VIN #2045 (Bessie) Is Here!
#31
Out of interest..

How many other painted DeLoreans are kicking around?
(both generally, and in the UK, if anyone knows)
And; any other black ones?

Just wondering how much of an outlier I've got!
:-D

improved air box repair..

I think its 2 or 3 last time I heard, but its only a guesstimate ....some have a habit of going back to stainless!

I had one that was clear lacquered ...which I stripped off...Flashy the Red interior RHD....or the Barmouth car as it was also known

Lol!  Now that's a statement interior!!
Interesting photo that (and great plate, BTW) - looks like there's some DRLs going on there, what's the story with those?  A 'regular' modification?
One of 3 out of maybe 300 is deffo in the outlier zone.. Not quite enough to form special interest sub-club, even!!  :-D

2 black, 1 red, but I don't think this covers vehicles SORN.

Cheers, cool info!

My best guess is there are about 300-400 in the UK......but many are in museums and private collections, so are hardly ever driven.

BTW I soon removed that number from the car and it went back to its original SIJ number. It just didn't need it..it detracted from it.

The next owner had all the red stripped out!!!

AT LAST!
DVLA finally got through their massive backlog, and today #2045 was finally (after months!) awarded a valid Registration Number...
Henceforth MKU 478 W.
Hurrah!!
Plates ordered with one-day delivery, got some tidying up to do, but tomorrow, (fingers and everything else crossed!), she rides!!!
:-D

Excellent news. It's a major landmark. 

Now you just need to think of a suitable acronym!!
