[DMCForum] Re: Bill's headliners

In case nobody's noticed: #5939 isn't the only car in my driveway.
Currently have 3 others out of service, demanding my attention.

For some reason my headliners (or lack thereof) seem to worry everyone
EXCEPT me. I've actually gotten quite used to the vehicle without
them. Kind of like the prototype that had stainless headliners.

Purchased #5939 June 2002 with 14K on odometer. Currently reads in the
neighborhood of 21K, plus 1K - 2K while angle drive was broken. Before
I started buying spare PRV's was my primary going to DC vehicle.
Total investment now exceeds $9,000, easily making it the most
expensive car I have ever owned (cost of Lincoln Mark V ownership is
less than $5,000, totally restored).

#5939's epitath has already been written. Will be driven long and hard
until wheels fall off. Of course I maintain it to fleet standards, but
even as well designed and built as it is: it is a machine with a
finite life span. Until then do not expect to see it presented as a
show piece (it isn't). At Pigeon Forge, for example, I am parking
OUTSIDE in the Convention Center parking lot. If some DeLoreans can be
compared to fine tailored menswear, worn to church on Sunday, mine is
like an old pair of blue jeans worn all other days of the week.

Louie is more than welcome to help me replace those tired 4x10
speakers, but he is NOT allowed to break my interior panels in two
pieces (did anybody else catch NEWS Message #37828).

> I've been prodding Bill to do those forever... lol. I think I've
even offered to recover the headliners for him for all of the help
he's given me with my DeLos. That's really the only thing cosmetically
wrong with the car that stands out. His DeLo has proven to be more
reliable than the both of mine combined lol. By the way Bill- bring
those speakers Saturday and we'll get them put in your car. Installing
them shouldn't be *TOO* painful... 
> Out of curiosity... how many miles has everyone put on their
DeLoreans since they purchased them? I put about 2k on my first one in
2 years, and more than 2k on my second one in 2 months. I ask because
I'm sure you've put more miles on your car in 1 year of ownership than
I did in two with my other DeLo Rich. I didn't trust the stupid thing
to get around the block without incident. It was finally starting to
get sorted out about the time it was plowed over though. Oh well...
it's just a car! -Louie
