[DMCForum] Inappropriate Car Show Behavior?



I would like to register a complaint, and call someone out on the carpet
and that person is MONTE CHAMOS.
Most of you don't know who this person is as he is not very active in the 
DeLorean
community and I believe that this is his first time coming to the show.
Monte owns one of the time machine replicas, and a very good one I might 
add.
Monte is good friends with another BTTF prop builder from Oklahoma by the 
name
of GARY WEAVER who runs a prop website.
Gary has had it in for me for ever since I created a competing website.
The point of my website, http://www.bttfstuff.com was for a single place
where fans could get all of the props and instructions on how to build the
props. This upset Gary because by revealing all of his "secrets" it made it 
not
only hard for him to horde secret parts, but hard to sell his parts at an 
extreme
markup. Monte bought many of the parts on his car from Gary.
Gary is also one of these controlling people who will refuse to sell to you
if you ever buy from another prop builder....needless to say Gary and Monte
are rather tight.

I have never met Monte that I know of, I have never done business with him
in any way. The only reason I know of him is that I had posted a photo of 
his
car on my website under my archive of past builders.

Enough background.....
Fast forward to the show.
Monte decided it would be a fun prank to apply a few well placed vulgar 
stickers
that say "Videobob sucks XXXX" and the like.....when I confronted him about 
this
he threatened me with violence, and vandalism to my car.

I immediately notified Ken about this, who so far really hasn't done much 
about it.
He said he would mention it to hotel security, but to be honest I am little 
disappointed.
I feel sure that if it had been ME who did this, I would have been ejected 
from the building.
Let's face it, despite your opinion of me, this is over the line, 
defamatory, slanderous and
an assassination of my character.

For those of you out there who do know me, who have done business with me,
who know what is right and what is wrong I am calling on you to not only let 
MONTE
and GARY know how inappropriate this is, but to also tell KEN that you feel 
action should
be taken. I think MONTE should be asked to leave the show...at the least.

So never mind your opinion of me, this is not about me, this is about 
appropriate
behavior at our car shows, and the appropriate actions that should be taken 
when
things like this happen. An example should be set to let people like Monte 
know that
you can't use vulgar, defamatory signs and make threats and get away with 
it.

Let them know it.
All I can do is take the high road and let Monte and Gary dig their own 
graves.
What comes around goes around.
