Re: [DML] Re: Delorean Owner

Lets all tone it down and focus on the cars, not the personalities please.

Owners who have converted to carburetion might be insulted by your insinuation 
that they did not carefully evaluate their decision first and weigh its pros and 
cons. I will let them speak for themselves.

I have had almost no technical contact with owners after their conversions 
(plenty of social contact, but very little technical contact). One owner did ask 
me for a replacement choke cap, which I mailed him free of charge. If I get hit 
by a bus tomorrow I suppose they could ask F150 owners for technical support. Or 
Mustang owners for technical support. Or Galaxie/Fairlane/LTD/Etc owners for 
technical support. Or Mercury owners for technical support. Or Lincoln owners 
for technical support. Or AMC owners for technical support. Or Jeep owners for 
technical support. Etc. (In case you're having trouble reading between my lines: 
the Autolite/Motorcraft 2100 series was used on millions and millions of 
vehicles from the late 1950's to the early 1990's -- it *IS* a tad more familiar 
in this country than K-Jet...).

Lack of carburetion support from DMCH alone is a Red Herring.

Your scare tactics don't seem to work any better than your bullying. My 
suggestion is to ignore carb conversions from now on. You can't stop them, and 
they obviously cause you great emotional distress, so closing your eyes or 
looking the other way might be less traumatic.
