that's some cool info about those doors.
someone around the corner is selling a pristine one... hmmmm
maybe i'll check her out
but, i hear that deloreans are pretty lame , when it comes to performance...
it makes actually sense with all that weight.

Let's see the pics!
i can live perfectly without proof to HeirKranz claims. she is his girlfriend for a reason. and the girl made it in a calender, and that's pretty cool.
but 500mpl i am sure your past girlfriends and your wife, they also started small in their modeling careers,
don't you agree?

but if you all feel like it, you can all share some of your photographs

Ceedee,
Does he really have a girlfriend or is she one of the birds who takes a picture of the leach who orders some wings and a beer hoping that he may tip her a bit more if she takes the pose?
Sounds like the girls who are "working their way thru college" at the local strip club.
Anyway, let's keep the topics on cars!

DeLoreans are really not that heavy, and have modest performance. The issues that you have to expect are the fuel contamination issues due to plastic bladder tanks. Poor visibility is another along with marginal ventilation. They can be fun cars for the weekend type. They are really short on comfort for any extended driving, and thats from driving one for 26 years. even though mine only has 27K on the clock.

Too bad DMC was just a coke front. When the British government finally stopped bailing them out there was something like 12 million dollars (1983 dollars) unaccounted for. Could've bought some nice engines. Either way, I'd still give my left arm for one.

i hear there is a company here in florida , i think even called DMC, if i am not mistaken. and there are so many parts for these cars still that one can have a totally new zero mile delorean build.

maybe one could even drop a more up do date engine into that car. and give it more oomph.
i definetely would love to have one.

don't start a pi$$ing contest I'll win with the I'll show you mine if you show me yours!!!

Sounds like you might be one of those guys that frequents my girlfriend's resaurant that is trying to keep away from his wife and always mad that I go home with the girl that you can get only the poser pics with--Did i tell you the reason my Girlfriend could not enter her pics in the calendar this year is that she was promoted to an AGM at the Palm Harbor and New Port Richey locations???? --too bad Ker doesn't pay his Gmanagers very well or she would stick around longer----BTW the cover of last years Calendar is the one airbrushed, not my girl friend's she had a gap that you could drive a train through-FYI

look at the month of Jan in the 2006 calandar she is the only Danielle---

as for the deloreans---I would own one if I could put a massive turbo's on those volvo engines!!!

This performance upgrade looks both stylish and functional.



Oooops, I just learned that the fuel source requires either plutonium or a 3 million volt bolt of lightning to recharge. I'm a little short on both.....
