Subject: i'm heading back to the future...

hi,
  my name is jordan.  i am 17 years old and live in california.  first of all, i just 
want to say i ENVY ALL OF YOU! you people have DeLoreans! I love 
deloreans! they're the coolest cars ever! screw all the others! its all about 
deloreans! lol....ok...i'm done
  NOT!...lol. second, i have a 1960 apache 10 chevy. i am thinking about 
making it my 'project' car, yet now that i think about it, i'd rather have a 
delorean.  i'd restore it and make it nice.  yet i'd also make it be able to appeal 
to all types of people....i know you people will probably want to kill me for 
saying this but i'd put some crazy things on my delorean.  neon nights, lowerd, 
new rims, 2 sub-woofers....and a few other crazy mods! maybe even some 
NOS! i'd probably have to put some of that in there. lol.  my '60 truck has a v8 
in it....if i got a delorean, it'd have to be able to compete against my truck...lol!
  i wouldn't ever 'rice' it though.  i'd rather see a delorean smashed into small 
tiny pieces before i'd rice it. lol...but that could just be me.  ok... thx for 
listening...!!!

Subject: RE: Re: Carpet/XXXL shirts...

I myself wear a 3xl in some fits.  Mostly for the shoulder and chest area,
but still drive my "D" just fine.  I find that many lower quality shirts and
such are sized a bit small, too tight for me.  Anyone who has met me in
person refer to me as a linebacker.

Subject: Re: Has this ever happened to you, to anyone?

I had a similar occurance to this one.

After I had purchased #17006, I was going for my first Pennsylvania
inspection.  When I parked, a car pulled up and stopped in front of me.  The
driver got out and introduced himself as Dr. Ron Klimes of the DeLorean
Mid-Atlantic Club.  He saw me go by and followed me.  Luckily I wasn't going
far.

> This doesn't really count, but I was followed home one afternoon by a guy
in a Chevy Tahoe. When I finally got out of my car he explained he had
followed me all the way across town because he wanted to see who else drove
a DeLorean in town. It turns out he has an '83 with "dual color" interior,
and lives in my neighborhood... no more than a half mile away from me. This
is in my parents home town of Sanford, NC... it has a population of about
20,000 people... so I thought it was pretty cool there was another owner in
such a small town. Darren Decker has a pretty similar story with how he met
Bill Lane, a fellow DeLorean owner in Winston-Salem, NC. It's situations and
stories like this that makes it fun to own one of these little cars :-).

Subject: Questions re steering linkage and front suspension.

Seems like every time I'm convinced this car is going to be perfect I 
get to learn something new.
This week..
When I take off from a stop and go around a corner I seem to 
hear/feel a small clunk in the front tires/wheels.. almost like I ran 
over something.  This only happens when I go slightly faster than 
normal.  If I crawl around a corner I don't seem to get the problem.  
It seems to happen regardless of which way I'm turning and it seems 
to require that I turn the car fairly rapidly and turn about 90 
degrees.  Any ideas?

Subject: Update of the web page

Over the next few weeks we will be updating the web page frequently.

If you haven't heard we have a special guest for you at the show.

Claudia Wells ( Jennifer Parker in the movie BTTF 1) will be joining us.  
>From my conversations with Claudia she will be a great asset to the show.  She 
has been very outgoing and friendly in our conversations and is looking forward 
to seeing the DeLoreans and owners.

We have added a section on Claudia Wells and a cool video was provided by a 
Dragon Run enthusiast and with his permission have it for you in its entirety.

You can see the dragon

just click on the link.

We finally and I do mean finally 
received a deal with a company to give us Visa.  Its been a long time and 
anyone that is receiving the magazine or has been to one of the shows  will get 
the updated newsletter that will go into more detail. 

I cannot stand to overpay for services or agree to terms that do not serve us 
well and finally I got what I wanted so we now have credit card services.  

It is being set up now and as soon as its in place we will begin the 
registration.  The prices have been finalized.

We will be mailing flyers to the vendors to hand out as well so its getting 
close to registration time.

My thanks to Gary and Josh.
The show is now beyond one person doing it all and these two have been great 
in helping me out when I need it,

Just wanted to say thanks Guys.

