any DMC owners near Cardiff - advice wanted
#1
I have the excellent book by James Espey on buying a used D.

I've summarized all the salient points and am in the process of creating a spreadsheet that will help me when I look over potential purchases (in the UK/USA)

Is there anybody near to me with a D that I could touch base with and look over their car so I can "acclimatize" myself to looking over a D?

Cheers

I would suggest giving Ben Matthews a contact he's probably the closest to you.

Kevin came down yesterday to view the car and take him for a spin.

He is now very keen to get a D in the not too distant future!

He may add images to a facebook page, I have given him permission to do so.

I really need to visit this page more often!  i tend to post a lot on facebook. 
I have owned vin 11789 since January - it was the last one of a batch of 50 that were exported to the UAE - mine went to Dubai and was brought back into the UK. It was originally sprayed red but a previous owner stripped it - alas it has never been driven for many years!
The good things about it? - Low mileage, chassis in great shape, didn't have any fuel tank in it (a new one came with the car), no water left in the car - I now have new rad, fans, water pipe work, water pump to go in - then I aim to fire the beast up. It's slow going as I don't retire for another year. oh there's also "the bad" but it'll get there.

I wish that a Delorean expert lived close by! still - I managed to install the passenger door torsion bar using the "one man installation process" requiring no jigs! 

Hope to "chat" with you guys soon.

Cheers Chris - I replied on the "other" thread.

Oh yes there is quite a lot of sand in there!

I would thoroughly recommend the "one man method" - but still protect the rear screen - I'm glad that I did protect it!
