Re: [DML] DeLorean Owners Association??



Unless the DOA goes back to it roots..meaning having regional chapters and stop the BS of trying to aim towards the few rich upper crust that own deloreans(what D1 was and still doing) and aim for the average blue collar owner..it is doomed to become DOA...or at best a California owners club.I was a member when it had regional chapters..and it was a very nice active club..but being active based in California only today  it really does nothing for the average owner in the other states..except to use the membership funds for whatever events that are held in their base region.

I used to be a member of the DOA years ago, good magazine, but felt a little too closely tied to Delorean One, which most Delorean owners I know of steer clear of.  Myself included, considering I also have had a bad experience with D1.  With the magazine going forward, I would recommend more info on services and offerings of the other Delorean facilities and custom shops, as well as tech sections, as in the 'Deloreans' magazine.  Again, it's been a couple of years since I've read Delorean World, so my thoughts on the matter may be. . .outdated.  Just my 2 cents!

> Josh... I had heard notrhing on the Association for so long I just said screw it. A couple of years back Baker got me to renew for two years with the promise of an additional year for free.  The last time I spoke with him he had left the DOA and I asked him about the magazine and what had happened.  I told him he had enticed me to renew but nothing had changed since then.  I expressed my disgust and he made a statement to the effect that he got my money didn't he.  At that point I decided I would avoid the DOA at all costs.  Josh..you are a good man and I wish you well in this

Last I checked, the website is still up and running, complete with an events page, and several cars for sale. The new improved store project got under way this week, and we're looking forward to getting that launched again shortly. In the meantime, membership is still available through the site, or by contacting our long-time treasurer, Joan Truscott. Anyone interested in redesigning and updating the magazine website, should contact me! (jhaldeman(AT)fuse.net)

This forum could take a poll..Is Delorean Owners Association Dead on arrival? Is DOA dao? I, for one think it is stone cold dead.
