[DMCForum] RE: FAO Marc & Claude (Was: DeLoreans on Ebay)



Hi Martin,

Thanks for the email.  I wasn't even aware of this forum before you told me,
guess it's not moderated...  I read the thread which seemed to get a bit
unpleasent.  It never fails to amaze me how people air their personal crap
in public.

When I bought 16686 the previous owner put me in touch with Claude as
someone who had restored the car in 1988.  I've been in contact with him
before and to be honest I've only ever found him to be helpful.  He's sent
me a video of the car before, during and after his work aswell as the
original newspaper classified ad featuring the car before he bought it.  I
have no reason to believe he hasn't been truthful with me and the video
seems to bear this out showing a car with a two tone interior in immaculate
condition after his work, far from a POS....

Thanks for contributing to the discussion on my behalf and setting the
record straight.  It's not nice to have people spread derogatory heresay
about my car on a public forum, particularly when they have never seen it
themselves.

Are you going to Alexandra Palace this weekend?  16686 will be on the stand
- hardly the place for a POS!
