DMC Midwest Connect Spring Tech Session, New Battery

My car club held their spring tech session on Saturday, April 28th. The weather was great, and we had eight Deloreans attend. I assisted with oil changes, and a Mode Switch Rebuild. I also had purchased some items from DMC Midwest, and Dave S was nice enough to bring them.

We didn’t get a good group photo, but here is one with four Deloreans. Mine is second from the right:


My old battery is about six or seven years old, and seemed to be getting weaker. With a long distance trip planned for the future, I wanted to get it replaced now. Dave told me about how Interstate Batteries get swapped after they’ve been on the shelf for a while. This one looks to be manufactured in March, 2013!


Another owner was having trouble with his battery, and it wasn’t holding a charge. I gave him my old battery.
