A Special congratulations to my father (a Model A Owner) for
providing the most humorous answer:
My guess on your sheared part is that it is a Model A bolt and castle
nut attaching the radiator to the car. That's why it did not last
on the DeLorean
Congratulations to Robert Starling for winning the November 1999
Here is his winning "Most Humorous DeLorean Story" entry:
Being that I bought my DeLorean to drive and enjoy, I
drive it to work when the weather is good.
On this day I had driving the DeLorean to work and after finishing a
busy second shift, I was looking forward to the drive home. As I pulled
out of the parking lot, on to the main road and up to the first stop
light, there was a little white Honda that pulled up beside me.
The passenger was hanging all out the window, yelling something in my
direction, that I was not able to hear clearly over my stereo. When the
light turned green and I started to pull away, the driver of the Honda
was revving his engine and popping the clutch as if he wanted to race.
With all the jumping and carrying on that the Honda was doing, I was
quite amazed that the passenger was still able to maintain his position
of hanging out the window and yelling. This continued until we were
stopped at the next stop light, at which time I thought to myself that
it was time to put a end to there actions. I knew tearing down the
street in a good old fashion light to light race was not the answer for
setting these boys straight, but I had the perfect idea to make them
think just a little before they tried something like this again in the
So what was it that I did.......I pulled the door handle and allowed the
door to raise on it's own power, to give them a complete view of the
interior of the car. What happened was classic. As soon as the door
opened theirs faces turned a almost ashy white color and I could see the
fright in their saucer size eyes and in their stunned faces.
You see, what they saw when the door opened, was me sitting snugly in
the driver's seat, dressed in my full, blue, police uniform.
