[DML] Re: DMC Car Show Gettysburg



This whole "versus other cars" attitude is why I choose to forgo
indoor display. I did not buy a DeLorean to challenge or compete with
other owners. 

One of the reasons I drive thousands of miles to hang out with a bunch
of DamnYankee's (one word) in the DMA is because, other than a small
merchandise raffle, their events do not include a competitive element.
They are a bunch owners coming *TOGETHER* for fun & support.

(Marc does show off by weaving and passing people in the caravan, but
that's just foolishness of youth).

Please don't confuse my own ownership philosophy for a lack of support
of DCS and its indoor display. If other owners wish to compete with
each other -- great. My body will be in there with them, marveling and
appreciating their fine machines. I suppose it's beneficial they do
NOT feel as I do, otherwise we'd all be standing around a big empty
room with nothing to look at.

BTW: Newbies aren't the only ones poked with sharp sticks on the DML.
I've been the recipient of enough barbs to leak water when I drink.
Just imagine what a bunch of strangers would do to my vehicle in
judged competition. I'd be the first owner in DCS history to
accumulate negative points. At the awards ceremony I'd owe you a trophy.