The raffle car is coming along.  It is being refurbished so that the winner 
can just drive it away.  This includes a new fuel system, carpets, painted 
facias, new tires, new front brakes, new struts, new weatherstrips,  and a lot 
more.  It will be driven this spring to events and to the show.  It can be viewed 
anytime and in the near future we will be putting pictures on the web page.  
You can buy your tickets when you register.  Winner does not need to be 
present to win.  Its a cool car.
Yes the car is for real ( I keep getting e-mail with people still not 
convinced we will be giving away a DeLorean or that it exists)  Again it was 
displayed for some of the Atlantic DeLorean members.

So check out the web page and get ready to register.  This will be another 
record in attendance.  So I challenge everyone who went last year to find 
someone that doesn't know about the show and bring them along.

Ken

Subject: Delorean interior light swivel type

hello all,
 
The weather was so bad this 4 day weekend I couldnt take the car out at all.  I did remove the front interior light that never worked right and took it apart and cleaned all the contacts with brasso, came out real nice.
 
I found that on the clear plastic part of the switch is a circular brass ring that closes the connections.  The brass is mounted via an appendage of the clear plastic and a smaller metal ring, heated and mashed together to hold it in place.  REAL CHEAP.  This plastic bends when the bulb heats unter tension of the spring and pushes downward.  I was able to heat and bend it back into position  works good now.  Ill post a few pictures tonite.

Subject: Torsion bar adjustment issues

Hello all;
 
   Ill be posting pictures on thsi but I thought id give a heads up.  when removing the t panel it was evident that the middle plate had risen up in the middle.  Looks like it was riveted down but it didnt hold.  You can see that the torsion bars are not even when looking from the back.  I saw the article about removing the bars and fixing the problem.
 
you will see that it looks pretty bad.  also , the torsion bars were too loose that the air shocks too tight, this bent the outer posts that the air shocks connect to.
 
not a happy day for my doors.

ANNOUNCING 2004 DELOREAN CALENDAR!
(One size fits All!)
 
Thanks to everyone for submitting quality photos for this awesome
collection of DeLoreans.  This year's calendar includes custom
DeLoreans, painted DeLoreans, DeLoreans in unique and interesting poses
and beautiful background sceneries.  There's even a bonus cover photo
that features a group shot of Ds with the WTC Twin Towers in the
skyline. 
Simply beautiful!

The 12-month calendar is assembled like a booklet or magazine (no spiral
binding), 11 X 17 (open) glossy full-color photos with bleed to edge of
page (no borders), for 8 1/2 X 11 (closed) frameable prints.

Subject: Re: Gullwing article in Modified Magazine

The Delorean is featured on the first page of an article entitled Going Vertical
in the December issue of Modified Mag.  The article is a summarized history
of gullwing and scissor door cars, including both production and concept cars.
Both the content and the photos of the cars in the article were very well done.

The Delorean used in this article had a front Euro plate, MJI 1981.
Anyone know the owner of this car is/was, during the photo shoot.

The article is a must read for fans of all gullwing cars.

Later,
Rich W.

Subject: Re: Questions re steering linkage and front suspension.

Two things come to mind: 1) Something is loose in the front end and a
thorough inspection is required. Get the car up on some jackstands and check
for any loose components in the front end. If you don't feel confident
enough to perform this task take the car immediately to a reputable service
center and have a front end alignment/inspection performed. This will show
where the problem lies.
2) Open the trunk and check the jack/tool kit in the tool compartment, it
could be your tool kit sliding back and forth in the front compartment.

When I bought  #17145 every time I turned from a stop and go around a corner
I heared the same "clunk" you mention.

Later, I changed for newer tires and I realised the former owner had put one
step higher tire (P205-60-14) in front instead of the recommended
P195-60-14. I bought Eagle GT tires of the rigt size for both front and rear
tires and I never hear that "clunk" again since that time (April 1998...)

Hoe your car will somday be perfect!

Subject: damaged fascia wanted

Hi Guys,
I just moved into an apartment in Petoskey, MI and my DeLorean is hundreds of miles away.  I thought it would be cool to get a rear fascia and hang it on my wall so I can atleast pretend my car is here.  
drop me an email if you have a rear fascia that is wrecked.  The cheaper the better.  I'm out of a job until the ski areas open.

Thanks
