Deloreans DO NOT HAVE PUSHRODS---Lie #1
On your Story below,I had the drive plowed,Rob called me out of the
Blue (a few days notice)And whatever was there was NOW CONCRETE.
Lets see You wanted to clear the Concrete snow(about 10hrs labor)
72 hrs to pack evrything for you guys.
Fix steps 3 hours,---What am I a Work Horse!!
I did NOT want to do it on that day BUT HE (Rob)INSISTED ON it!! As
he said it was the only Time he could get a group of people together.
So it left me NO choice BUT to let them come and do their thing.
It gave me no Time to "clean up" for their arrival.I am only one
person as they said it took 5 guys plus me 12 hours to load
everything,do the math 6 X 12=72 Man hours!! I was supposed to do 72
Hours in the Freezing Cold by Myself!! Give me a Break!! As for the
Weak step (it was weak Not broken and has since been totally rebuilt)
Again at such short Notice it gave me no chance to repair it, as For
The Flordia I NEVER went to Flordia,that was ONLY BECAUSE instead of
giving me the full amount as was Promised, IN A BANK CHECK HE came
over with a PERSONAL Bus.Check---Hello Stop check please--So I used
that to Give the check time to Clear Period!!That part was another
stoty in itself,that unless they bring it up I will Not mention.
As for the MESS,Yes My garage at home was MESSY,but they left IT even
worse Than when they started,And my Big Garage in E.hartford,It was
Typical For a working garage,But By the time they left,it looked like
a tornado Struck in my garage,they turned everything inside out,and
upside down,in their Quest To Find search out for Delorean Items.It
WAS the biggest MESS I had ever seen,AFTER they were through.
In their Defense It was Cold,and If I was in their shoes I probely
would have scattered things all over the place,(like they did)to try
to load up,as 12 hours IS a long Time!!
On the Heat thing There was Never any heat made for that garage,it
only had heat for the offices and the downstairs garage.And the
heating OIL had already Been drained out,as the oil tank had to be
removed,as it is/was a underground tank,and state law said before I
could tranfer to the new owner the tank had to come out!!
I did the Best I could UNDER the short notice by Rob for heat,I ran a
40K Torpodo(jet engine style) heater,that with the Garage door Closed
made it somwhat bearable.Again Not my fault as they got there
sometime close to Noontime,and sunlight/darkness falls early in
January!! Again I DID NOT WANT to do it that day NOTHING was ready to
be Moved,BUT Rob insisted,what was I supposed to do???
On my house it is a Small Cape Cope style,it fills up
Quick,expecially if you use the basement for Business Equipment and
storing car parts,But I had Built Very VERY nice storage units to
store everything to store the parts and tools in my basement.
As for moving stuff in my basement,again it was a small basement with
thing stored in their shelf areas,and had been there for years,again
afer 15 yera or more you can't possibly remember where everything
as for the banged up parts you are talking about(doors) they were
removed in the early to mid eighties,and stored since,and I had not
seen them since,He was talking about a little edge corner nicks(very
Minor),when the doors were removed,as in 1983-84 when they were
remove,there was NO set ways to remove doors,so at that time I
removed them as best as I Knew how in those days.A very easy fix,for
someone who works with Deloreans.
Remember this is/was 22years of Delorean cars and parts,parts will be
here and there in a garage,Most all Tires were in ONE LOCATION and
away from any sunlight (all NCT's) in very good to excellent
All smaller parts were located on shelves or Bins. Bigger parts were
stored,where they fit best,BUT only in the LOFT area.The Garage area
was used for the Storage of the Cars only,and all the Deloreans were
covered ALWAYS!! There was one "junk" area where a Junk Delorean
Black Shell was/is but that was in a far corner of the garage,and
used for that purpose--junk to be thrown out,as my garage has no back
yard to store "trash" and I could NOT leave stuff outside in the
Front area,so I had a corner just for that purpose.AWAY From any work
As for the Vega Tire/Rim it is a Orignal GT wheel with the orignal
factory tire in like NEW Condition,a very rare item,as for the
Laundry Basket Then you took TWO--Well they took it from my washing
machine in my cellar--I need it to do my laundry.The Broken one you
did not return,but I did not care about the broken one--just the one
so I could do my laundry.
How do yo make 22years of parts available for inspecting,in the
middle of winter,in the middle of one of the worst cold waves,this
area has experienced? If it was summer NO PROBLEM,BUT a Cold wave
HOW,please let me Know How?
As for new parts I NEVER ever said a load of new parts, AS new
parts,as Most of the parts came off of cars in the Early Eighties!!
>From Low mileage cars.
DOES ROB REALLY want me to MENTION how I was treated BY HIM!!!
If this B.S. HARASSEMENT by you guys keeps Going ON I will SPILL the
BEANS-- on his Mr.HYDE side.. IT was NOT a very pretty picture.
On the Junkman side as you claim--Go to WWW.Bricklin.org and look at
Vin # 1024 and tell me if that is JUNK.
Ask the owner of 16686,if that car is a Junker,he is in the British
Delorean Group. I totally Restored That Delorean!! Must I go On.
Just Remember ONE THING the TRUTH NEVER LIES,ONLY LIES LIE.
Again the date for the Move was Robs picking I could HAVE waited till
it warmed up a little,HE WAS THE one that insisted on that day!!
Also I had a buyer with a Down payment on the cars and parts,ROB
talked me out of selling to him(the other Buyer)And the other Buyer
was going to pay ME a lot More than Rob Offered,and he was also going
to pay me $1000.00 for helping him move all the stuff.
But at the Time I was like everyone else I put Rob on a pedestal and
because of the years he also put into the caring of the Delorean,and
wanting to Keep the cars on these shores,I let him talk me into
selling them to him.Remember I did NOT call ROB in any way to sell to
him he called me to offer to buy,even tho I told Him BEFORE he came
down to look,at the cars, That I already Had a Buyer and a Down
payment. But he told me in his words "Scr--w" him I want to buy your
lot.Again Had I know it would be like This I would NEVER ever let Rob
talk me into selling to him. He came, he saw what he wanted,and then
talked me into selling to Him.
That is the Truth and a LOT more to Come
If this Harassment does Not Stop.
Above is 100 PERCENT TRUTH
