Subject: Door seals

I've heard it mentioned that a Chrysler minivan rear hatch seal is
identical to a DeLorean door seal.  Has anyone confirmed this?  I'm
interested in replacing a door seal, but I can't get one from Chrysler
without knowing the specific model and year of minivan.  Anybody know this
valuable information?

Subject: DeLorean for sale

The 1981 DeLorean that had been donated to the University of Tennessee
will be available for inspection, etc in Nashville during the DOA Expo.
Recall that the car has less than 1500 miles on it (really).  We have just
finished the typical fuel system renovation associated with a vehicle that
had been stored for years.  Details (parts replaced, etc.) are available
to interested buyers.  This car is in outstanding condition and anyone
interested in a pristine DeLorean should consider it.   The university
requires that bids be received and I will be happy to send a copy of the
instructions to anyone who might be interested.  The minimum acceptable
offer is $20,000.

I have heard that there is an after market cross reference parts list for 
Delorean.   Does anyone have this compiled/available?  

Also, I have just acquired #1704 (1981) from Lance Motors in NJ.  If 
has information on this car, I would love to hear it.

John Truscott of the DOA has a database with background
information on many DeLoreans.  He was able to tell me the
original owner of my car, and the city where it was sold.  If
you really are curious I suggest you join DOA and ask John.

A Co-Worker just left me the front page of the 8/8/96 Intelligencer 
(Central Buck Edition).

The front page article includes a picture of Aldo Buono with his 
 Reading the article, it looks like the organizers of the New Hope Auto 
do not feel the DeLorean is Exotic, and have told the members of the club 
that our beloved Stainless Steel car is no welcome at their show!

The article goes on to say that Buono claims he has attended the show 
years, but this year the new hope show is trying to "Upgrade" the 
of the show.

Well, The show was last weekend..  Anyone know what happened?  I feel so 
Dised!  Delorean is now down with the common muscle cars of the 60's and 
70's!  Dont get me wrong, I own a 66 mustang and love it, but it's no
