This is the project DeLorean I bought back in July of 08.
This video was taken in 2008 while we prepped the car for the trailer ride to my shop. The car basically sat in a cornfield for years before I purchased her. Its and Aug. 81 build, #2923, black interior, automatic. Im currently doing a complete frame-off restoration on the car. More videos on the way!
DeLorean #4772 started for first time in 18 years - www.delorean.co.uk
My 7th project DeLorean bursts into life after a complete engine tear-down
due to water ingress. A corroded liner was replaced and its rotten seat was
welded up and machined. The valves were all cleaned and re-lapped in with
new seals, and the heads were skimmed. As you can see, one item was
neglected in the reassembly...! The big puff of smoke at the start is due
to all the assembly oil burning off.
MY DELOREAN - 1 YEAR
A recap of my Delorean - from just before I purschased it, up until the
other week...marking 1 year that I have had her. There's pic's of the
progress and some video footage of fun... I know that just pic's can get
boring! Some b/ground music to keep the video alive aswell!
(Not the best quality, due to having to downsize it - so that it's not too
much of a pain to load for everyone)
The project is still in progress, but despite that... I'm Living the dream
and loving it!
65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
DeLorean #3352 restoration www.delorean.co.uk
This video is cut together from the footage I shot over the course of
restoring #3352 from a barn-find in Ohio to a UK registered car with 2.5
Renault turbo engine. I stripped down
and rebuilt so much that it's easier for me to list the things I didn't do:
I didn't remove the doors, the glass, the left front fender or the wiring
The engine was assembled from a donor from a crashed Alpine GTA, but the
ancillaries (turbo, chargecooler, engine
management, Exhaust, intake manifold)
were taken from an earlier conversion which had been abused and whose
engine was totally worn out after approx 20,000 miles. This is why not
everything is new and shiny.
My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
My son has been looking for a car for a while now. He wanted something
that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third
generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a
bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and
modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a
1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already
added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and
coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe
connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great
base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

My Mustang Project Car
Well this is a video about my project car a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. I haven't done any
video on it because I haven't really been working on it. I used it as a
daily driver for 2 years but kept having problem with it. Also had 2 piston
rings fail on the # 5 cylinder so now I need a new block. Wish I knew why
the engine failed on me only had 2000 miles on it after the rebuild. I hope
to get it running again soon!
DMC's New Electric Delorean -- /TUNED
Matt has had bad luck with modified Deloreans. But when he was invited by
DMC President Stephen Wynne to DMC headquarters in Houston, he couldn't
resist. In addition to seeing the massive stockpile of Delorean parts, Matt
gets to test their new prototype fully-electric Delorean.
DeLorean #4772 leaves for its new home
Jonathan collects his new car... and with full knowledge of what he was
taking on, decided to drive it home to Edinburgh in one hit, despite having
only test mileage on it after restoration. A brave man. And it made it
without a hitch! (BTW I was holding the camera with my right hand when
Jonny went to shake my hand - hence the daft laughter!)
