Hi everyone.

My names Lee and I've been a fan of the BTTF films since there release and always dreamed of owning a Delorean. Still remember the first time I saw a D when I was around 14 years old down in Cornwall. It was parked on a garage roof!! My father asked the owner if I could have a photo next to it. From that moment I knew 1 day I would have to own one.

Located in the West Midlands and we've just bought a new home with a large garage so it now time to fill it with a Delorean! 

Been watching the listings over the past few years and I feel I'll get a better deal if I ship from the US. Whats everyone's thoughts on this?

Looking for a grey interior, would prefer an auto but happy with a manual if the price is right!

Looking forward to using the forum!

Cheers.

  5th gear end cap wanted
Posted by: Rissy - 05 Aug 2019, 09:11 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (1)

Hi all,

I am on the search for a new Manual Transmission end cap.  The one which covers the 5th gear assembly at the end of the gearbox.  Part no. 103048.

I know this is a long shot.

Mine has suffered the 5th gear retaining nut damage some years ago, and was repaired before my ownership, but after having it off the car to do a lip seal replacement, upon proper inspection, it appears to be hairline fractured, and leaks oil quite badly, even with the fact it's been welded previously, and it's smothered in metal putty to try to hold it together.

The only solution from the vendors appears to be BUY A WHOLE NEW TRANSMISSION, which is a bit sledgehammer for my needs, so before I start saving my pennies, I thought i'd ask around.

  London Car needed 29/7-31/7 - Paid commercial shoot
Posted by: Matt Clark - 22 Jul 2019, 12:10 - Forum: TV/Film Hire and Work Requests - No Replies

Hi all

Had an email from someone looking for a car in London for a commercial shoot this month.

Quote:So the car would be used for a River Island Christmas shoot from 29-31/7. Location is in Omega Studios. It will need to be dropped off at the location on 29/7 and be picked up again on 31/7 evening. On the day we don't need any extra people there to look after the car because it is going to be static. Please let me know if this would work for you and the quote for this.

Obviously I've told them that an owner will likely want to stay with the car and that they should factor that into the price.

Contact Erin at wingmanerintse@gmail.com with photos of your car if you fancy it.

Thanks,

while he had some business management issues for some, he was a great innovator at a time when there weren't too many vendors. He'll be missed

  Carfest SOUTH 23rd-25th August 2019
Posted by: Darren C - 03 Jul 2019, 15:54 - Forum: DOC National Events, Car shows, AGM's and others - Replies (4)

Hi everyone, 

I’m pleased to announce that the Delorean stand has been booked & confirmed for Carfest South 2019  [Image: biggrin.png] 
(Interest was low on North & the information was so late this year that we thought it not viable)

As with previous years, we have space for 5 cars each day (Fri, Sat & Sunday)

Each year this event just gets bigger & better (just ask anyone who’s attended before. it’s like Goodwood Festival of Speed meets Live Aid!) and BEST of all it’s in aid of BBC Children in Need 

Dates are:

23rd -25th August 2019

Further details on the website (book through me!)

http://www.carfest.org/welcome/welcome-t...south-2019


As per previous years the Club package offers Car & two persons at a greatly discounted rate to public tickets (which are VERY limited to buy) with options for participant additional family tickets if required.

Okay, the GOOOOOOOOD NEWS...this year for the very first time there is a reduction in price! 

1 x Delorean & 2 people is ONLY £50 for the weekend plus camping (if required at £25/night)

Please let me know if you wish to come along and join in the fun!

Hi All
Got the car in for its first MOT this week and all being well will get the paperwork off to DVLA. Have found out loads about the car while prepping it for the test, some good and some causes for concern. The car only has 5k on it so lots of storage in its history. I would really like to get a more experienced owner to take a look around it once on the road and get some insights, I am near to Northwich in Cheshire, are there any owners close to me?
