- I mean, if
you're gonna do it... you're gonna go big. Well,
doesn't get much bigger than THIS as a response
to car trouble:
- That's very me.
It's funny, once I'm within the walls of this project
I feel like a viewer too and it's only then that
I can say "Yeah, that's an Adam idea."
I just refuse to pay that kind of money without
some HOPE involved. Some wonder. Some DREAM.
I need it to get pumped up. Now I'm creating
something someone hasn't done before. NOW I can
actually get behind this and have fun...
- ...of course what
isn't "fun" is watching $10,000 disappear in a day. I
mean, I knew it was coming but once all the parts add
up and it's go-time... away flies your cash. Scary
part? He doesn't even have the car yet. That's when
the unexpected expenses come. This is just the
groundwork. Fucking hell. Quite a leap of faith.
Especially considering the business is way down and
will remain pretty stagnant for qhite some time. Then
again, this may help things considerably!
- Now what follows
the remainder of this month is Adam going back to
self-imposed school. It's similar to what I did during
the Back to the Future mod: I spent my time studying
every picture and catching my builder trying to cut
corners and cheat me out of parts. It was exhausting
and I bugged the ever-loving fuck out of him to get
the best product I could (still stiffed me on
modification parts as well as literally stealing $2000
worth of parts that came with my car: swell guy).
Thankfully, my brother won't be doing that but it
doesn't change the fact that I need to know
what's going on. I need to understand motors,
transmission, what goes into drive-trains: I'm
starting from scratch other than basic knowledge.
Like, I can change the brakes in my car, the oil,
etc. Kenny builds high performance motors from scratch
and I want to understand exactly what we're doing and
what we're modifying. I want to be able to have
constructive discussions with him. While he's working
I want to be able to think up issues he may not
have thought of, etc. We're a team now and I have to
do everything I can possibly do without actually
touching the car since I can't just move to Ohio
for 6 weeks.
- As well, I have to
get ahold of a LOT of people and piece together a new
site: FastestDeloreanInTheWorld.com. I was able
to at least get a mission statement up which should
let them know I'm legit, but more than that
I want them to realize this really is about
spotlighting the incredible amount of work some
Delorean owners have put into their car to swap out
the engine. It should be more of a community than me
just proclaiming my car is the fastest. There's a rich
history here and I have a lot of respect for
these guys. It will end up being a nice documentary of
not only our build but the rest of the community
providing I can get ahold of them and they agree
to be part of it. Can't see why they wouldn't, but
lots of people are pretty private. Time will
- Alright, away we
go! New year, new focus and the car is picked up on
SATURDAY! AHHHH. I can't believe this is
