[DML] Wrap Up - Midwest Tech Session and BBQ



I guess with a near record number of 90+ degree days this summer,
it's not surprising we had another string of 90 degree days for
the DeLorean Midwest Connection Club Tech Session Day(s) this past
weekend and ending with the British Car Union show on Sunday.

A big thanks goes out to Dave and Julee Swingle for saving the day
(again) with a last minute change in venue due to conflicts at the
garage where we had planned to hold the Tech Session on Saturday.
The change of venue did allow for several bonuses, including the
fact that Dave did not have to drive anywhere and drag his boxes of
tools around, we were able to have a BBQ at the same time and we did
not have the 5pm finish time looming, although we did finish by 6pm.
The entire club enjoyed being back at the Midwest Monster Garage.

Since Marty Maier and Ron Wester were coming up early (late Thursday)
a few of us spent the day on Friday working on more time consuming
DeLorean maintenance and modifications, so there would be plenty of
time for the rest of the club to work on their cars on Saturday.
The Screamming Yellow D is now "sitting pretty" with spring spacers,
so Ron does not have to worry about ruining his paint in the fender
wells and my latest DeLorean purchase (two weeks ago), a mild custom
late 83 model, is looking good after a few custom modifications and
rear wheel spacers to allow for a set of "chubby 5-spoke" wheels and
a 16"/17" setup to accent a custom brake kit and lowered suspension.

By Friday night, Jim Reeve (MN) showed up just in time to put his car
on the lift and identify a few items that needed attention besides
the planned steering rack swap.  Saturday morning had at least three
more northern members (WI) show up, with Mark V sporting Jeff Fridays
custom exhaust on his DeLorean (very compact and nice exhaust note)
and another owner from Missouri showed up later Saturday morning.

The only downside was that Dave's lawn was beige and brown instead of
green, due to the drought, so many of the photos taken had much more
"earth tone" backgrounds than many "cars on lawn" photos you see.
I think everyone had plenty to eat/drink during the extended lunch
hour(s) and there was plenty of lawn furniture to relax in between
projects, both in and out of the shade.

Although it was in the low 90's again on Sunday, a few club members
braved the sunny parking lot at the British Car Union show, to show
off their well maintained, stainless steel cars.  To my knowledge,
there were no "insider plots" to steel DeLoreans here this weekend.

Later,
Rich W.
