[DML] Woodward Dream Cruise/doors up fun

Just a quick note regarding my fist D gathering. There were I 
believe 9 DeLorean's at the McDonalds just south of 9 mile road at 
McDonalds. The owner of McDonalds had a great spot for us facing the 
road, black & White flags roped off our area. Photo's will be 
developed and shared in a couple days on this post. The following 
are some of the names of D owners I recall. Shannon with wife 
Jeannette own a sweet D lowered with ground effects kit, Lawrence 
owns a couple cars, the one he had is a very early Vin #550 or 
something, looks cool, he has over size drag race tires in the 
back., Marv from Ontario, great guy, very enthusiastic DeLorean 
owner, great looking Grey Interior 83' 5 speed with aftermarket cup 
holders! He has replaced the shift knob with a stainless Steele 6" 
tall handle, looks like he could take it off and kick someone's ass 
with it. Very cool. Sandor lucked out with his Primo 81' 5 speed 
grey and received premiere accommodations under a 20 X 10 tent. It 
rained hard twice, he watched as we cleaned our vehicles. Sandor 
suffered enough when he showed his awesome D at the concourse 
D'elegance, Crabrook MI., it rained horribly that morning. Sandor's 
brother Gordon (great guy, friendly) let me use an auto detail 
squeegee. It was great swiping water off (go with the grain) and 
dealing with less water. I am not positive but I think the owner of 
the Back To The future car is Marty? His car has the flux capacitor 
and all. The car has amazing workmanship. Way way too much time on 
his hands. Another D owner was Rick not sure of last name had a 
Black interior early VIN car. The plate surrounding the gauges 
looked different; the coin tray has felt material. It would be great 
if you guys reading this know who I am talking about can fill in the 
gaps. I can't remember the guy next to me from Ontario. Stephan? Has 
an 82' grey Automatic, nicely detailed vehicle. 
I met these guys around 10:00 AM most were there much earlier on, 
Lawrence was there at 6:am, McDonalds owner had free breakfast for 
Ferndale Police & fire fighters, I am glad they got to see the car.
People were stopping by to look at the cars, lots of pictures were 
taken and questions asked. Ronald McDonald was even there!
At around 1:45PM Marty took off up Woodward to show off the Back to 
the Future ride. Let me explain something to you guys reading this. 
Woodward cruise has a bandstand of people a reported 2 million 
people spanning 20 mile stretch of road. Cars and people flooded the 
sidewalks on both sides of Woodward. You drive at a crawls space. 
Bike riders sometime join in on the flow. There are 3 lanes on both 
sides of the median, the curb lanes are reserved for the show cars. 
If you had an ordinary car in this lane people from the curb would 
not be kind to you.
I led a caravan of 4 D's with doors up for approximately 15 Miles. I 
was in front, Sandor & Brother Gordon 2nd, Lawrence 3rd and last in 
line was my friend from Ontario and his Dad 4th.  I am not joking 
when I tell you that people sitting seemingly bored with seeing 
100's of camaros, vettes, 57 Chevy's Road runners, Chevelles, and 
many other amazingly pristine cars, jumped to there feet and 
sometimes cheered as we crept by. People were holding signs with 
perfect 10 (some of the girls holding the signs were also perfect 
10's; I let them know of course). Sandor was tossing postcards he 
attained from DMCH to crowds as he drove by. There were total 
reactions of Joy when this took place. It was like receiving the 
Gold ticket from a Willy Wonka chocolate bar! The cards are actually 
very cool, it bullets some facts about the car on the back, the 
front has a dynamite picture of the front of the car angled shot 
with clouds in the background. Sad reminder that John is no longer 
here, is that on the back of the card it says he resides in New 
Thousands of pictures were taken of us, I am not joking. People 
would run out in front of me to stop the train to take pics. I 
definitely catered to those that wanted to take pictures. If I saw 
someone fumbling with their camera, I would stop let them get 
settled and have them take their best pic of the day. Ask Sandor, 
its true, the poor guy was behind me.

Flipping great time. Next year we seriously need to do something 
Big. I say D-REX leads the Caravan of lots of D's.

Thanks for reading.
