Subject: Re: storage

All fuel should be removed from the tank. It is alright to raise the 
car and block it up either by the frame or the suspension just use 
good quality jackstands (with rags so you don't scratch the epoxy). 
Change the anti-freeze if old or at least test it so the car won't 
freeze. Suck out the windshield washer fluid. For longer periods of 
storage more steps could be taken like fogging the cylinders, lowering 
the tire air pressures and covering the tires, dessicant in the 
passenger compartment etc. Keep any animals from getting in the 
garage, they can chew up wires, upholstery, carpeting, put acorns into 
the exhaust system and the like. Some camphor balls under the car can 
help but make sure ALL holes are sealed in the structure so tiny pests 
cannot get near the car. Remove everything loose and vacuum and clean 
the car inside and out. Taking the car out of storage can be as 
important as putting in in. Replace all fluids INCLUDING BRAKE FLUID 
AND CLUTCH, turn the motor over by hand, fully charge the battery and 
so on. To keep the battery alive during the storage of the car you 
should store it in a heated area on a piece of wood and hook it up to 
a trickle-charger 1 day a month. I have seen cars stored without any 
steps as it was only to be a little while. Months become years and 
then it is a real mess. Still the way you reactivate it can be at 
least as important as the way it was stored.

Hey all, 

     I'm the new guy in town and I wanted to say hey!  I will be 
getting my car shipped in about 2 or 3 weeks and wanted to know if 
there is an accurate DeLorean owner's directory.  I am trying to 
track down a specific one that me and my family owned 3-4 years ago 
and make it into a reliable everyday car.  I am keeping the one I am 
buying as a "weekend car" with all original miles and all that.  So 
if anyone could help me out, I appreciate it!

Subject: Roy Nesseth

I haven't kept up with the mailing list in quite some time, so I'm 
sorry if this has already been posted.  I've been talking to Roy 
Nesseth's daughter lately and thought I'd pass on to the group that 
Roy passed away last year.  If you don't know who Roy is, check out 
any of the DeLorean books or magazine/newspaper articles out there 
and you'll see many references to him throughout.  He was never 
represented favorably, which seems a shame since he seemed like just 
a good friend of John, but I just wanted to let those who keep up 
with John's past about Roy's passing.

There is a really cool custom painted DeLorean on eBay, also with custom 
wheels. Go here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=594791521&

to check it out. I think it is really good looking like that, but he should 
maybe do something to the interior and place headlight covers on it, too.

This car has also been listed on AutoTrader for a couple of months 
now. I belive the car is _at_dml_ a place called SMJ Motors, and the asking 
price was around $12K. Nice car, but I just didn't have the $ to buy 
it.

Subject: Re: Roy Nesseth

I'm acctually sad to hear that. Nesseth always seemed like he was a 
good friend of JZD, and his family. Another notable item is that if 
not for Nesseth, DMC may not have gotten off the ground. Nesseth was 
able to apply the nessisary pressure to the right people, and got the 
Dealer Network built for the DMC-12 among other things. While there 
are some unfavorable things written about him, I've never heard of 
either Nesseth, or JZD being given a chance to explain their side of 
the story. Especially since these stories have sometimes come from 
people who've had personal conflicts with both the men, and the 
company. Overall though, his passing is a loss. Nesseth worked behind 
the scenes _at_dml_ DMC, and may have been able to provide an interesting 
insight on the workings of the company. Of course the most notable 
thing of all was even after the colapse of DMC, a few articles still 
note that Nesseth stuck around. It's too bad the same could not have 
been said for JZD's wife, or his high class "friends" (i.e. Maur 
Dubin), but i won't go into that here.

I tried searching for Nesseth both online, and thru the public 
telephone records _at_dml_ the library. So now I know why I couldn't find 
him. If nothing else, he was someone involved within the DMC project 
who never got full credit for helping start/keep the company 
together...

If anyone is interested, a while back I uploaded what I believed to 
be the only photo I could find of Roy Nesseth from the newspaper 
archives at the library. I don't want to bother his daughter or 
anything like that, but could it be possibe to get a confirmation on 
the photo?

Subject: performance air intake

I have designed a performance part for my Delorean that is a direct bolt on replacement to the restrictive upper part of the black plastic air box(between air filter and engine). It will allow the use of a K and N panel air filter, be made of stainless, and have a clear polycarbonate top so that you can see the fuel injection trap door working and the condition of the air filter. This air box can however use a stock air filter, doesn't require any other modifications, and will only take approximately 5 minutes to install (You can also change back in 5 minutes for originality sake). It will allow vastly better air flow and show improved gas mileage and breathing through out the RPM range. I am also doing this in a tasteful manner so that it is not an eye sore and simply looks like it should be there. If anyone is interested in such a thing please contact me so that I can send you pictures when it is complete.

Casey

P.S. I am also designing scoops for the rear like on the turbo prototype car that I can make out on fiberglass, kevlar, or carbon fibre.

One more note: If you put fuel stabilizer in the tank (with low or no 
fuel) make sure you run the engine a few minutes to get the 
stabilizer into the Furl plumbing. Just by empting the tank OR 
putting stabilizer into the tank without running the car won't 
protect the inner fuel system. Any fuel left in the pipes without the 
Stabilizer will turn to varnish. If the tank is emptied it is still 
recommended to add fuel stabilizer to the tank, run the engine then 
empty it. The stabilizer contains an oil that will protect the fuel 
system from developing any rust in it.

Also when using Fogging spray (recommended if storing for a long 
period of time) make sure you use FOGGING spray. You can get it at 
your local Pep Boys, it's in a black can with gold lettering and it's 
under the name I believe "Golden Hawk". Fogging spray is very heavy 
and when sprayed into the cylinder (through the spark plug holes) 
will produce a heavy fog of Oil so that it coats the entire cylinder.
