Delorean Car Show, Orlando
#1
Another great Delorean Car Show at Orlando.
Mary and I together with John C have had a splendid few days here in Mickey Mouse Land.
First night sat down for dinner and introduced ourselves around to those seated only to discover that our neighbour at the table was none other than Dangermouse. Well our superhero friend from Atlanta is not what would have expected, no, he is very sensible and does not dress up in fancy clothing.
I have promised to maintain his anonimity save to say he comes from Dunmurray and his real name is John!
Lots of information for future magazine articles.
How about these for a taster.

Mike and Mary

I too was shocked to be seated beside the famous Hoopers, what were the odds? A nicer couple you couldn't want to meet. And John C too, obviously. We had a very nice chat over dinner.

(No secrecy - I just try and keep my surname off the forums - you never know who is searching for you Wink )

Didn't know you were going to be there Andy, would have been nice to meet (and I think John/Jan from Belgium was to be there also) - I wish they had provided an attendee list.

Even though I live in Atlanta, I had not driven down unfortunately, but am now regretting getting the car more reliable and making the trek. This was my first DeLorean show of any kind, and I came down with my son, who was suitably impressed.

Next one is in dayton Ohio in June 2014, near the big collections of Cliff S (owner of may cars including the Toyota Supra conversion and new owner of Proto 1) and Rich W (of D-rex and DeLorean Limo fame) - should be fun.

I wasn't there (I wish I was Big Grin ), I just found this picture somewhere on Facebook and I recognised Mary and Mark Hooper (they where in Belgium a couple of weeks ago).
And yes, Jan Indekeu from Belgium went to Florida this year, but I haven't heard of him yet, so I don't think he back in Belgium yet ...

Hi Andy, Mary and I bumped into Jan Indekeu whilst in Orlando he probably is the one that took the photo.

Was that a hiccup, or a sneeze? ;-) my hay fever has been terrible this year, so I'm thinking, a sneeze. ;-)
