    Just let me know the VIN, and I'll remove the old owner information, and then you can enter your information just as if that VIN is new to the directory. Of course, you should provide some proof you own the car now (a VIN photo would be nice, but I normally also contact the PO, because I still have his info on file).

    PM me if you need to.

    Welcome! And thanks for your participation in the new DOD.

    July 2017 Publication

    CoverPage.jpg

    I have been keeping the DeLorean Owners Directory (DOD) for a number of years now, and try yearly to go through it to make sure entries are is still valid, so to keep the Directory current and relevant. I am completing an audit by the end of June so that I can prepare the next publication (#14) in July. I audit DOD entries primarily by sending an email to each VIN listed, soliciting a response, and thus verifying valid email addresses. If you have received one or more emails from me and responded, thank you very much.

    I have found that some people move, and do not update their location information in the directory, as I understand the DOD is of low importance when moving one’s family from one location to another. That is why I send a reminder, typically each year, asking for update information and to verify the email address listed is still current. For older DOD entries that were transferred from the prior listing under Ken Montgomery but do not have a valid email address, that entry is being removed from the Directory. Email is the primary means of contacting you.

    I ask that current owners who are listed in the DOD to verify your contact information. You can do that by using the “View/Update” option at the top of the main DOD page. You will need your password to update your data. If you do not know your password, you can have it sent to you via email by selecting the “Forgot Pwd” option. You will need to enter the correct VIN and email address combination to be sent your password reminder email.

    In addition, many people will change their email addresses and also do not update their DOD entry with the new address. This makes contacting you by email impossible. For DOD entries where there is a seemingly valid email address, but the email tickler is returned as undeliverable, those entries are being moved from Active status to Inactive, with all information preserved except the bad email address. However, Inactive VINs are not published in the printed directory.

    Also, over the course of a year, cars are sold, or brought back to life, or rendered out of service for one reason or another. To help keep the DOD current, I ask each of you new owners to the DeLorean family to consider joining the DOD, by selecting the “Submit” button on the DOD homepage, and everyone who has disposed of their car(s) to make it known by deleting your old entry, by selecting “Delete”.

    As always, anyone can contact me by email for assistance adding new, updating, or deleting their data. Please allow time for me to respond in case I am not at my computer.

    And finally, if you care to, you can send to me a photo or website link you wish to show or reference with your car information. The application provides for displaying VIN plate (watermarked) and four others (such as exterior, interior, engine, window sticker, etc), and up to three outside web-site links. It’s always fun to see a photo of a customization or whatever is special about your car.

    Thank you.

    DOD Now Tracks Mileage

    Fellow owners;

    The new DOD now tracks mileage, in addition to other attributes already being tracked. You can update your own mileage from the DOD Update page, if you are a member of the directory and are so inclined (you'll need your password). If not a member, you can just send me an IM with your mileage, and I will update it for you.

    Go Here to see the mileage we currently have for your car, among other statistics. Return often and correct/update at any time.

    Happy motoring and thanks for keeping the DOD up-to-date!

    Thomas
