  NEC Classic Car Show 2022
Posted by: Chris Williams - 29 Jun 2022, 20:32 - Forum: General Discussions on the DOC / Car / Company / JZD - Replies (6)

Hi All
It's that time of year that I'm on the cadge for volunteers for exhibiting cars at the indoor NEC classic cars how in November, There's already a post in the members section and in the last club mag for discount tickets. But as ever I really need cars and people who would be happy to supply a car (or parts of) for display. We are always fortunate to be swamped with visitors who love to admire our cars and it's actually a really good (if long) weekend.
Feel free to contact me off line via PM or email if you prefer not to respond publicly.
Thanks in advance

  DeLorean sold today at H&H Auctions, Imperial War Museum Duxford

#2457.  Went for £41k. (laughably estimated 25-30!)
Another one (#3170) goes under the hammer on Friday (24th June) at Goodwood.  
Will be interesting to see what the difference is, rather hopefully that one's estimated at £60k!!
Anyone here responsible for either of these?

Holy s**t.
£41k is just the 'hammer price'.  Buyer's premium and VAT on top.. final price to the buyer is what, exactly??!?  :-o

  Tracking Alignment
Posted by: Mich1958 - 21 Jun 2022, 21:19 - Forum: 5 - Suspension / Steering - Replies (4)

Hi Guys

 I'm nearing the end of my front end suspension and brake mods which have included a revamped steering rack as the old one had a heck of knock and bang on our pothole strewn british roads  Undecided   

So is there anyone in the notts derby area that does an alignment for the Delorean and more importantly has the specs.

Any recomendations would be appreciated

  Car for Sale (Black) with preferable End Sept completion date - DOC member car
Posted by: lordivanhoe - 13 Jun 2022, 12:50 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (4)

Dear All:

After much excitement last year when I managed to buy, import from the US, register and fettle VIN #2045 (Black Bess), and subsequently greatly enjoy ownership, I find I am sadly in a position of having to consider selling my DeLorean.  Much to my own regret, and particularly sadly for my younger daughter who has really taken to her!  :-(
This summer she has been on display at 3 local car shows (garnering much attention naturally!), and she is also booked in to the 'Kop Hill Climb' event near Princes Risborough this September on the 24th/25th, where I am planning to take my daughters on the Hill run (at much less than 88, though!).

Accordingly, I am open for expressions of interest from anyone who would like a DeLorean but doesn't mind a/ that it's painted (black) and b/ potentially having a completion date after the Kop Hill.  I would hate to disappoint my youngest in particular.  On the plus side, this means plenty of time for both parties to ensure any deal is fair and to get all the ducks in a row!

As with any DeLorean, there are many aspects of the car to consider, so I shan't go into them all in detail here, rather keep that for further discussion.
However, in brief, some of the more important bits;
Imported last year, registration finally completed (DVLA delays included!!) 2nd September 2021.  
Front and rear light mods done and first MOT successfully passed as part of registration process.  Now registered as 'historic' and tax and MoT exempt.
Serviced (oil, coolant, filters) when received.  Upgraded DGo alternator fitted.
Front suspension updated (lower ball joints, recall work, lower arms 'boxed', poly bushed).  Also got the extra lower arm support kit but not fitted this yet.
New fuel level sensor and angle drive/lower cable just fitted (and working).
LED bulb lights in all appropriate places, door and rear louvre gas struts replaced...
And so on.  
In short, she's a DeLorean in VGC, nearly everything works (including air con!), she's very usable and presents well.
Even the paint is in pretty good nick for 40 years old.
OH yes: Manual, and grooved bonnet with gas flap!

Happy to be contacted at ivan.mark.rogers@gmail.com for discussion. 
I can of course then send piccies.

 We are offering display pitches for clubs and individuals. We have space for up to 60 cars and will be opening invitations from all makes and models.

Hi Guys

After my first little trip out I noticed that there was no oil pressure the reading just disapeared, after a little messing with the sender unit which is leaking oil i got a pressure reading but this keeps happening so im going to replace it.

But I also noticed no oil warning light so I replaced the pressure switch still no light  Undecided so ive tested the circuit from the unit to the firewall plug and thats ok is there anyway I can test from the firewall plug to the dash short of removing the dash to see if the bulb is dead .

could I send a feed down it or is it a ground that is required to see if i have a dash light.

any help would be appreciated.

  DeLorean News Issue 91
Posted by: Chris Williams - 17 May 2022, 21:01 - Forum: Latest DOC News - No Replies

Huge apologies for the delay in getting this magazine out in part due to lack of content but more down to workload and family issues that Matt has. Anyway this is being sent in the morning so should be with everyone by the end of the week. We are aiming to have another magazine out in June but after that I think we are out of content. Please forward any interesting articles you may have to me.

  Croydon (Cambs) Classic Car Show. 11th Sept 2022
Posted by: Chris Williams - 09 May 2022, 17:24 - Forum: South East - No Replies

Croydon Cambs Classic Vehicle Show -
Returns for 2022 - Sunday 11th Sept.

  Display Vehicles from 10.30; Public Show Noon to 4.30pm
After a two-year Covid break now in its 10th year !

A Great Day Out for all Classic Vehicle Owners & Enthusiasts, and lots to keep all the Family entertained. A must in the diary for September.

Pedestrians only £4 at the gate, Half Price (requested donation) for Display Vehicle Drivers and Passengers, Children FREE.

Huge thanks to Danny Hopkins - Editor of Practical Classics - for his continued support and unique and informative parade commentary and Prize Giving. At the Show Danny will choose a vehicle to feature in Practical Classics.

A great day out with something for all the family: vehicle parades, prizes, stalls, games, food, beer, plants, live music,  C13th Church displays - learn about burials connected to 10 Downing Street!
Marquees if wet, shade under trees if too hot.

Now in its tenth year, this Show has become a highlight in the regional summer calendar yet has retained its quaint charm with a growing loyal following; 160+ display vehicles. All monies raised will help our village to maintain its Village Hall and restore our beautiful mediaeval church which sits alongside the show field and will form part of the day’s programme.

If you have never been before, Croydon is a small village set on a hill in beautiful South Cambridgeshire countryside. The village lies about 7 miles north of Royston on the A1198 and about 1 mile west of Arrington and Wimpole Park. The Postcode for the Show is SG8 0DX

Show car arrivals from 10.30 a.m. and before noon, please, and no need to stay at home for breakfast as once again bacon butties & tea/coffee will be available to purchase near the registration desk.

Though we have always managed to squeeze everyone in on the day, it would greatly assist our planning to know of your attendance in advance. Replies using one of the methods indicated below would be most gratefully received.

A huge THANK YOU in anticipation of your support. Please pass this mail on to other enthusiasts and friends, and invite your family to a great day out!
