Re: [DML] Electric DeloreanTechnology for sale

Very interesting news.

Several years ago when Carl Tilley had announced his invention the  
"perpetual electrical device" which was installed into his DeLorean I  
was very curious so I had attended the event.  It was held in  
Nashville Speedway, Tennessee.  Bruce Battles, another DMLer who live  
locally was in attendance with his DeLorean towed to the event.  (Hi  

About Carl Tilley?s vehicle?  I personally think he did a neat and  
clean job cosmetically in converting his DeLorean with the electrical  
power plant and all of the other necessary devices including the  
installation of all of the dozen batteries through out the car.  The  
car did run and had ran well that morning, now as far as his  
perpetual device working as he claims???  Read on.

For what I?ve witnessed, Tilley's DeLorean was unique in several  
areas.  For one, the car on a stand still, took off faster then the  
stock PVR DeLoreans.   Second, which was most impressive, it was  
totally quite!  No mechanical or components noise at all.  All you  
can hear is one click of the toggle switch to power it on and that is  
it.  There is no fan noise, no belt noise, no alternator noise, no  
buzzing and etc.  Upon take off, there is no acceleration noise.  It  
just took off with no lag!  You do hear more noise coming from the  
tires rolling over the gravel pavement.  It also was eerie to see the  
vehicle traveling at 90MPH plus with no engine or exhaust noise!  It  
was dead silent and if anything, I believe all I heard was the  
electric power plant's low hum when it zoomed by, or was it the rear  
wheel bearing?  You can see it coming, but there is no noise, no  
sound at all!  What you do hear if you listen carefully is the sound  
of the wind noise generated by vehicle moving and cutting through the  
air.  There is no heat generated from the vehicle, so the vehicle was  
cool physically and figuratively speaking.  I believe many of you  
would respect his vehicle, once you see it on the move, although many  
of you dislike the fact that Carl Tilley may have made a mockery of  
the DeLorean and the marque using his invention.

On the test track that day, his car did several fast performance laps  
around the track as to impress the audience and there was a press  
conference for the press, his investors and the many invited guess  
including myself.  There was a rumor that there was a representative  
from Detroit from one of the ?big three? to see his invention or  
contraption as many had expressed it to be.  All the people were  
allowed to inspect the vehicle, but they were not allow to see the  
"perpetual device" which was hidden...... hummmmm?   Anyway, I had  
asked Mr. Carl Tilley openly with the press listening, that I would  
have gladly to test drive his vehicle back to NYC and all he did was  
chuckled, looked downwards towards the ground and avoided in giving  
me an answer.  (Hey, I would have converted my DeLorean if I can get  
200 miles on one charge even if his device is nonsense and "full of  

Right after the press conference, Tilley again, did allow another  
smaller group of people to test-drive the electric DeLorean.  What  
was strange was that the electric DeLorean had developed a bad rear  
wheel bearing.  I said strange because, for all those laps generated,  
it was beginning to equal to the approximately the time for the  
batteries to expire.  Everyone was anxiously expecting the vehicle to  
die out, including myself for his device can?t really work?

Or did Carl Tilley conveniently planned it as many believed, for  
there was no noise coming from the bearing nor did the bearing  
collapsed?   So, out of the blue, he announced that his DeLorean was  
crippled and the DeLorean cannot be driven any farther.  Carl Tilley  
immediately stopped the whole event and he then had his electric  
DeLorean was place on a flat bed and quickly hauled back to his  
"shop" away from the crowd with no further inspections or interviews  
to be given to the press or to the public, only saying that he will  
?repair the rear bearing? and ?schedule another run in the  
future.?  (I am still waiting.)  The crux of the matter is, he could  
have changed the bearing in under two hours, if he wanted it to as to  
prove the worthiness of his claim.

BTW, the event that day lasted from 8AM to about 10:30AM, for it was  
expected to have been an all day event.  So off, I went to do some  
sight seeing locally of the many nice houses and places of the famous  
country singers living in that area of Nashville.  I later had dinner  
and waited after midnight and headed back to NYC.  Alone on the drive  
home that night, I was pondering what it would have been like, as to  
be driving a smooth noiseless and vibration less electric DeLorean?   
Despite that his device is questionable, the fact that his electrical  
DeLorean had given the "gull wing stainless steel car" another modern  
unique feature to brag about -- Electrically powered.

Hey, has anyone on the list toyed with idea of a electrical power or  
a hybrid DeLorean?    Gas in Manhattan, NYC is $3.45 per gallon for  
87 octane, with the price of gas maybe this is the way to go?
