After having reservations for PF for 18 months, I had
to cancel at the last moment due to a serious family
medical problem.  Now, I must see pics of the DMCH
interior.  Where can I see some?

Subject: BTTF in Pigeon Forge

Just a quick thanks to everyone who came by the booth this 
weekend!  It was by far the most enjoyable & successful DeLorean show 
we've been a part of so far.

The way everyone embraced the BTTF aspect of the whole DeLorean 
experience this time was extraordinary.  I thank you all from the 
bottom of my heart for welcoming Claudia Wells, Bob Gale & Jeffrey 
Weissman with open arms into the DeLorean community the way you all 
did.  They all seemed to have quite a very pleasant experience in 
Pigeon Forge, and I hope Ken will continue to make room for the "Back 
to the Future" celebs at his upcoming shows.

Hope to see you all again in Chicago!

Stephen Clark

I asked Steve an estimate of what the cost would be for the whole upgrade, 
and he said it would be roughly $10,000.   But who knows, if enough people want 
it, maybe the price will come down a bit.   The air conditioned/heated seats 
looked very appealing.

Why does the Delorean Car Show only happen every two years?  Why not an
annual event?

On the way home to Chicago my car seemed buck and jump a bit going up 
those hills as well.  Shifting down into 4th seemed while climbing 
the hill seemed to stop the bucking and jumping though.  Guess 5th 
gear is just too tall for those mountain grades?  My car didn't die 
on me though, so I guess I was lucky.  Glad to hear that you made it 
home safely.

Let me know if you find out it was something else....

Subject: Installing an iPod into a DeLorean??

I just noticed today how BMW has integrated the iPod controls into their 
steering wheel and sound system, making it much easier to use than via tape 
adapters and FM transmitors.   Check the link here:   
  I am wondering who in the DeLorean community will be the first to find a 
way to do this on their car...this would be an amazing upgrade.

What a great time in PF. 

The friendships renewed, and the new friendships made, were enjoyed by everyone. The assistance given by fellow owners to other DeLorean owners who may have had need for an emergency fix, was to be envied by every other specialty car group. It was great to see so many fathers and sons enjoying time together.

An amazing thing crossed my mind on the 800+ mile return trip to Canada. I did not see one "for sale" sign on any DeLorean at the show! There were buyers walking around! Considering there was a Chevy show, with every make, year, model, color for sale on the main drag in Pigeon Forge, the opportunity was there for a potential sale.

The cross section of owners was fascinating. Some tight for spare money to get a needed part, and others appeared and spoke as if the stainless steel frame, was nothing, if the whim was there to buy! I met nice people,  ----  professionals, blue collar, white collar, dirty collar, unemployed, retired, various ethnic backgrounds, and skin color. We were one family, one vision, all enjoying "THE DREAM"!

Many thanks to those who bought the glasses I printed up for the Pigeon Forge DeLorean meet. They were all sold by 3:30 Saturday and allowed me time to buy stuff for a fellow owner, who could not be there, and peek at the cars, for ideas.
Ken, his family, and the many volunteers are to be congratulated for the tremendous effort required to pull off a function like this and make it work smoothly.

By the way, backing out of my hotel parking spot _at_dml_ 7:15am Sunday for my return trip, the speedometer cable or angle drive broke. All those vendors, all those parts ...... damn  ......... I had to be home last night, and it was a long drive!

In general, those who negatively criticize the overall reliability of the DeLorean: this show proved this 20 year old car can travel great distances with no trouble -- Los Angeles, Florida, North Dakota, New York, Canada, just to mention a few. Mine was an exception, and a minor problem, at best!  

Looking forward to 2006!

These aren't my pics; they're better than mine. the ones I took came out
just blurry enough to make them look like a dream sequence. Surreal. =)
