OK, having being informed of a slating by another 'fellow' Delorean owner, I'd like to report back to this thread. My intention is NOT to advertise, but to show off my hard work just like another other classic car enthusiast does here. Surely that's what these kind of forums are about..? I had a LOT of involvement with the features on this car including the time travel mode that fully automates from the GPS digital speedo, and providing all the screen accurate sounds that I have spent hours cleaning the channels up on. The creator of this particular car was very grateful for a lot of input and ideas, to which he now uses on his other conversions.
I made the website myself as a way of passing the time whilst waiting for the delivery, as more of a proud showing of my dream car. I only do a couple of events each year locally as I want the car to remain special to me, and not be turned into a business workhorse like some others have done...
I am happy to, and have indeed already attended car shows for free, just as other enthusiasts do. There's nothing wrong anyone making a little on the side to help run the car, along with events that I attend for Parkinsons to raise funds at their key events. If there's any classic car shows in Yorkshire, feel free to drop me a line and I'd love to pop along if I'm not busy.
I plan on being an active member here and have already been looking through some of the other members threads. There's some amazing cars here, I just don't tend to post too much on forums these days. The Mrs would kill me if I spent any more time with my car, nevermind others ;-)
I just thought I'd like to clarify that, and hope that the one or two that disliked my first post can see past the small link to a site I created. Heck, I don't even mind removing the links if that's what it takes for acceptance..
I completely agree Darren, It's hard to know what TO say these days. Reading back, I suppose I could have created a few introduction posts first but if you analyzed every post made on forums, and then took into consideration that a small minority would disapprove of it, you wouldn't have any posts!
Cheers guys. I'll have some more photos this weekend as I'm off to a guys birthday party a few miles from here. He's quite a wealthy chap so he is having a 50s and 80s car show outside his house (mansion) with his 458 :-) I'll make sure I report back with good car porn ;-)
Ah man, I thought I recognised those dates. I'm at the Bradford classic car show on Saturday then at a family do on the Sunday :-( If you fancy popping along on sat with your motor, try contacting them to see if you can park next to me :-)
