Hi David,


Some good ideas.   I do like the idea of partnering with other related car
clubs, but as many people have pointed out already, it's important we get
our house in order first.  That's tops on my list so that we can do some
cool stuff like that down the road though.


The idea of having events that pay for themselves is harder than it seems.
Ken makes it look easy but, as I know you are aware, it takes a lot of work
from a lot of volunteer labor, and a lot of product and magazine sales to
make sure we break even, and still provide the quality we want to provide
with DCS.  It would be better to not duplicate the effort Ken puts into his
shows, and rather figure out how we can best supplement and support them.


The DeLorean Museum group already exists.  It's just a matter of locating a
physical building for the museum to live in now.  Sort of a mecca for
DeLorean enthusiasts if you will!  Haha!

The way I see it if several of the Delorean *entities* can combine into a
larger entity then, even though many people are members of both the new
entity would be larger. Maybe large enough to start to see the ecomonies of
scale. If that is not enough then the possiblity exists for Deloreans to
merge with another car club, for instance the GTO's or the Bricklins Or
Lotus. It is very true the Delorean club can never be a large club like
Porsche, ACD, AACA, JCA or many of the other larger clubs. If the magazine
is so much of the cost then maybe it's time to just go electronic and ditch
the paper magazine. Before the Internet clubs had to have a newsletter at
least with the attendant printing costs, and mailing costs. Now clubs have
alternatives. My model for a club would be to make it free, an electronic
newsletter and magazine, and have the events generate enough revenue to pay
for themselves through a cost for each event. A little extra can cover other
expenses like insurance. A "super club" of all things Delorean could become
ambitious enough to maybe consider a museum for all things Delorean. As it
is now the Delorean community is to fractured. Way back the DOA had it right
in trying to get everyone under one umbrella organization. BTW I would
consider renaming the DOA. It has a lot of historical baggage and many
consider it "Dead On Arrival". Too many still associate it with Ed B.
