    It was barely visible by sticking my head in the wheel well. I had the car like 2 years before I even noticed it. When detailing, I usually just wipe the inside panels down without looking very hard.

    I was told the original buyer (who bought the car freshly remanufactured 2006), was a PITA for the staff.

    It was probably an inside joke for someone down the assembly line. Perhaps there are more clues behind other panels or under my headliner which I havent checked.
    Well here is my theory/educated guess:

    I think the "name" is actually Derry a city in the NW of NI, (called Derry by Catholics, and Londonderry by Protestants - and yes, I know that is a generalization).

    In that case, the 13 could refer to the 13 unarmed Catholics killed in Derry on Bloody Sunday (Jan 30 1972), generally accepted as the pivotal turning point in the whole NI "troubles".

    Had your car been a Jan 82 car, I would be much more confident in that theory, 10 year anniversary and all that.

    Perhaps the writer had a relative/friend who had been involved in some way. Nevertheless, Bloody Sunday was an extremely important day in the history of the province and for the Catholic population in particular. Often memorialized in murals of the time.

    One possibility any way.

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    The picture below I posted to the old dmctalk.com site. I donít remember who came up with an answer to the reason there is a candle drawing inside my left front fender.
    The reason I went in there was to replace whole bracket that supports the door striker pin. I stripped the threads on the Captive Nut inside the bracket.

    Was that not a symbol of the Bobby Sands Hunger Strike?

    That's it you're right. I need to save that link for future reference. Someone in Northern Ireland or the U.K. or Europe posted the link for the answer.

    These are my cave drawings. The white parts are my keycode.
    And I have more drawings here, but it is only a link to my blog, because those are not my drawings.
