Subject: RE: vendors

>>I do not consider Marty, Darryl or any other owner not solely in the parts business to be a "vendor".<< 

Excuse me?  I have been selling new and used DeLorean parts worldwide for over 16 years, even before there was a "DMC Houston".  But I live in a community of 1500, many miles from the next DeLorean, and trying to run a full-time exclusively DeLorean repair shop is not very feasible.  I wish it was, but frankly I'd rather be here, doing mail order, than living in LA, Houston, or even Seattle.  I manufacture and sell parts no one else has, like door opener kits, waterpump pulleys, braided stainless speedo cables, and engine cover support slides.  How do you figure that makes me not a vendor?  How many other "vendors" spent their most recent Sunday installing their products, in this case window motors and a new window, FOR FREE???  Where do you get off making a statement like that?
>>Darryl's door system is a good design....  My system costs less because it has a lower parts count (no actuator mounting brackets for example)<<

You know, its comments like that from someone who next admits "Although I have never seen one..."  that just frost my cookies.  Since these comments were unsigned I don't know who made them, but it appears to be one more case of someone making negative comments about a product they have never even seen, much less purchased.  Not to be too picky, but my remote door system does NOT use actuator mounting brackets.  If you had purchased one you would know that the actuators require only the drilling of two small holes, which are covered by the upper door panel.  Its that simplicity of design and function which has made it unique for over 10 years now.  That, and the fact that no one else sells such a kit, last I heard.

But then I'm not really a vendor, so what do I know.

Subject: Re: "Resurrected Barn Relic"

I am very interested in this car because I'm "resurrecting" what was 
considered a hopeless DMC (almost went into the crusher).

Please e-mail or post more headlight treatment details & rim info 
(done by a tire shop?), or contact info for the red car's owner.  I 
would be very grateful, and hopefully we can help each other out by 
comparing notes!

I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to find headlamps to swap out.  
Currently, the closest fit I've found are the 1990 Chevy Silverado 
headlamps.  I wanted to go with 90's Honda Accord aftermarkets that 
had "Angel Eyes" (like the new BMW's)... the front of the lamp body 
is flat, but the projectors are angled which would have made my 
DMC "cross-eyed" :(

Subject: DeLorean in Savannah?

I had been on the list for a few weeks rekindling my DeLorean dream when what do I see in Savannah,  a 'D'.  I want to say thank you to whoever was driving when I drove up next to him all googly eyed.  You were very professional and didn't just ignore me.  Thank you for that.  To see a DeLorean up close in the flesh just reinforced the dream.  You are probably in Memphis right now.  Are you local in Sav or just passing through.  I saw you as you were crossing Abercorn (204) on King George Blvd. from the Piggly Wiggly side (just in case there was more than one crazy  nut saying hello, which I'm sure there was).  Thanx again, as it was good to see a kind and humble driver giving you guys a good reputation as DeLorean drivers.  You may email me directly at mike(at)

-Mike A.

I unfortunately have bent the upper and lower control arms on the 
front right side of my D.  If anyone knows of anyone who might have 
a set of these that they are willing to part with I would be 
interesting in talking to them about selling them.

Please email me privately if you have any information.  Thank you 
for your time

Subject: Re: Shocks .

I recieved 2 Dayton 1L708 1 and 3/4 inch steel shaft collars from Grainger 
today. They fit the rear Monroe / Napa lower shock bodies perfectly....I'll 
be using them to install a pair of Sensa Track units this weekend. The 
options made available for rear shocks with these collars available in so 
many different sizes should be all you need to install Koni's KYB's etc....

<< 've done some more research.  The big problem with rear shocks on the 
Delorean is the need for a collar to go around the lower shock body to 
support the lower coil spring seat. Well if you look in the current Grainger 
catalog on page 365 , you'll see two piece steel and stainless steel clamp 
style shaft collars. The Monroe Napa unit has a 1 and 3/4 inch lower shock 
body outside diameter. The clamp you can get from Grainger would be the 2 
piece  IL708 in steel or the 2 piece IL727 in stainless.  >>

Subject: Key Copies

Has anyone found a place that makes delorean key copies? 
I tried HomeDepot and Ace Hardware and both places don't have the 
right machine to make a delorean key.  I know PJGrady sells delorean 
key blanks, but they wont do me any good if i cant get them etched.

Subject: DMC for sale: possibly the most beautiful Black DMC I've seen!

Normally I don't "pimp" cars, but if I had the extra cash I'd buy 
this DMC.  It is just plain beautiful (in my humble opinion).

(my fav photo, with other exotics next to it like any good supercar 

Please, someone local buy this DMC so I can come over & salivate over 
it!  Heheee :)

I'm uploading a lot of pictures to the website
via a dialup connection in my room at the Heartbreak Hotel.  Wish me

When I get back to Kirkland Washington (in about a week) I will be
uploading even more, and will be able to optimize them better and
annotate them.

Meanwhile, I'm having too much fun!!!!!
