    How Close Are you To Another Delorean Owner?

    I'm about 3 miles to another Delorean owner unless there is one stashed in a garage nearby.

    Once people in the area know you have one they will tell you where they saw another. Every so often someone will come up to me at a car show and tell me they saw one in a backyard, a gas station, a neighbor, etc. Or how their uncle had one or a brother or someone. That's how I found one abandoned in a gas station. You can also look up the DoD and the local club membership. In some States you can do an inquiry into the DMV records. Another source could also be vendors, they know who their customers are but they don't often share that kind of info. Eventually you will know all of the "D's" in your area.

    I'm about 10 miles away from the closest person I know personally, but there is another car in my suburb somewhere (Maple Grove) of which I haven't met the owner. I keep hearing of sightings of it driving around, but I don't know who it is. That person is probably within 5 miles or less of me.

    There's about 6 or 7 other ones in my metro area that I know of. 5 of them are in our club, one of them belongs to some guy who works near my regular shop. One day that guy parked out on the street and my mechanic's boss came in and yelled at the mechanic because he saw the other one out there and thought it was mine. What are the chances?
