So I've slowly been contacted by several owners from Virginia, which caught me by surprise. I didn't find much VA-based DMC activity while searching the interwebs, and this channel seemed very inactive. So, if you're from this general area and would like to make yourself known, say hello here and give some details on your car if you like. It doesn't matter how old this post is, let's try to get a list of local owners started. I'll start....

I know - I thought there were nearly no local owners based on the inactivity of this forum before this post! This is awesome. And, the two people who inspired me to post this have not chimed in yet -so there's two more! I'm going to PM them and ask them to check in. They have something planned - I'll let them mention it.

Greetings from Texas, to our east coast friends,

Sorry for butting in, but I felt compelled add the following information to this thread, as I am the keeper of the new DeLorean Owners Directory (http://www.DeLoreanOwnersDirectory.net) (DOD).

From thread posts so far, I count eight DeLoreans. If you had been a member of the DOD (I found only one of the eight), you could have downloaded the directory and found the names, city, VIN and email address of:


14 active & verified members in Virginia
13 active & verified members in Maryland

Obviously I can't give out names, locations and email addresses. But if you were to join the DOD, you yourself could have access to the list of owners in your vicinity. This is fact, is one of the purposes of the DOD.

As an aside, I note the DeLorean Registry shows:


94 VINs in Virginia
11 VINs in DC
121 VINs in Maryland

And finally just to clarify, the Registry is a list of all known VINs, and information about each car, but without personal owner information. The DOD is a list of owners and their contact information provided on a voluntary bases by the owners themselves, and shared only with other DOD members.

Also, you could tell the story of your car at DeloreanWiki.

And don't forget to buy Barrie Wills "John Z. The Delorean and Me: Tales from an Insider". Makes a great Christmas present!

I can understand about life getting in the way Steve and don't worry we plan on being around for a long time and we look forward to having you and please go to the website and join as it costs nothing like other clubs to join and we generally try to meet up once a month and discuss things that we would like to do in the club since we're just slowly getting this off the ground. I think you and I have chatted before maybe on Facebook and I believe on here as well. We will meet up in different locations to make it fair for other people that may live a little bit of a distance away so that way they don't have to drive as far. Hope to chat with you soon and definitely hope to see you as well with your DeLorean!

So Paul, Christian and I met up last week (new years day) and had tossed around the idea of some day trying to meet at the Dulles Cars-N-Coffee which happens every Sunday. It's a bit more east. I've talked to another guy (Matt?) who goes pretty regularly, and he says he meets up with yet another owner there from time to time. It's 12 minutes from my house, so I'm happy to go at a moments notice. I might swing by this weekend, weather permitting. In fact, there's a couple D's on the FB page!

Oh yes and we would love to travel to different locations and it would be great to get out to different settings and accommodate other owners who would like to join. Like I stated, we're just getting the club off the ground and only met up a few times recently but Paul would agree, we would like to get out and meet others and travel to work with the members who live further than others.

Hey Matt- one of these days we might actually make it to the same C&C. :-) Seems we alternate. I was at Katie's the weekend before, thinking you might be there, and I couldn't go this past weekend due to a business trip.

I will be headed to DD tomorrow if you have plans to go....

We love the get togethers and making video's when we're out playing. You can check us out at TristateDeLorean.com and we also have a youtube channel as well! Sounds like a wonderful place up there!

Hi Mike! I live in WV and also, along with my buddy Paul Shoremount run the TristateDeLorean.com club and a youtube channel. If you would like to join, also free membership, we post different locations where we meet and make it easy for everyone in different areas to be apart of the fun, unlike the DMA which only seems to have meetings in Jersey and way far out. I used to be apart of that but quickly got out. Hope to get to meet you soon! Btw i live in Bunker Hill by Charles Town and Paul lives in Stevenson which is 10 from my house.. Contact us yoday if your interested.

Hi! There has been some action, it’s just taking place on a different platform. There’s a group of us near VA Beach that get together on a regular basis. We’ve tried to get more people together but we usually just end up with a bunch of excuses. We’ve pretty much given up advertising it on here.

I think part of the problem is that most VA owners are near DC.
