Here's a spot for
Subscribers of DMCNews - The DeLorean Mailing List to show off a little. Here
are the suggested rules, but there really aren't any except for the limits of
good taste and my discretion.
----- The picture should show you AND your DeLorean. If you're shy put a bag over your head.
----- PLEASE do not sent me huge 1 meg picture files. Be gentle. Use your Photoshop or MS Photo Editor or scanner software to reduce it. I can handle just about any format, i.e. jpeg, gif, etc, does not matter. I'm reducing them to very small file size so don't waste the bandwidth.
----- Include a few words if you'd like - about the photo, you, or your car. Your name or email handle should be there. Email is nice in case anyone wants to ask you questions about unique features of your car. Web links are nice too. Let me know if you want to be completely anonymous, i.e. no email shown.
---- To save me a bunch of time, if you have Photoshop, here's how to save the picture - Image Size 4" wide, 72 pixels per in, picture quality "low". Photos will come out the size shown, and be about 15k file size..
Newest are on top.

Hi. I just got back from a tour
in Iraq, and the first thing I bought when I got here was my dream car.
This is me and VIN# 2423. She is a July of 1981 automatic with black
interior. The other people pictured are my friends, Matt and Bill.
All 3 cars are our little projects. Bill with his '79 Chevy Malibu (the
grill was being painted at the time of the picture), Matt with his '84 GMC
Cabellero, and me, with my '81 DMC.
Louie #1 - This is myself and #10115 the day I
brought her home (it has gone through much cleaning since then). It is a
December '81 build with gray interior, 5-speed, and a few extra goodies like a
digital dash and cruise control by Dakota Digital, CD/MP3 player by Sony, and
perhaps my least fav feature... air horns, LOL. I wanna send out a special
thanks to my parents for finally caving in, haha! You guys are the best :-)
Louie #2 - Another one bites
the dust. This is what happens when a drunk piloting an '81 Cadillac collides
with a DeLorean while traveling at high velocities. The car was impacted so hard
that BOTH doors were jammed shut. The extent of the cars damage is far more
severe than pictures show. Despite this, the rear fascia (which I borrowed from
Bill Robertson the day before when we replaced the water pump!) was found
completely intact, albeit some 50 feet away from the car. It was sheared off
clean! Despite all of this, I walked away from the accident with only glass
If anyone has any questions on dealing with insurance companies after losing their DeLoreans, contact me at Louie(AT)DeLorean.com. I'm now fully versed in the procedure, and how to get the replacement cost you want. As for VIN 10115, she was bought by another DeLorean owner to be a guinea pig for fitting a Corvette LS1 V8 in a DeLorean. As for me, I'm already back in the saddle...see next picture

Louie #3 - The Replacement
DeLorean #2. Pictured is myself and
VIN 5252, replacement for my first DeLorean... VIN 10115. Just like her
predecessor, #5252 is a grey interior 5-speed daily-driver. The difference
between the two is I've put more miles on #5252 in 2 months than I did in the
nearly 2 years I owned my first DeLo. It's good to be back in the saddle!

Thought you'd like this one - we
laughed hard after taking it.
This was taken on the banked portion of the historic Brooklands Race
Track in South-West London. The Car is mine, the dodgy bloke is my
friend and business partner, Dave Woodyard. His car was further down the
bank and not on quite such a gradient! (his doors were able to open
fully, unlike mine!)

hey...this is my 1981 DMC-12 Vin:
2926. I am in the middle of restoring it, but its starting to come around. I
came in 3rd place in the Custom Compact Car Jam 2001. The wheels are 18"
TSW REVOS in the back and 17" in the \ front. Its hard to tell but I have
power seats out of a 95' Infinity in there as well.

This is a picture of my father and I
with our two Deloreans. VIN 17167 (my daily driver) is behind us and 6808
is to the right.We were just taking them out for a Sunday drive. I have
jspec wheels and a custom cd-changer in my car, while the other one is

Here I am with my 1983 Delorean at
the Motorama Car Show in Harrisburg, PA in February 2002. It was the only
one at the show and drew lots of attention. This was the first event that
I took the car to since I bought it in November. It is a Sept.1982 build,
Canadian Specs., automatic trans., black interior and grey carpet.
This is Sean Spurlock and his friend
Brock Eson with their respective cars: a 1987 Fiero GT and a 1981 DeLorean, VIN
7003. Both cars were Sean's at one time, but alas, he was forced to sell them
both! At least my friend Brock bought the Fiero. (He still lets me drive it
occasionally!) I envy all of you current owners! Take care! Sean
This is my 1981 DeLorean, built September 15th 1981 according to factory doodles found underneath my headliners, VIN #3810, with black leather and 5 speed. It is parked here outside the Rosecliff Mansion, in Newport, Rhode Island, location of some famous movies like the Great Gatsby and True Lies. I took a few different photos, but when I sat in and started up the engine I gave all the onlookers a surprise - they thought the car was on display for everybody to take photos!!

This picture is of my dad, Pete, and
of myself, John, and our October 1981 DeLorean, VIN 4275. We bought it a month
after the DeLorean Car Show in Cleveland, (thanks Ken) and it fell right into
our hands. The DMC has 16,400 miles, and is a 5-speed with gray interior.
Everything is original, including the Goodyear NCTs.

This is a picture of me sitting in
the completed frame of the twin-engine
DMC-12. The frame had just been painted the day before, so I rolled it out
for photos. Luckily, I had one with me in the picture to comply with the
suggested rule that the picture show the car and the owner. Hopefully it's
suitable to put on your site.

My other car is a locomotive? #5939
one week after the maiden voyage of the
SS (Satinless Steel) Titanic. Purchased in Philadelphia, questioned by
family and friends in Washington DC, the vehicle performed flawlessly to
North Carolina and subsequently into the depths of South Carolina for a
tech session. 2000 miles in 21 days -- not bad. She's an October '81 build,
re-engined with a Volvo PRV, and in desperate need of TLC (how are those
headliners treating you?). Watch the list for ongoing progress.
