Hey guys!

Casey (HillbillyDMC) and I had the opportunity to meet Kenny (Kenny_z) tonight. We had a great time, and he's darn knowledgeable about his new purchase. We easily stole the show at the local cruise-in tonight, and we had a total blast. All 3 of us were answering questions, and man did we share war stories. We ate dinner, and getting there was hilarious. We were in the right lane, and we had the left lane (traditionally faster lane) going like 20-25mph watching us drive by. Had dinner, and had a decent number of people stop and talk to us and take pictures.

It was a really fun time, and I look forward to hanging with Casey and Kenny again soon! A couple pictures for everyone to enjoy:

I had a blast and it was great meeting you three today. The highway driving was cool until that bag of trash was in the lane. The car to my right was gawking at my car and wouldn't let me over. Thankfully the bike lane was empty and the D is nimble.

I wonder how many of these photos were taken while we were in the restaurant. Next time I'll have to remember to bring my camera.

And yes, those are Companion Cube dice from Portal hanging from my rear view mirror. I am a geek after all ;)

I think the furthest one away is Casey (Hillbilly) at an hour and a half. I'm about thirty minutes outside Pensacola depending on the traffic.

I forgot to mention last night because I was tired but Casey's Delorean is AMAZING. It is truly the Delorean that all other Deloreans should be judged by. I wish I'd thought to get a video of him leaving last night. When he revved her up and that exhaust roared it was incredible.

Casey's car is what I call a landshark. That suspension is so well done - there's like 2 inches between the tire and the fenders. It looks, sounds, and has the "oomf" to be extremely aggressive!

I also had a GREAT time, good friends, good food, and great cars, what a night! Thanks for the nice comments abount my Delorean VIN 3270, but there were two other great Deloreans there that night:rock_on:

Are you local to northwest florida 88?

Anyone that puts that much work into their car deserves high praise, Casey. Between your D and Jeremiah's I have a light at the end of the tunnel for Red.

Kenny, at88mph owns a DeLorean custom job as well. He installed a 4.3L Chevy Vortec engine, and mated it with a Prsche transmission. I always forget which transmission it is ): ...

Duke, time to fill Kenny in on this one.

As to not inviting you, I am sorry bud. This was a less-than-24-hours-away decision. I was shocked all 3 of us even got together. Nothing personal I promise =D !

This is getting to be an almost annual thing. I met up with Ben (Bigben84) and Scott (whose forum name I do not know) at Bk tonight. It was another last minute gathering but it was fun.

Sorry about the quality. My phone takes lousy shots at dusk. I need to think about buying another camera.

Wow - that is weird and eerie to see 3 DeLoreans there and know I'm up here o_O ...

Wish I could have been there and made it 4 :(. Sometimes, I really do miss Pensacola, but that was a long, long 8 year stint of car-shows and cruise-ins alone (excluding 3 shows that Ben/Casey/myself attended together).

Glad it was a successful night for the 3 of you!

FTR, as of now, Scott does not have a DMCTalk account. He's one of those owners that kinda prefers to live "off the grid." He has some HILARIOUS stories since acquiring his DeLorean. You should ask him about the time he tried to impress the girl next door with the gullwings or about the time he had a tire shop local there try to take the rins off his car. Look at his psngr rear wheel....
