    My VIN:    I respect my vin enough not to whore it out among the masses.

    LOL, two of the most irritating people on the forum finally find each other and debate "concours" to boot!

    Yes these two nit wits are arguing over the exact same definition of a concourse DeLorean as per post 4 and 6. OP brings no value to this thread or forum.

    This is a silly thread.

    DeLorean Concours handbook:
    DeLorean_Millennium_Concours_Handbook.pdf

    In this community this is the generally accepted guide for defining a concours car. A 400 point car is 100% concours. Any deduction is the arbitrary amount by which the car is not concours. That leads into the certifications based on accumulated points - Stainless, Silver, and Bronze (I dont know exactly what scores lead to what classifications, though I think 360+ is stainless). Historically cars that have been "certified stainless" have carried higher values, specifically in markets when buyers were looking for concours cars.

    The only car I've known to ever actually score 400 points with no deductions was Tony's car at DMCFL at DCS '12.

    All that being said, I'm not actually sure the last time an "official" DMC concours judging event was held... DCS '14 maybe?

    If you think that question is an attack, no wonder why you’re super sensitive on these boards and think everyone is “attacking” you. You might want to stay off the internet for a while.
    I answered your question. So where did I attack you?

    Sorry Michael, but you can hold that tittle sometimes also.

    I dare someone to find a thread where I'm posting "mean spirited" first. I agree, I don't back down. Why should I? But I don't ever start the BS.

    Of all the Certified Stainless and Tony's 400 point car, I bet NONE of them have Belfast air in the tires! Or original coolant, petrol, axel grease, etc. as it was when it left the factory :-).

    I heard Tony ships in filled scuba tanks from Belfast in order to keep his NCT's filled with prime Belfast air

    It will never be concours until it gets judged in a concourse...
    next to a Concord.

    This concludes my concern.

    DCS 2014 was the last judged event. And probably will be the last one ever. They had to beg people to enter anyway and barely had cars to judge. Nobody cares enough to prep a car anymore. It is a ton of work and it takes forever to score a car.
