T minus 23 hours

By admin No comments

In less than 23 hours, I will be down in Wichita inspecting and taking delivery of the car. Ran into some possible problems today, as the parts that were sent to the owner made it down there, but I do not know if he installed the angle drive to fix the speedometer. He is going […]

By admin No comments

Today I had my second lesson on “How to drive a manual transmission car for dummies” and it went rather well. I was able to catch on much quicker today, and only stalled the car a few times, mainly on inclines at an intersection. Thats something I will have to practice, but is not of […]

First time driving a stick & misc DeLorean spotting

By admin No comments

Well today was my first lesson on how to drive a manual transmission. Yes, I bought a car before I knew how to drive it. However, as I still have 3 days before I pick the car up, I have some time to learn. It has been something I have always wanted to learn, and […]

Ok, so I did it. Actually I did it yesterday. I was bidding on a car on eBay and won. Even though I knew what I was doing, I was still shocked to have had it happen. I was in a state of shock for the entire day, and never had a chance to post […]

Better news, more options

Today I called up my current insurance company, Allstate, again. I talked to a girl who was extremely rude and basically blew off my request. She said she would call back with a quote in a few hours, and six hours later still nothing. So, per a recommendation from the DML I tried Farmers insurance. […]

Possible insurance companies and quotes

By admin No comments

So today I called up State Farm (which seems to be one of the few insurance companies that covers daily driver DeLoreans) and was quoted a fee of $965 every 6 months. I tried to call my current insurance company, AllState, but my rep was out for the day. Will try again with them tomorrow. […]

Well, I checked out the eBay auctions today and there were a few new listings. One was for a car in California that had one owner, 33k miles, and has been stored for 8+ years. They had a buy it now of $8,200 on the car. I figured by the time I added shipping and […]

Grand Bend 2005

This weekend I traveled on a 3 1/2 hour adventure to Grand Bend, Ontario. We met there with several DeLorean owners in a meet put together by Marv from the DeLorean Mailing List. Everybody was extremely nice and supportive, and I received plenty of information from the owners. I have a list started of maintenance […]
