[DML] DMC Midwest

HI all,

After spending the day with Dave & Julee yesturday at the Club Tech Day and partaking in 
the Big Anouncement of the New Shop. I thought, I should say few words about what this 
means to me and our community.  I think at first it felt a little weird and I was not sure 
what to think and how the personal relationship I and my wife have had with them might 
change going Forward. But,After 24 hrs of thinking about it processing my emotion,  I  
have to say this will be a truely GREAT thing. Up till now Dave and Julee have been 
incredible in there support and enthusiasm the Delorean Community. The the personal 
time Dave has spent is tremendous.  So, in a way this was a very natural thing for them to 
decide to move into as a fulltime venture.  For many years now the The Delorean Midwest 
Connection IE: (the Chicago Club )has been truly fortunate too have Dave and Julee. If it 
were not for there personal support and a fanstic home shop in which to have truly fun 
club tech sessions I think the club would not be the same. I have always looked forward to 
the tech sessions. It is a great time for club members to get together a couple times a year 
to help each other and swap stories. My hope is that this won't change and that the DIY 
club members will still particapate in future Tech days. The GOOD thing is that we will for 
the most part be able to get those needed parts locally from Dave, instead of having to 
order them ahead of time or if it is something they don't have, let them know in advance 
and it will be there for the Tech day. With Dave opening the shop many of the club 
members will be able to have there cars serviced thoughout the year. There are alot of 
Deloreans out there that are in need of major work. Most of those owners are not 
techincally minded and just want  someone to do the work for them. This is where Daves' 
shop will be a great service to the midwest community. For me personally, I am A die hard 
DIYer but if I need parts I will now be able to get them more locally. In short, 2 day ground 
shipping rather than 4 or more. For the most part all of the Delorean specific parts are the 
same price from most of the main stream suppliers so why not buy from your closest 
location I know I will when ever possible. There are also those very few things that I am 
not comfortable doing ( Stainless repair is the big one) and now there will be shop within 
reasonable driving distance to deal with this. My hope is that Dave will get really good at 
this:-) because I have a few minor dings that need to be serviced. But, till now was not 
worth spending $1500 just to have the car transported to one of the coasts for service 
then add the cost of the repairs to that. This is the biggest reason the Midwest will be well 
served by A service facility. 

 I want to congradulate Dave and Julee on there decision to start this new venture. I wish 
them all the best and thank them very much for their dedication they have givin to the 
Delorean community over the years. 

Here's to the future.  Lets hope its a good one for Dave and Julee. 

I wish them all the best.
