Here's my 2 cents! (Why not?!)
Hurrah for Josh. You're a good guy and I hope the wolves don't eat you.
Clubs are fun. (or they CAN be fun. . .)
They are not necessary, but can give people a sense of belonging and 
purpose in this blink-of-a-moment life. Clubs can help organize 
useful data or preserve artifacts perceived as 'Important' to the 
community. Clubs can enhance members lives with gatherings. Maybe 
even fund raise for a charity and help cure a disease or two.
I'd join if dues were cheaper, and more than paid for itself in 
discounts and other benefits. Nothing wrong with that.
I'd strongly suggest, like others have, to start by changing the 
name. DOA as MOST people recognize it: 'Dead On Arrival', is an ugly 
insult to the DeLorean automobile), plus it has that delightful stigma 
of the club's history.
It's also not all-inclusive. ('OWNERS only need apply.') Also, now 
with John's passing, it's inappropriateness is refreshed.
Just change the operating title, or the 'DBA' if you don't want to do 
a lot of work changing the red tape stuff in the bylaws, etc. (Insert 
whatever excuse you can think of here.)
I know changing the outside doesn't change the inside, but it looks 
like the guts are on the mend too, so why not start anew.
End of an era. You can still boast '25 year Anniversary', etc., even 
if you've changed your name.
Let's see how this 'bold' notion of change is deeply resisted (or 
readily embraced) by the board.
Have fun,
Oliver Holler
