Re: [DML] Can headlights be upgraded?

***Moderator's Note: Please accept Robert's invitation to contact him OFFLIST to discuss perceptions of DeLorean ettiquette***


Oh that gave me a good laugh! Aside from owning Big Lots, Sol Shenk 
also owned Consolodated International. Which owned KAPAC, which sold 
their inventory of parts to DMCH, which we all buy now, and have been 
over all these years.

So yeah, I guess you could say we've all been shopping at Big Lots 
for DeLorean parts all this time! HA!

Sylvania makes some decent lights. Yeah, after a quarter century, 
those OEMs look horrible. Either go with the Silver Stars, or get 
come Cool Blues. I don't think they make the Cool Blue bulbs any 
longer, but I believe John Hervey has some for sale. CBs are my 
personal choice, and I believe that the highbeams are about 10 watts 
brighter. A must for desert driving.

Now then, Wal Mart sells the same lights that Auto Zone and lots of 
other people do. I buy damn-near all my consumable products at Wal 
Mart for ALL my cars (filters for the D excluded). And when you're 
buy 7 quarts of oil at a time at todays prices, you bet it makes a 
difference. Even washer fluid is like a buck cheaper there a bottle. 
So what's the big deal? Honestly on-list or off-list, please contact 
me and tell me why?

I doubt that JZD, nor anyone else is spinning in their grave. And 
that is kinda offensive to just casualy throw out there.

And please, don't look down on anyone because of where they shop. 
We've got plenty of elietism to go around, and don't need any more. 
But if anyone wants, I'll be the lightning rod here. Aside from 
shopping at Wal Mart, on occasion I've even worked on the DeLorean in 
the Auto Zone parking lot, I speed too much, I sometimes eat in my 
car and sometimes make a mess (pretty sure there's some french fries 
under my seats still), I hang obnoxios air-fresheners from the rear-
view mirror, and I even blast Hip-Hop on occasion while driving the 

Nope, no one is rolling in their graves over me and what I do. If it 
angers some people, then that's their problem. But if someone has 
something to say about what I do, let alone where I shop, then bring 
it on. Come on after me, because believe me, I can take it and I'll 
do whatever I can to stop this picking on people crap however I can.
