Subject: RE: Conversion to BTTF car?

I'm a D purist and BTTF fan, (and a young 52 year old!)   I have several
"stock" cars and in the process of making my own full time, time machine.  I
won't be drilling any holes in the car and all changes will be reversible.
It has been done several times in the USA.
 The costs could be as much or as little as you want. Depending how much
work you put in yourself.
I am currently having all the stainless steel trim bits made. My local
university made all the electronics in exchange for borrowing and displaying
my car at their Science fair.
I think the only bit you can buy "off the shelf" is the "out of time" number
plate from Universal studios, and I don't think it was ever actually fitted
on one of the cars

My advice would be to buy your car first before worrying too much about the
BTTF conversion.

Hello All

I don't post here much as I don't have my own D yet, however I might be
getting one soon (which I am very excited about), so I figured now would be
a
great time to start posting. I was just wondering (and some of you D purists
*might* find this blasphemous) if anyone knew of a place that could turn
your
D into a replica of the BTTF D? Does anyone know of any websites, costs,
phone numbers, etc. for places that do such things? Any help would be much
appreciated!

Subject: Re: RE.inertia switch

After resetting the inertia switch (if it is good) the car should 
start right up. If it won't then you have a problem in your fuel 
system possibly the fuel accumulater as now you are experiencing the 
"hot start" problem. Some owners use the inertia switch as a "kill" 
switch to prevent the car from being stolen and don't have the problem 
of hard starting. If your switch is still on the Lambda counter move 
it so you don't kick it and make sure it has a white spot on it or it 
WILL let you down.

Subject: RE: youngest delorean owner and local d owner

Well James, I can't beat you for the youngest DeLorean owner/driver, but
will try for the oldest.  Lets see, I am 80 years 8 months.  I bought my D 5
years ago with 3K miles on it and now it has 8K (Oct 81 build date) and
drive it almost daily.  I like to brag I can still do a 9 minute mile
(running) and do a 180 in a car (NOT the D tho).  A couple years ago, I was
told of one person older than me who is an owner, but my informant said he
did not drive his car any more.   We have reservations at the "Heart Break
Hotel" in Memphis in June, but will NOT be in the D, sorry to say.  Too far
from Walla Walla, WA!!!

Hi James,

You're right... many might find that blasphemous! I, however, do not. I myself have been looking for such a conversion since I stumbled across a website a few years back. Someone *had* indeed built a kit that consisted of a new rear louvre and a panel that sat behind the driver with the fluxy bits. I've never again found the site! Since it was all "bolt on" the car was not harmed or altered in anyway... damn I'd like to find that site! I even remember the pricing! Around $1400! 
Due to copyright etc I doubt it'll ever surface again....

Hello list

I beleave at the time of my purchase, I would have been the youngest DeLorean 
owner.  I turned 18 on June 11, 1998, and purchased my D on July 5, 1998.  I 
am the only person on the title.

Darn, I thought maybe I held the title. I am 21. vin 16683, its all cold

saying he wanted to set it on fire and collect the insurance... he may have 
just said all that cause he knew I wanted it intact, but anyway I am glad I

Subject: Window Motor

I have finally got around to looking into why my drivers side window does not go up and down, however I can hear the motor turning.

After removing the whole mechanism the 'Worm drive' that turns to move the window, is Knackered. i.e. down around the motor gears it is actually broken with two to three inches missing. The motor  however is in fine running order.

Does any one out the have an old one with a burnt out motor they may be looking rid of that I could  acquire? Or can I just purchase the 'Worm Drive' and gears somewhere????

Cheers

I don't think I'd like that, I'd probably detect who was most likely to
allow my drivel to get through and only post during those times.  My
reject numbers would probably plummet, I'd lose the only edge I have.
I'm far from the youngest, and I'm not the oldest (Murray is always in
my face taking that away).  I have only my reject record for bragging
rights, don't take that away from me.

Happy New Year All!
I've been a prop builder in theatre and film for years and have always wanted my very own time machine.  Well, this past July, my dream came true and I purchased Vin#10694!
After gathering images and models, I've begun construction, and I must say it has been an incredible experience so far!
If anyone desires a particular part (ie: time circuits, overhead switch console, time circuit drum switch, etc.),  let's talk.  I might consider making a few duplicate parts as I go along.

Living the dream!

Subject: ADMIN: Monthly Reminder about the Rules of the List.

