That's is a great idea!  Maybe Bob Zilla can make a LockZilla that looks exactly like the original door lock module.. This way Concours cars can have the security of knowing they wont be locked in their car or burn out their solenoids while still having the correct "looking" part for the judging.

Seriously,  Based on your sarcasm I suspect you have not been to a concours event?  People do take it seriously, which is one of the reasons I am so against the whole thing!

<SNIP>
And one more question, will the competition be skewed by performance 
enhancing substances like octane boosters and slick 50? Is anyone going to 
test for these contraband items?
After all, this is not just a hobby, it's a VERY SERIOUS COMPETITION!

First let me say thank you to all the past judges in this class. Your job is 
a long one with little or no recognition. The idea that judges are bias is to 
put it mildly BULL. I saw at the Cleveland show how hard this job really is.

Subject: Poor brakes solved at last.........

Finally after weeks and weeks of trying to improve what I thought were poor
brakes I have found the problem.

I did have a leaky / faulty master cylinder, I did need new discs and pads,
and after changing all of this I still wasn't happy.
So today I spent a good few hours re-bleeding the system and checking for
vacuum leaks, there were no vacuum leaks, however I did find that in my
restoration when putting the body back on the frame I had caught and
squashed the vacuum hose to the servo, freeing that made all the difference.

What a Muppet!!!!

Cheers

Marty,

    If you need to make a comment to me personally, do it privately like a 
gentleman. In addition, I have many cars, maybe I had more than one 
DeLorean...it's really none of your business. If I felt comfortable enough 
talking with you, I would have shared that.
    Additionally, I made a suggestion about the judging, and conveyed 
original DeLorean owners sentiments, people that purchased the car new, and 
kept the car that way. THEY (no names please) really question what the judges 
know and how they are accurately trained. THEY (not I) are dissatisfied with 
the judges knowledge and are laughing their asses off (me too) at these 
emails, especially the one from kNut. We must have hit a sore spot with 
someone...as the suggestion was interpreted by some of you all as 
criticism...to bad.  Have the judges won a concourse? Do they sit in the left 
or right seat of the DeLorean?
    I have never entered a concourse nor do I plan to do so in the 
foreseeable future. If I plan to take my DeLorean(S) to a concourse d' 
elegance it will be at Pebble Beach.

Good day sir,
Michael

Subject: Re: Digest Number 956

We've entered in the Concourse div. at Memphis, We are going to have to ride 3 in a Dodge Ram from MI to Memphis, to pull this car, as no
other vehicle we have will pull the trailer, is there
a place I could just order a trophy, and pretend it
came from judging a picture? Just joking, as my
husband will probably really enjoy talking to all the
other owners, and learn if he should have really
entered into this division. Heard from some sources
that there were cars with almost 0 miles in it, so we
should move down in division, if we want a trophy.
Don't really care about a trophy, just trying to keep
him happy and have some fun.

Barb

So much for ZMAX!

Looks like if this stuff is in your car right now, you need an oil 
change, and quick!

For those of you considering the Northstar engine for the D. The is a 
guy on the oldsmobile page who is sell two brand new unfired engines. 
 They are on ebay according to his post.  

These are 4.6 liter aluminum v-8s that pull at least 300 HP.
