Re: [DML] Re: DMCHelp, DMCH marketing emails, and DMA FFT



Hi James,
  I've known you for a LONG time via the internet. I just checked out the site and will keep an eye on it but I consider John Hervy a valued vendor and friend. He's helped many of us over the phone without compensation and as long as he posts here this will be my main site for information.

          As evidenced by my late reply here, I simply don't have time to
monitor and reply to messages on all the different lists and forums
that are out there.

I, for one, have grown less and less fond of the DML format, and find
the DMChelp.com style easier to keep track of and follow. Since it is
supported by all the full-service vendors, it has been easier to make
it the official source for DMC-company related news.

News of new parts, products and other updates go from us to
DMChelp.com first, and then to subscribers to our free email
newsletter - like the one sent out today announcing the availability
of the new reproduction engine cover hinges, striker bars, and more.

>From time to time I will see what is going on in the various
forums/lists other than DMChelp.com, but as we move closer to fruition
on various parts and other projects here, my time for that has grown
even more limited.

Look forward to seeing you next month back in your neck of the woods,
and hoping to see a lot of my own locals THIS WEEKEND at the Texas All
British Car Days in Round Rock, Texas - http://www.txabcd.org - we're
looking to beat our "personal best" record of 10 DeLoreans at this
show...look for a wrap-up report early next week at, where else,
http://www.dmchelp.com :-)

James

PS - There's a good chance of a Stage III car being at the FFT, I'll
know more later in October (and probably post it first at DMChelp.com).