Time for the Moderator's monthly spam....
------------------------------------------------------
THIS POST CONTAINS IMPORTANT SUBSCRIPTION, UNSUBSCRIPTION, AND EXPECTATIONS
OF THE DELOREAN MAILING LIST.  YOU SHOULD REVIEW IT, PRINT IT OUT, AND KEEP
IT IN A SAFE PLACE SO THAT YOU CAN REFER TO IT IN THE FUTURE.  THIS FILE IS
SENT TO EACH MEMBER ON THE FIRST OF EACH MONTH AS A REMINDER OF ITS
EXISTENCE AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN.

Updated December 9, 2001

Welcome fellow DeLorean enthusiast:  This is the DeLorean mailing list.
Please take a moment to review this message.  It includes some rules of
conduct, information about web sites for the list, as well as subscription
and unsubscription information.

1.0 CHARTER - This list exists for the enthusiasts of the DeLorean cars
produced during the 1981-83 model years. We all have a bit to learn from
each other, and welcome ALL DeLorean owners as members of the group.  This
list also exists for the benefit of those for whom ownership is a future
event and would like to get a handle on what it takes to live with, or be
married to, these wonderful cars. This list exists independently of the
current business known as the DeLorean Motor Company, or any other groups,
email lists, or web sites dealing with DeLorean automobiles other than
www.dmcnews.com.

2.0 RESTRICTIONS - This is an unrestricted subscription list. Anyone may
join at any time without approval. All postings are subject to approval by
the active member of the moderating team. Please note that, in order to
reduce unsolicited spam, only authorized subscribers can post messages;
anonymous postings don't get past the list processor.  Topics should deal
with anything concerning owning, fixing, driving, restoring, detailing, or
anything else tangential with what it takes to live with these unique and
affordable automobiles. Also welcome are discussion of the DeLorean Motor
Company (the original manufacturer) and John Z. DeLorean himself.  Personal
impressions, links to sites, links to other information or personal
experiences are especially welcome. Personal, side observations of off-topic
areas should be minimized, but right now, are not absolutely forbidden.
Please be respectful of each other's mailboxes. Flames, intolerance, gross
characterizations, or any racial, ethnic, or orientation slurs are
forbidden.  The moderator will delete obscenities and any intolerant
comments.  The decision of the moderator as to what is obscene, intolerant,
or not in keeping with 'spirit' of the list is final.  This is, and has
been, and will continue to be, a "G" rated list.

3.0 ITEMS FOR SALE/SWAP - Items for sale, including cars, for PERSONAL
purposes are just fine; commercial ventures should use good judgment and
restraint (say, no more than once every couple weeks, ok?) and not tie up
the list with advertisements. It has been noted that many list members have
spare parts or knowledge that they are willing to swap or sell to other
members at reasonable cost to help each other out.  More detailed vendor
rules at http://www.dmcnews.com/Admin/vendor_rules.html. We tend to frown on
postings seeking a "cheap" DeLorean, as the average list-member tends to
find this offensive. Be sure to include your email ID in the form of
"joe(AT)isp.com" because Yahoo Groups strips the email ID out of addresses
in the archives.

4.0 NETIQUETTE - Please note that you should use caution when quoting
personal email in your reply, unless you have the acquiescence of all
parties to the communications. Please respect the rights of your fellow
list-members and help maintain some modicum of privacy for private email as
well as list decorum. The list is setup to strip ALL attachments, to prevent
virus forwarding, dirty pictures, email pyramid schemes and the like from
cluttering up the list. File size is restricted so as to inhibit quoting
entire digests. If you have images or other data that you would like the
members to see, please post the info the YahooGroups.com site, and provide a
URL to the users versus attaching that file to a message.  When replying to
a message, let's get back into the (seemingly) long-lost netizen habit of
snipping unneeded or non-germane text from the body of the reply.
Especially, please be painfully aware of replying to the list if you are in
DIGEST mode, since a one or two-line retort in the middle of a digest, if
you are quoting the whole digest, is aggravating to your fellow users.  We
are a pretty tolerant bunch, but that tolerance has been built up by a long
tradition of respectful and open dialogue by the members of the group here.

