[DML] Re: Why I love the Delorean


If you are a lone owner some distance from a club, I encourage you 
to make the extra effort to join and get together, even if only 
occasionally. If you ever have a chance to caravan with one or more 
DeLoreans, DO IT!  

Cameron Dengler and I made the run from Vegas to Phoenix and back 
this past weekend with our families (my wife drove the chase Yukon 
with luggage and extra kids).  The AZ-D was having their holiday 
party and we weren't going to miss it!  I think we pulled eleven 
DeLoreans together in Phoenix, including a "new car" delivery from 
DMCH to the party!

This was my first chance to really drive any distance since I bought 
my D in May.  It's been chomping at the bit being a daily driver.  I 
had no idea how much it wanted to GO.

Both DeLoreans performed flawlessly round-trip, gobbling up the 
hills between Vegas and Phoenix.  I rarely had to downshift, so I 
really have no justifiable complaint about the power of my D.  
Downhill was a blast... soaring through curves at 75 MPH in neutral 
for 2-3 minutes at a time.

With the sun shining, 88 MPH on the GPS speedo and Cameron's iPod 
broadcasting "Back in Time" to all three cars on "Radio Free DMC," 
we had a great time on the return.  

Best Wishes for D Holidays,


P.S. Bernie, you are not alone. I broke my speedo too. :)
