Hi all,

I thought the stateside Delorean owners might be interested in a in a video
I've just cut from a car show in Knebworth, England.

Its all been shot on my new piece of kit called Polecam. This was only its
second day out so the moves are a bit rough around the edges. You get the
idea though.

In case you don't know, I'm a freelance TV cameraman, and polecam is my new
little toy!

David,

No, you have the cars confused,that WAS the 1 month from new car(the 
one with the balljoint that let go,that was the untitleable car(2000k 
car) This was the engine fire car with a Super clean title.(owner 
took the loss,no insurance claim)Why? I never asked.There was the red 
car (clean title) the parts only car(above),(untitleable)vin 570 the 
engine fire car and the other one,that was recieving the parts from 
the 2K car---16686 had a rebuilt title (after I put it thru MVD 
insp,and when I sold it)ENGINE Fire car always had a clean CT title 
even when sold.The 81 I sold (traded/sold for the engine fire car) 
was a super orignal that was never in any kind of accident,with a 
clean CT title(last I heard of it, it was shipped to Poland,the buyer 
was polish)Sorry if it sounds confusing,but I was 
buying/selling/trading cars like crazy,in those time periods (and 
still am today,but at a much slower pace) and it was not just 
Deloreans,it was all makes including newer 
Corvettes,Mercedes,Pontiacs,and a whole lot of others,at one point I 
had 30 plus cars of all makes.One of The Reasons for buying my 
garage,too many cars in my backyard,the town/neighbors complaining. 
It was Just the timing WAS perfect,between buying/selling/repairing 
Deloreans,in that moment in time for me.Hope that helps the confusion.

Re: Nostalgic DMC Video

It is common sense,if you just follow the video,they were prostesting
(to JZD)(see banners) the closing/shutdown of the plant and JUST 
wanted to get back to work!(so much so,that they even jumped the 
closed employee entrance gates! Coffee break not hardly,as SHOWN they 
WERE VERY VERY hard WORKERS AND PROUD TO be Making Deloreans,and just 
wished to continue,making a proud product called a Delorean! Please 
do not make fun of these workers,(coffee brake thing)they were just 
proud workers caught in the middle,that lost the most.The number one 
thing is You NEVER show prospective investors, your employees 
protesting or climbing over the company gates,so that rules that 
out.Basically a short video of the rise and fall of the company.

Hope that helps

Not quite so in Las Vegas. The cars were REALLY popular with a few
higher-ups who worked at some of the big casinos. In fact, out of the
8-9 DeLoreans that were offered as slot prizes, only two winners opted
to take the cars home as prizes versus the cash payout. Of the cars
that never won, they never made it back to the dealership. They
instead were snatched up by various gaming execs who wanted them. And
in a town like Vegas where you want as flashy a car as possible, the
DeLorean did, and still does turn more heads than lots of the other
exotics that have come and gone over the years.

While the reviews of various car magazines may have dissuaded a few
from buying the car, they still remained quite popular with legions of
would-be customers who didn't care about the reviews, but just
couldn't afford them outright, because financing them was so hard to
do (in another story by a guy who worked at the *gray-market*
dealership, GMAC and lots of others ceased extending credit to people
who wanted to buy DMC-12's).

The whole "Bad Reviews killed all DMC sales" isn't really a valid
argument when you look at it. Yeah, there are people out there who are
so concerned with status and what material items they owned, they let
the opinions of other affect their buying decisions. And they would
have dropped the DMC-12 as soon as they percieved it to be a car with
any sort of negative aspect that could reflect back upon them. But
that still didn't stop other people from still wanting to buy the car.
Many people whom you speak with today do have regrets about not buying
one as I've found over the years. And lots of people were consumers
who fit the profile that my parents did in 1981; They wanted to buy a
DMC-12, but couldn't afford the exorbant price the cars were initially
commanding when they first debuted. My mother had even went to a
DeLorean dealership to look at a brand-new one. But they planned to
either buy a good used one, or save up more money to buy a newer '84
or '85 model, hoping that they'd come down in price. But once the
company went under, they were so concerned about where they could have
gotten the car serviced, that they decided against buying one. Sales
didn't drop-off because interest in the car did. They dropped off
because they were so damn hard for the "average-joe" to acquire.
Plenty of customers were there: but helping them actually own their
own car was the one aspect that DMC overlooked...

WOW! 2K,  I remember there was one on Ebay appox. 2years ago or 
so,that was for 1,000,000 shares and that one WAS signed by JZD 
himself and sold for well under 500.00! If I remember right, I have a

Is there any difference between checking the system dry and filling it with coolant before pressure testing? I'd like to avoid filling until I'm reasonably sure the system is tight. Also - I've got a vacuum connection that's staring me in the face. The large hose coming from the charcoal canister, forward toward the resister pack, across the firewall to the passenger side and continuing on. Right near the heater control valve there is a tee in this line with nothing coming out of the bottom of the T. I didn't see any good reference on Hervey's site, and I don't for the life of me remember what tied in there. It annoys me greatly that half of the car's vacuum system doesn't make it onto the diagrams I've found. Nice that we have all the engine controls documented, but a leak is a leak - is there a better reference that shows ALL of the vacuum in the car?

Subject: Re: Coolant system pressure check and vacuum routing.

You really have to have coolant in the system to pressure test. This
way you can see the leaks. Some leaks may be so small as not to leak
coolant but will easily leak air. All it may take is tightening up
some hose clamps. As for the vacuum tee I think you mean the side of
the tee which is connected to a fitting on the front right side of the
intake manifold and is the vacuum source for the cannister and the
power brakes. Your coolant leak can also be where the tester connects
to the tank. Very common on a beat up tester.

Subject: RE: Timing

It's my understanding that 13 degrees is exactly where the timing should be 
set to run properly.

I do want to add that I felt only the Bosch Coils were a good fit for the 
DeLorean.  A friend here tried out the MSD Blaster Coil and his car broke 
down on him and would not start until we put the stock coil back on.  Tried 
it on my old car and it fired so we never did determine the anomaly but his 
car did not like the MSD Coil.  I've heard similar stories about the "Accel" 
brand coils.

I used Herveys Bosch "Super Coil" and I really liked that one.  I believe 
that's the one coil he sells where you need the upgraded resistor.  Looks 
nice too.

Subject: Re: Timing

Generally when a spec is given with a + or- it means if the timing is
within the spec when you check it you do not need to adjust it. So if
it is 15 degrees or 11 degrees just leave it alone. It can also mean
you can move it up to 2 degrees in either direction of 13. Sometimes
it is useful if you are experiencing overheating or pinging. In my
experience 13 is OK for the most part but if the gass in your area is
not good or you are at a high elevation you may have to go away from
13. Straying from 13 can cause a loss in performance and/or gas
mileage while also affecting emissions.

I bought mine from a guy in Olive Branch this past June (Nick at Cross Road

(painted red at the time) and a stainless one.  Don't know if it's the guy 
you're talking about though. Nick said he wasn't selling the stainless one 
because he was going to rebuild it one day.  He is more tied up in the car 
racing scene for the time being.

You have to fill the system to test it.  That is the only way you 
will be able to find where it is leaking.

Subject: A/C panel light bulbs

Hello all,
I'm trying to locate the part number for the small light bulbs that 
live behind the A/C control panel.  I'm a professional mechanic so I 
know that if I can get a number I can probably cross reference them.  
Hopefully I won't have to go to the Volkswagen dealer.  :( 
The PNWDC cross reference list has the numbers for a LED replacement 
bulb, but I can't find the original number anywhere.
Thanks in advance.
Matt
VIN# 2868
