    I just happened to be visiting some friends last weekend nearby and attended this show. Was nice to meet Rich and his award winning DeLorean and was a surprise to see the Gold D had taken a trek down to this car show. I had seen this car 15-20 years ago in Reno and do admire the brown interior vs the black interior in the Gold D at the Petersen Museum. Here are a few pics, including a close up of the damage to the drivers side door from an arson fire at the museum not that long ago. Apparently it is transfer from the burning silver metal sprinkler metal that landed on the car, bad luck for the Gold D.

    Rich, is that your car parked next to 4300? That's probably the closest it's been to another DeLorean in 40 years!

    Hey, Christian!

    Good point there about 4300 not seeing its siblings for a while.

    Yes, Tamir was kind enough to mention me and 0934 in his post today - that's it in his 2-D photo. Our D competed - and took an award - in Class W, Rare & Arcane, not too far from 4300's primo spot.

    I'm still putting together solo photos of each car plus more shots of the impromptu postgame stainless-on-gold car comparo.

    Getting the two cars together was fellow NCDMC buddy Ronnie D.'s brilliant idea (he left his D home in favor of entering his T-Bird which also took a class award). It was icing on the concours cake.

    Look for a posting and more show info soon.

    Here's a teaser photo of 4300 + 0934 - that's our daughter standing behind our car with National Auto. Museum director, Jay next to her.

    Come to think of it, the ONLY time Iíve seen a gold car near a stainless one was when the BTTF ďAĒ car rolled past 4301 in the Petersen vault. This is pretty legendary.

    Thanks for the pics Chris and Rich!

    Bummer I missed the show this year and this special appearance! (Tamir- you too!)

    oh well it was not in the cards this year.

    And for those that are curious...I was going to enter the Mongoose Delorean in this show as well but was denied by the organizers for being too modified from stock. Justified, but I think really they just didnt know what class to put me in!

    Sure would of been cool to have Rich's original car, the Good car and the mongoose all there. oh well!
