Re: [DML] Ignorant DJ



I'm going to stick my neck out here and defend our marque...

I bought a fixer upper D a few years ago which many have given the 
name "Screamin Yellow D"  It was a mess... but I can honestly say 
most of the "mess" was created by the type of care it was previously 
given.  I spent a large part of my time undoing things that 
progressively took the car into a state of disaster.  But most 
importantly I started driving it... thats how you work the bugs out 
of a 20+ year old car... drive it... repair it... and eventually you 
will have a nice daily driver.  I had the pleasure of recently 
running with 9 other Ds to the DMCH Open House.  While we started 
from St. Louis, many others hooked up with us from greater 
distances.  All but one of the cars ran flawlessly... and it had to 
be trailered after several hundred miles... why... it wasnt driven on 
a regular basis and had a fuel problem... ie... filthy tank.  Think 
about it, how many early eighties cars are even on the road today... 
not many.  DeLoreans do not suffer from constant mech and elec 
problems.  They suffer from poor maintenance and ill informed 
repairs.  Ive hooked up with a great bunch of D enthusiasts in the 
MidWest and I would get in any one of their cars and drive it cross 
country.  Find the people in your area who know the cars, learn from 
them, do the maintenance, do the repairs and you too will be as 
confident in driving your D as I am in driving both of mine.
