    Thanks. The DeLorean Community really is a community and the success of DCS has been just as much about the people as it is the DeLoreans.

    Ironically, the treatment requires slow changes, so the only speedy thing I am hoping for at the moment is continued speedy wifi at the hospital.

    Returning DMC VIP Guest - George Levy

    Returning DMC VIP Guest - George Levy, former AutoWeek Editor

    We have confirmed that former Autoweek editor and automotive journalist
    George Levy will be attending DCS 2018. George was one of the select few
    who attended the DeLorean Press Junket in early 1981 at the factory.
    Below is part of his automotive bio:

    George Damon Levy has loved automobiles and motorsports from an early age.
    After college, he joined Autoweek, where he traveled the world meeting with
    global automotive leaders and raced in his spare time.
    He was named editor at age 27.

    After a brief stint at a major ad agency, where he helped launch the
    massively successful Goodyear Eagle tires brand, George started his own
    advertising company and automotive consultancy. He advised clients like
    General Motors on consumer trends and future product strategies. At the
    same time he served as creative director on the BFGoodrich Tires account,
    where he and his partner created the “monochromatic” campaign that was so
    popular that tens of thousands each year bought poster-sized copies of the
    ads. Later George joined Doner Advertising, where he headed up the agency’s
    Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mazda Motorsports and AutoZone efforts.

    In his spare time, George is a motorsports journalist and historian. His
    first book, Can-Am 50th Anniversary, featuring original interviews with
    more than 75 of the sport’s greatest names including Mario Andretti, Roger
    Penske, Sir Jackie Stewart, and Jim Hall, will be published this summer.
    George also serves on the Board of Directors of the Motorsports Hall of Fame
    of America and does volunteer work for the internationally renowned Cranbrook
    Academy of Art.

    An avid mountain biker, he works mostly to support his two children, his 1967
    Alfa Romeo Duetto, 1973 Mickey Thompson 454 Chevy Baja 1000 vintage racing
    truck and 1989 1LE Camaro showroom stock racecar.

    George released his latest book in Summer 2016 titled Can-Am 50th Anniversary.

    New "First Time" DMC VIP Guest - Dan Shea

    New "First Time" DMC VIP Guest - Dan Shea

    Picture Yourself: It's the mid-70's and you are a young man in college,
    looking for a part time job, when you get a call from your sister. She
    says she has a job opportunity where she works, for someone help setup
    a car display and occasionally drive the owner around. Sounds good?

    Well, that's what happened to DMC VIP Colleen Booth's brother, Dan Shea.
    The car? That would be Proto 1. Yes, the one and only DeLorean Proto 1.
    Dan drove JZD around to many meetings on golf courses and other venues.
    Dan plans to join us at DCS 2018 and he has some great stories to tell.

    New DMC VIP Guest - Author of Grand Delusions, Hillel Levin

    New DMC VIP Guest - Author of Grand Delusions, Hillel Levin

    The DCS Planning Team is pleased to announce that Hillel Levin
    will be joining us at DCS 2018. Hillel is preparing to re-release
    his book Grand Delusions with additional un-released information
    as an E-Book release, through Amazon this Summer, with the timing
    coordinated with release of Tamir's JZD documentary later in 2018.
    Hillel will be presenting the stories behind his book's research.

    Thanks again to Tamir, who provided the introduction to Hillel.
    Hillel has been a polarizing figure in DeLorean history and as you
    may expect, not everything can be interpreted in print as well as
    it can in person (and video) or as it's included in Tamir's movie.

    Due to previous scheduling commitments, Hillel may only be at the
    convention on Friday, August 17 (not for the Car Show on Saturday)
    but Hillel will be available between his presentations, to answer
    questions and autograph your hard copy of his book Grand Delusions.

    New DMC VIP Guest - J. Patrick Wright - On a Clear Day You Can See GM

    New DMC VIP Guest - Author of "On a Clear Day You Can See GM"

    The DCS Planning Team is happy to announce that J. Patrick Wright
    intends to join us at DCS 2018, but dates are yet to be confirmed.

    As with many books about JZD, Patrick's book is a "must have" in
    many DeLorean enthusiast's collections and Patrick will elaborate
    on some of his research done for this book and his JZD interviews.
    We have also asked Patrick to sell and sign copies of this book.

    Thanks again to Tamir, who provided the introduction to Patrick.

    The DCS Planning Team is having ongoing discussions with Patrick and
    we hope he will be available, between his DCS presentations, to answer
    questions and autograph everyone's copy of his book "On a Clear Day".
    Patrick will make a great addition to our group of authors at DCS 2018.

    Exactly 4 months from the DeLorean Car Show Event at DCS 2018

    DeLorean Owners, Fans and Enthusiasts,

    With Tax Day behind us (here in the U.S.), it's time to think about DCS,
    especially if you have not Hotel Registered or Event Registered yet.

    Just a quick reminder, we are about 16 weeks away from the convention,
    with DMC Car Show day of DCS 2018, exactly 4 months away from today.

    If you have not registered for DCS 2018 yet, remember to Hotel Register
    and Event Register within the next 12 weeks, for the best pricing.

    Hotel Registration and Event Registration prices increase after July 15,
    which is less than 3 months away from today.

    For the Links to Hotel Registration and Event Registration, and details
    about DCS 2018, visit the DCS 2018 website with the following link:

    http://www.deloreanconvention.org/

    The earlier that folks Event Register, the more VIP Guests we can invite
    to DCS 2018, and the more value and enjoyment for all our DCS attendees.

    Check your calendar and Summer schedule, so you can Event Register soon.
    We look forward to seeing many of you this August at DCS 2018.

    Thank you for your continued support of DeLorean Convention and Show.

    Regards,
    Rich W. [for the DCS 2018 Planning Team]
