The DOA Expo in Las Vegas

November, 2000

Despite wide enthusiasm, only 2 cars caravaned to the DeLorean Owners Association Las Vegas Expo. Ken Montgomery, James Cooper and his wife made the 600 mile trip from Northern California. It took 2 stops for gas and a couple of stops for the drivers to make the journey. We arrived in time to participate in the opening event on Thursday night. On Friday we caravaned with the group to Lake Mede for a boat ride out to Hoover Dam. Saturday James went on the Pahrump Valley tour while Ken stayed behind to tend to a leaking cooling hose. Sunday James and his wife returned alone while Ken stayed to attend COMDEX.

Everyone had other commitments for the afternoon so we didn't make it to the Chabot so We'll plan a special event around this amazing place in the future!

Dixon Car Show

Our second event in 2000 was the Dixon All-British car show on May 21. 4 DeLoreans attended and we really baked. The temp was in the mid 90's and the humidity was high for our area.
