RE: [DML] DOA/DCS



Josh, I recommend that the DOA board investigate how other car clubs do
it.  The insurance, publications, etc. cannot be too different from one
national car club to another.  Compared to its peers, the DOA's $75
price tag seems awfully steep.   Here are some examples:


The Studebaker Drivers Club is as low as $10/year (no magazine option)
or $27.50 including their excellent MONTHLY magazine "Turning Wheels":

The Packard Club costs $40/year:

The Bricklin International Owners Club also costs $40/year:

The Porsche Club of America is $42/year (longer memberships cost
less/year):

Even the venerable Classis Car Club of America is only $60/year:

The Ferrari Club of America costs $100-$135 depending on where you live,
but they put on some spiffy events:

I believe that the DOA offers a product similar to the Packard, Bricklin
and Porsche clubs, so $40/year should be about right.  The DOA board
would do well to figure out how these other clubs have kept their dues
below $75.
