[DML] Re: DOA (re-name)

Since there appears to be some consideration for a name change,
why not a clever "play-on-abbreviations" and make the change of
DOA to DeLorean Enthusiasts Association (DEA).  I always wanted
to walk around in a jacket with a big DEA logo on the back (LOL).

Most DeLorean owners have been annoyed by cocaine references
and I doubt that will change anytime soon, so why not have a
"DEA" sticker on your DeLorean to help change the subject as
the cocaine references are made.  Just a different "spin".
