    I have my torsion bars and headliner out, and started cleaning the inside on my roofbox.

    What else should I do while I'm in there with the torsion bars removed?

    I did nothing to mine today. DeLoreans are dumb. My DeLorean is especially dumb.

    Myself and the family took our pride and joy to the prestigious 64th annual 2019 Hillsborough Concours D'Elegance in Hillsborough, CA today where we won 1st in our class.

    We were up against a multi-concours award winning Maserati Merak SS and the DeLorean's big brother - a Lotus Esprit. So great to see the marque get the recognition it deserves at this level. A very proud moment.

    Thanks to Rich for the photos!

    Congratulations. Well deserved. You've really worked hard on it, so glad it received the proper recognition.

    Your car looks fantastic, so good work. Neat to see that the DeLorean can foster the recognition alongside those other highly acclaimed cars (feel free to share some other photos of the event).

    Yooo guys! Thanks so much. It was a total shock to be honest. I wrongly assumed that DeLoreans just wouldn't be taken seriously at this awarding level. Boy was I proven wrong. Heck, I would have been happy to get a Judges commendation, but I just didn't expect to win out over a Maserati - especially one that has been invited to The Quail.

    When we were lining up for the awards ceremony, the Esprit got called first and I looked at my wife with glee and shouted - "We got second!". A moment later I could see the black Maserati pulling slowly forward to my left and in that moment I looked out to my fellow DeLorean buddy Mark Woudsma who was taking photos and I mouthed to him "Holy shit, did I just win?". He nodded. I was stunned.

    Again, I've got Ben (Soundkillr at DMCTalk) to thank for taking wonderful care of the car up until I acquired her in 2016. Since then I've been taking Ben's glorious car to the extremes. At this stage, there's only a handful of minor things to improve upon - and I'm especially proud that it's an original car that has never been separated from its frame. It's also been driven and loved. My goal for the car has always been that perfect balance between concours accuracy and a safe drivable car with a few electrical and mechanical updates.

    I call my DeLorean "near-concours" and today I've got a pretty fancy trophy to prove it's certainly up there with the best cars in the world.

    It's a very proud day for this perfectionist.

    I’d replace these door seals if they need it, Rich. The big concern is drilling out the rivets so close to the precious torsion bars, so if they’re out, you’ll have more room to work without worrying about knicking them.
