Every so often I have to drive to Wheeling, WV and pass through Ohio. Are there any owners out near Wheeling, WV?

Coming from CT wouldn't you be heading in to Wheeling via I-70 and stop before you get to Ohio? Seems like thru Ohio to Wheeling, WV from CT is out of the way.

Newark and Canton OH are the closest owners I know of in the SE Ohio area. In Wheeling you would be much closer to all of the PADMC (http://www.padmc.com/) gang.

Well, I would be driving up from Virginia, close to Tennessee as I am not in Connecticut right now.

Well, if anyone wants to come by, I will be in Wheeling, WV almost all month long in August and I would like to finally sit in a DeLorean after Talonlover blew me off.. That is alright, it is his car to use as he wants and his word to break. Anyone want to meet me there?

I need to double check my drill schedule, but I believe I will be there then. I will find it to confirm.

Reason for asking = there is a DCO event (http://ohiodeloreans.com/events.htm) just up the road in Cleveland if you are free. I know there should be at least 8-12 Ds present.

Mapquest shows it to be approx. 130 miles away and if I am reading my schedule correctly, I have the 27th off.. I might come up, but I may need someones number or perhaps I can meet someone along the way and follow.. Would it be possible to arrange for me to stay if my unit does not give me a room that night?

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't figured out how to "subscribe to threads" yet to receive an email notification because of being too busy.

I have museum addresses at home and also Mike & Patty's address who's house we will be at later for the cookout. I can shoot you that when I get home this evening or tomorrow. If I get busy or forget - I know it will eventually be posted on the DCO's Events page (http://ohiodeloreans.com/events.htm) when the day's details are worked out.

Over night... not sure. I wouldn't be of any help because I would be coming from the NW Ohio area.

If some of the PADMCers (Pittsburg area) guys are going to attend maybe you could caravan with them?

Where can I find the PADMCers? I found their site, but I am unable to select the contact tab..

Sorry so late to reply. I've been crazy busy.

If you shoot a message to Dave Stragand (project vixen (http://www.projectvixen.com/)) at dave.stragand[at]ohiodeloreans[dot]com he can possibly get you in touch with other PADMCers as he is the main guy behind the PADMC site.

I just saw this thread so just to set the record straight:

After his first few posts I had pm'd Roman once or twice and let him know that one day we could hook up and I would let him drive my car. Well one day not too long after I did get off work early and it was nice out so I pm'd him and I think it was me that called him. My thinking was I would meet him halfway(he does live like 80 miles away after all) I suggested a Best Buy parking lot that was about 40 miles away from me and I knew it well, it was HUGE lot with not very many lamp posts to hit. I knew it well and felt comfortable there, and the strip mall was closed that day(I can't remember if it was a holiday, but I knew it was closed so it would be empty). Without a moments hesitation he wanted me to come to Hungry Mother park...his front doorstep. Almost like I owed it to him to do so. I am not familiar with that part of the region, and I certainly didn't want to go for a 150 mile drive that day to a unfamiliar place to meet a stranger on the internet in a big park. His demeanor and his words were like I was calling and running late with a pizza he had ordered. No "thanks for doing this"...not that I was looking for such but I certainly wasn't expecting to hear "Hey come to me so I can drive your car...that's to far for me to drive". (I'm paraphrasing here). At this point I was thinking maybe my skin will be stretched over a table lamp on his night stand by sundown and just ended the conversation right then and there. Judging from his posts after this incident I may have been closer to the mark than I thought.

I dont blame you. Honestly I think you were far more than generous just to suggest letting him drive your car AND being willing to meet him. I know I'm super picky about who drives my car (even when I had the prv). If I was in the same situation with my dream car, 70 GTO Judge, and someone that I only knew from a forum was offering to let me drive their's, I would absolutely drive all the way to their doorstep AND buy them lunch; and even still would be a little hesitant about driving their car.

I myself drove about 150 miles round-trip to get my first interactive experience with a DeLorean. It was I who drove to the owner's house who was kind enough to have me over. While it is very nice when an owner can go a little bit out of the way for something like this, it should never be expected in any way. I remember this person was always complaining about not having any money. Too bad he just didn't realize that didn't mean everyone had to bend over backwards for him.

I've had a little "Internet contact" with him too. I also got the impression he was a perhaps a bit looney, but most certainly socially inept.

Well this is interesting reading:

Looks like this is a pattern for him, wanting someone to come meet him so he could see a motorcycle up close? They didn't fall for it either.


Here is another one dated late 2008:

Apparently he traded his Stang for a Fit in 08, but according to his posts here, he still had the Mustang this year:confused0:....yeah I'm bored tonight.

Not sure, I just joined because I just bought a new Fit Sport, I traded my 06 Mustang GT in for it.

WOW! I never noticed him acting like THAT on here. But jeeze, what a strange way to go about looking at a bike.
