[DML] Re: Raffle Car and DCS

More on the Raffle Car (VIN 6704) since I will have held it for 1 week tomorrow.  I got the car from Bernie to help with preparations of the car for the DCS raffle & Ken will be picking it up from me this week to finish the rest of the car preparations.

This is a GOOD driving car.  It's very similar to mine in all ways....manual, stock ride height, unmolested engine/wiring, good frame/body condition, etc.  The frame, as with any DMC that has been driven in event the most arid environments, has a few (and I mean few) blemishes on the frame, but no rot.  The car is a great driver & now runs solid.  In the week I've had it, I've cleaned & detailed both the interior & exterior.  I also went over the engine as it was stumbling on acceleration a bit when I drove it home.  Found a few small things wrong (plug gaps & coil wiring issues), made the fixes, & now the engine runs strong.  Also replaced the original brake master cylinder with a new unit & flushed/bled the brakes.

When Ken takes possession of it from me, he's going to go over it in the final month before DCS.  He's going to address the frame/chassis & beautify the parts that I did not have time to get to in a week's time.

The winner of this car is going to get a very SOLID example of a Delorean & will be able to drive it with confidence.

VIN 02075

The Sales Tax on the car will probably have to be paid by DeLorean Car Show this time.  In the past I buy the car pay the tax then give it away.
