"The D Rex is out on the prowl at the Chicago St. Patricks Day Parade.  Here are some interesting shots of the beast in front of my DeLorean before the parade.  These shots give you a real sense of how big this DeLorean is.  For more images and video of the D Rex at the parade, visit my site http://www.entermyworld.com and Rich's site http://www.entermyworld.com/rich."



I just wanted to send over a pictures of the DeLorean for this time of year.  Not often that you see a 110 pound pumpkin, let alone in a DeLorean.

Dang!! Here's what happens when you do a body lift-off using an in-ground 2-post lift. We noticed the problem at about this point in the project. Oops (and some stronger words!)

Next time, we use a twin-post outrigger lift. (Yes - the guys were able to drag the chassis out from under the lift).

Having all three of the above when you accidentally bump into John Delorean: PRICELESS!

Hi, thought you might like this black and white shot of a Delorean belonging to my friend Rusk. He enjoyed it and now has it as his desk top background.

Thanks!  This car is for sale!  Ryan- vin.#16301

I've been a member of the DML since May of 1998.  Last night, I finally got myself a DeLorean.  WHEEEEE!

Wow, is it ever fun.  Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures to show off to my friends, and these two I think would make fine additions to your site, and
specifically for the picture of the month some time. Ok, so it fuels to "Back to the Future" fires a little, but hey, it's good for a laugh.  Please let me
know if you enjoy them.  Thanks...and thanks for the DML.

I'm a DeLorean fan, and was driving (in my leased car) here in Holland when I saw these two DeLoreans standing in a garage! The next day I took my
camera with me and took some pictures of my dream car! The garage owner told me that he was a DeLorean dealer and used to own 4 DeLoreans, I told the whole story to the Dutch DeLorean club (www.delorean.nl) and they told me there never was a DeLorean dealer in Holland! The D in the back has an single turbo setup.

This picture is of my 1982 DeLorean VIN11596 at the 43rd Annual Toppers Car Club show, in Fargo, ND.  The ex-governor, Governor Schaefer of
North Dakota attended the show and i asked him if he would like to sit in my DeLorean - so here you have it, last year's governor, his wife Nancy, and my DeLorean!

Here's 3 photos of the first Delorean in Costa Rica.One is at a local car show I went to the next day. The rest are at the docks in Limon, where I got it off the boat. Notice the Georgia License plate that I am putting on the car. I bought it off a guy on the street for $20, no kidding. Sure beats waiting in line at the DMV!

For the DMC buffs, it is an '81, black int., 5-speed, 3K miles, brand new crate motor with "super-engine" mods, and total rebuild/restoration from DMC Houston.

The car is an 83 #16072, I just recently started restoring it, so pardon those seats (yuck) and other imperfections. These pictures are from Spring Break 01 in Daytona Beach

These photos are about 10 years old. The photos were taken at a used car lot near O'Hare Airport in 1990. We'd love to know if anyone knows the whereabouts of this car. If you know anything about it please write to webmaster(AT)dmcnews.com

Not really sure WHATs going on here - is Rich creating DeLorean-Henge in his back yard? You'll notice that these are not whole, but what's left after you hit something with the front of your DeLorean.  Here's what he has to say:

Delorean Rescue(?)
Attached are photos of 3 Delorean fiberglass subframes in transport. Please consider one or more for an upcoming Photo of the Month. It's not often you see multiple Delorean subframes in transit. I picked these up from out back of an old Delorean dealership. They were slated to be taken to the 'crusher' by the end of the month. I picked them up on Oct. 18th, 2000 and they are now in storage. Some or all of them will be used in my upcoming special projects.

Kathryn DeLorean, daughter of John DeLorean and Christina FerrareDeLorean posing in my DeLorean automobile at the 2000 Cleveland Show.  I asked her if she wanted to try driving it but she said she was too scared she would hit something.  I told her that there would be no greater souvenir than a dent caused by JZD's daughter, but she still declined.  I hope that she got a chance to drive someone's car because Ken said she had never driven one before the show.  What a travesty!

Not sure if these count as unique but I used to work on the Universal backlot in L.A and got the one of our cars together.  The one of the BTTF car on a hauler was at Jay Ohrbergs Star Cars in Sun Valley.  Jay built several replicas for Universal and I stopped by one day to see his warehouse full of wierd cars (The Pink Panther car, Red Baron car, etc...)
Hope you like them

I would like to submit the following image of Dave & Linda Colley's DMC. Their car was shot in a McDonalds parking lot. I place it into a castle picture, flipped the car horizontally, added more road and land under the car (it was a single lane road), added shadows, added reflections in the puddles & car. On this version I did not change the licence plate around, it remains reversed.

I'll probably get in trouble for digitally destroying the marque with this one.

Here's my submission for the "pic of the month" :-) It was taken in January 1999 during the Pink Slip road-worthiness test. Right before the brake test, the clutch failed, so the 'D' had to be towed home. As for the dog... well I guess even animals like DeLoreans :-)

After the St. Louis 1999 Delorean Convention we took a wrong turn off the highway and ended up here. I think it makes a great picture.

Here is my sumission for the DeLorean photo contest.  This was created with a picture of my D cut, cropped and shrunk and then superimposed over a picture of me at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.  I really was in Paris, but my D wasn't.

This is a picture of my first Delorean that I purchased in 1985, which  just happened to be right around the time that the first Back to the  Future movie came out.  The picture was taken by my brother Rob in the  fall of 1985 in Palos Hills, IL. (notice the toboggan slides in the  background)  I sold that 'D' shortly afterward, due to full coverage  insurance problems with a loan out on a 'limited production car', etc. Since my insurance company re-classified the Delorean as a collectable  in 1990, I've had no insurance problems and purchased VIN 03552 in July 1990 in mint condition from a collector.  Since I've gotten the urge recently to actually 'drive' a Delorean more often then shows, parades and special occasions, I purchased a project Delorean VIN 06683 in March 2000, to be fixed up for 'frequent driver' if not a 'daily driver' in the near future.  I'm still looking for my 1985 paperwork for the VIN of my first DMC.

This picture is of me sliding our car through a 90deg turn at an SCCA autocross in St. Louis on October 10th. This is the autox that was going on just as the DOA Expo ended. On my 4th run we pulled the in-car camera so that I could give DML member Bill Swilley a ride. I caught it before we spun around, but definitely slid a little. There is an MPEG video of it at the Mid-State DeLorean Club site under Events: http://www.midstatedmc.com/

This photo appeared in the Feb. 1984 issue of the defunct 'SPORTS CAR

or if there are time limits on them, if not we hope nobody complains.

December 1999 A nice shot of Mike's DLORIANN. Here's the story:
It was taken at Jones Beach NY at sun set. BTW my wife Lori Ann always wanted a vanity plate with her name on it and I always wanted a Delorean so we compromised (who do you think got the better of that deal?).
