenement20010623.html> or go to 
<http://www.delorean.nl> and click "News" on the right menu in the English
version; it's the topmost article) when I heard my alarm going off.
It turned out a couple of people had opened my doors to help themselves inside!!!

With someone else's car they were allowed to sit inside, but were specifically
told NOT to touch anything. You can't imagine how many times I heard his horns
sound or saw the hazardlights or headlights come on...

I have to be honest: we were inside a movie-themepark, so I guess it could have
looked like part of the park, but even then I wouldn't think of climbing in
unless it was obviously allowed...

I found a great gadget for keeping people off of your seat at
<http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/cat_saver.htm>

On a more serious note I think I'm going to put two pieces of red/white plastic
link chain in my car to put between the strikerpins when my car is on display.
Roping off an area around the car is a bit too much if you ask me, but guarding
your property agains harm can't be held against you...

Enjoy your car, that's most important!

I have a similar problem, except that mine was working fine until I

Also, one of my window switches died. I remember there was a Saab

I've seen them go for in the high two hundreds range.  The plates still exist 
to reprint it.  A person willing to bankroll the full cost of the reprint is 
what's lacking.  It would cost tens of thousands to print, for an item that 
would sell very slowly. Nobody would pay two hundred-plus dollars anymore for 
an item they could get new for $50.

Subject: Re: Car Shows

When at car shows where there is more than one DeLorean present, I usually
keep my doors closed because everyone else likes to have their doors, trunk,
hood, etc. open.  Personally, I think this makes the car look rather
awkward.  Often times my DeLorean is the only one present with everything
closed.  I think it is nice to show at least one example of what the car
should normally look like.

At one large general interest car show, I left my car closed and locked up
next to a friend's D that had everything open with his kid watching both
cars.  When I came back, his kid told me that about 20 people tried the door
handles on my car trying to get it open!

As with most people, I am disappointed when I come back not to find several
fingerprints on the car.  The important thing to remember is to always keep
the car very clean or a finger rub across the grain will leave a slight
scratch from the surface dust.

It is always fun to watch the car from a distance like through a restuarant
window.  When people think the owner isn't around, they loose most of their
inhibitions and check the car over like it is forsale at a used car lot.

Wayne,

I am a publisher and I will bankroll it.  Getting permission is the hard
part.  I doubt the plates still exist, however, if you can find John Lamm
for me and help me get permission, I will do the rest.

I've seen them go for in the high two hundreds range.  The plates still
exist
to reprint it.  A person willing to bankroll the full cost of the reprint is
what's lacking.  It would cost tens of thousands to print, for an item that
would sell very slowly. Nobody would pay two hundred-plus dollars anymore
for
an item they could get new for $50.

Walter,

Consider the e-bay price a deal. Our data base indicates $225 for an A-1 condition hard cover original.

  Has anyone been keeping track of what an excellent copy of SSI is worth?
  There is currently one on eBay for $192.50.  I think this is the highest I
  have ever seen one go for.  Sheesh!  Is there any progress made on getting
  the publisher to make new copies?
