[DML] My first post...



Hi All,

	Well this is my first post to the DML, and after going to 
Eurofest 2006 I figured it was time that I introduced myself. My 
name is Andrew Cove, and if you were at Eurofest, you would probably 
know me as one of the trio from the Bahamas. I have been a lurker on 
the list for some time now, and I read the posts almost religously.
	I'm actually overwhelmed even now as I type this post, The 
main reason for me to come to this side of the world at this time 
was to goto Eurofest 2006 and finally see one in person. Being in 
such a small place like the Bahamas makes it difficult to find such 
rare cars as the DMC - 12. There is 2 known ones in Nassau (the 
capital) but I have never seen them. One is rumoured to be in very 
poor shape though.
	Well on the first night of the show, part of the dream came 
true for me, Alistair McCain's PILOT 25 was the first Delorean that 
I saw in the flesh, and that view of just the open doors above 
everyones heads has been burned into my memory. That night was made 
even more special by Alistair when he allowed me to sit in the 
drivers seat. Personally, I would have bought one of these cars 
without ever sitting in one, no questions asked. I even had my 
sister and friend that were with me teasing that I would hate the 
car after I got in. Well I'll tell you, THEY WERE WRONG!! Sitting in 
that car sealed the deal for me, and as soon as the money is 
secured, I shall be buying my own Delorean.
	Now I could never thank or mention everyone for everything 
that happened during the show, partially because it would be a long 
list, and partially because my memory isn't that good, at least at 
remembering names. But they're were a couple I'd like to thank: 
Cliff from Northern Ireland for letting me be a passenger in his 
Delorean on the day of the time trials. Claire from England for 
letting me be a passenger on the day of sightseeing. Paul, Alistair, 
and Thomas for carrying myself and my friend Cameron to the test 
track on the Monday after the show. There was a little mishap with 
the bus service that lead to me not getting from the Helicopter to 
the Track, but Robert Lamrock sorted it out for us. I must thank 
Thomas, because he was the brave one of the lot to allow myself and 
Cameron to drive his delorean around the test track. I glanced at 
him on my first round and he looked like a ghost, so I made sure not 
to go fast. He's got more guts then I think I would have in that 
situation!! Also like to thank Martin and the crew of Delorean Motor 
Cars LTD for the night on the town in Belfast. A great bunch of 
people.
	Course I cant forget Robert for putting on such a great 
show. I can imagine him hibernating for a couple weeks after such an 
effort! Absolutely wonderful experience. Also I'd like to thank him 
for sorting out our trip to the track. Above and beyond the call of 
duty.
	And while I've thanked all these people, I think I forgot 
one, The man himself, John Z. De Lorean, I thank him for his vision, 
his car, and this wonderful group of people. I find it wonderful 
that he built a car that brings so many interesting and friendly 
people together. May he rest in peace.
	Please forgive me if I forgot to mention you, I really have 
been blown away by this whole experience!
	Well I guess today is the last day of the Delorean Car Show 
2006, and I hope everything has gone off without a hitch. 
Unfortunately I could not attend for I'm still in England. I hope 
Videobob and Tamir has been recording everything allowable, I would 
definatly be in line for one of those dvd sets.
	I wish everyone good luck in the contests, and good luck in 
the raffle car draw. ;) I did get round to buying those tickets Ken.
