    Don was such a nice man, he always seemed to have a smile on his face and shared great stories. His love for the Delorean and the owners was unwavering. He will be missed greatly. God speed, my friend.

    The Don is down....

    Met Don at my first DOA convention at Tan-Tara in
    1988? He was always available to answer questions
    to help out in the pre internet days. Everyone was on
    their own trying to keep them running and Don was my
    go-to guy. amen brother...

    Always answered any questions Delorean owners had and was a wealth of knowledge. Met him a few times and always had a smile on his face and a passion for the things he did. Will be missed by many. Condolences to his family.

    I took my first car to Don a zillion times from 2000-2005. On my first trip, I spent an insane amount of money and when I picked up the car, he gave me this bottle of DeLorean Motor Center Wine. Iím not a wine drinker and for some reason, even after as much as Iíve moved and as many things as Iíve lost, I still have that wine. The last time I took my car to him, John DeLorean came by the shop and signed my glovebox lid. I still have that lid too, running on my new car. He was a very sweet guy with tons of energy. Hard to get out of a conversation with though.

    Don was a very very nice guy. Always full of life and energy. Knew him originally from when he used to fly to Chicago to do tech sessions back in the late 90's with the Chicago DeLorean group. And then saw him several times at his shop out here in CA.

    Thoughts go out to his family.
    Fan of all things DeLorean!