5.0 OTHER SHARED FILES - As a member, there is a shared file area you can
upload images to on the yahoo server site; compressed JPEG is the best to
conserve disk space on the servers.  We do reserve the right to clean out
the file area from time to time to conserve disk space; we only have 20megs
available. We would caution against uploading any scans of copyrighted
material to either of these sites. This is not the place to debate whether
or not the information is for personal use, for now, let's accept the fact
that copyright owners have the right to tell us what to do with their
intellectual property.  The fact is, in this litigious society, we don't
have the resources to fight swarms of lawyers descending on us because a
site we administer has copyrighted material on it.  We need the bucks to
keep our cars running...:)

6.0 HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF - To unsubscribe from this list, go to the
Yahoo Groups web site, at www.yahoogroups.com/groups/dmcnews/, and select
the
User Center link from the menu bar on the left. Or, alternatively, you can
send a message to: dmcnews-unsubscribe_at_dml_yahoogroups.com and the system will
ask you to reply to a confirmation message.

7.0 HOW DO I CHANGE MY SUBSCRIPTION - I don't like getting 50 emails a day.
Can you help? Yes - Go into the members area off of the top page of the
Yahoo Groups website for the group, select your name, and change your
subscription type to something other than individual emails.

8.0 LIST OWNER AND CONTACT INFORMATION - Any suggestions for improvements
greatly appreciated, either on or off-list. Questions or comments to the
moderator should be sent to moderator(AT)dmcnews.com. All the moderators

Dear Andy,
     When I said that on all the 5 speeds that I have seen, I was 
referring to Delorean cars only. Hope this clears up any confusion.

Dear Wayne,
     Thank you for putting in the last part, that after you lift, you 
pull left some more and then put it into reverse. I think that I had 
left that out.

Subject: Releasing Luggage Compartment Lid

Hi there,

Is there anyone that knows how to open the lid for luggage compartment, if the cable comes disconnected while closed? I asked the DOA and they gave me instructions to go in through the brake fluid reservoir, but I was wondering if there is an easier way to pop the lid.

Aaron P.

Hey again,
Well thanks to everyone who wrote back thus far, all advice shall be taken 
into careful consideration. I too remember that same kit site, it was some 
canadian company who also had a D to sell!! I'd love to find it again, I 
think it was found when i searched "Delorean's for sale". Anywhoo, to the 
gentleman building his own Time Machine, let me know how much you might want 
for duplicate parts and if you could tell me (teach me) how to do the same 
it'd be most welcome!!

James

Subject: Re: Battery hold-down strap

I don't like having to do this to you but if you can get your hands on 
it, it does show you how to do it. I am refering to Delorean World
 Vol 11 #2 the Tech Quest article by John Truscott. Even with the 
picture it is not easy. I had to have mine done by another member of 
our club who was able to do it from memory. it is not done in any 
"normal" manner and is certainly not intuitavly obvious. If any 
members have it it would be good to put in the vault as long as the 
D.O.A. and John Truscott don't mind. A better picture would be nice.

I got everyone beat, I was born July 13 of 1983, I got my first delorean
when I was fifteen, Although I did not technically own it at the time, I was

december of last year, and when the registration came due this past december
I got my second delorean officially put in my name.

if you think you may be this please post, i'm interested in who this may be.

in america you have to be 18 in order to technically own a car, or legally 
emancipated... so unless someone got one just recently i just may be it. 
i'm 18, born june 1st of 83 (I wanted a june 83 car... but i wasn't going to

let that effect my decision too much... i got a june 81 by coincidence) 

the title has to be in your name, not your father's car that you drive. 

just curious. 

and while we're at it... oldest? if you're comfortable sharing. 

also, anyone around the metro detroit area that would like to meet up some 
weekend after the weather gets a bit better. i hate michigan salt.

Subject: Proud young Delorean owner!

I had purchased my first DeLorean when I was 16 back in 1983. I had been 
working and saving up the money for two years to buy it. It had 18 miles on 
it and was on the showroom floor at an authorized DeLorean dealer called 
Spreen Toyota in Atlanta.
When the insurance bill came in I was devastated that I could not keep it for 
more than six months. I could afford the car, but not the insurance as a 16 
year old.
18 Years later I am enjoying a different DeLorean and the insurance is cheap!

BTW, I paid $18,995 for my D in 1983, and $19,000 for my current one. If I 
had only kept the original one in good shape, I could've made $5 profit in 
only 18 years! That's better than my Enron stock!

TTFN,
Daniel Deutsch
