[DML] This is what Delorean ownership is all about

I was searching the archives and came across something that made me
feel all tingly inside.  Hopefully Scott doesn't mind me re posting
something he wrote over 14 years ago.  This is what Delorean ownership
is all about.  Never take it lightly when some punk kid goes nuts over
seeing your car.

Subject: DML: Greenville, AL Gathering Report

Yesterday, March 21st, 1998, the Alabama owners, 3 of us, met again in
Greenville Alabama for lunch, conversation and comparing
troubleshooting  experieinces.  We even had two out of state guests who
drove about six hours just to talk with us about our cars.  Steve Rice
and his mother, Mary drove all the way from New Orleans.  Steve, who
just turned sixteen (Happy Birthday Steve) has been studying DeLoreans
for quit some time and his primary goal is to become a DeLorean owner.
It is really refreshing to meet some one like steve who is so
enthusiastic about DeLoreans.  Steve was full of questions and actually
quit knowledgable about the cars.

When Duke and I pulled into the parking lot, Steve had a look of
amazement on his face, without hesitation, he came up and ask, are you
Scott, the guy  that invited me to your get together?  I was amazed that
he recognized me, since we had never met.  I asked him how he knew it
was me, and Steve deadpanned, it was your car.

The high light of the day was when Bill Burden ask steve if he ever had
rode in a DeLorean, Steve answered no.  You should have seen the look on
Steves face when Bill tossed him the keys and said lets go for a drive.

Bill quoted the minutes from our previous meeting, "we had lunch and
talked about our cars."

New Business
Eat lunch
Talk about our cars
Wait for Bill to show up
Talk about cars
Bill shows up
Go outside, freeze, talk about cars
Pass out flyers for the Ohio show in June

Steve Rice - Greatest Distance
Bill Burdon - Latest to arrive
Duke Bladorn - Technical Troubleshooter of the month (ventilation fan
non-operation) What fan?
Mary Rice - Patient Mother ( got up at 6:00 am to drive 5.5 hours and
listen to a bunch of guys talk about cars)

It was a lot of fun yesterday, especially sitting in the resturant
watching cars vear into the parking lot so that the occupants could get
out and look or take pictures.

So, we will do this again some day, and anyone who would like to join
us, come on down.  We are an informal group, no structure to our
meetings, no agenda, no dues, just a good time.
