[DML] Thank You Rob Grady and Friends!





Yesterday I went out to the garage, took off the car covered and woke 
my DeLorean out of her winter hibernation on the first crank. It was 
time to pay homage to the man who meant so much to me in my life. I 
roared up the Ohio Turnpike and the car ran like it had never been 
put away for the winter. 

I met Shannon Yocom, Josh Haldeman and Patrick in Toledo. As we 
screamed up I-75 doing 70mph (Shannon has a lead foot:-) My car 
started to jerk, sputter and then stalled. I was very lucky not to 
get hit by the traffic as I made my way to the side of the hwy and an 
exit ramp but still very much near the roaring traffic. Now I'm 
absolutley no mechanic and I thought I'm in big trouble... I think 
God and JZD himself was smiling on me yesterday because just as I 
started to lift the louvres and contemplate what good that would do, 
out of the driving, blowing snowy rain came a blue-green DMC-12 with 
New Jersey plates, It was Rob Grady who was about 3 mins behind us 
but never knew it! I thought I was gonna cry..Rob immediately looked 
at the engine pushing on this pulling on that and then asked "Have 
you gotten gas lately"? I had, on the Turnpike. "I think you have 
water in the fuel". 

Rob got the car started and everyone followed me until we found a gas 
station which wasn't easy as my car would stall out every 10-15 miles 
on a very wet, windy snowy-rainy I-75 and Everytime the car stopped 
so did everyone else, they all stayed with me until it finally 
straightened out which put us all 1 1/2 hr later than planned to the 
funeral home. 

I hope John knows that not only did he build his dream car for us to 
enjoy, he also built a Brother/Sisterhood the likes I had never seen 
but experienced firsthand yesterday AND when I bought my car back in 
2001 when Tom Wilke and Rick Myosky worked on my car many times and 
wouldn't take a nickle for it. Same to Shannon Yocom and Joe O'Brien 
who adjusted my torsion bars and had fun doing it. I could go on and 
on. 

Thank You again to everyone for all your help yesterday so I could be 
there to pay homage to my Mentor and Inspiration.

AND to Rob Grady, it was really nice to finally get to meet YOU!
