DeLorean Mid-Atlantic Fall Tour 2008

For years now, the DMA and its members have been enjoying unique and fun packed events while enjoying their unique and fun to drive cars. The club continues to grow every year and member participation remains steady. This is one club with incredibly enthusiastic members.

This years DeLorean Mid Atlantic Fall Foliage tour was no exception to the tradition; it was a blast. As usual, we lucked out with fantastic weather. There were a little over 30 people and 15 cars in attendance for the tour. Along the way, the club even gained a new member.

 

  On Friday night the group met at the Dansbury Depot for dinner and to have some fun. The pumpkin martini’s were especially enjoyable. After dinner, the group went back to the Shannon Inn, hung out and slept.

The next morning the group was up at the crack of dawn. Gift bags were distributed to each car and inside were not only a bunch of goodies to snack on and drinks for the ride as well as directions, but each had a piece of paper and a pencil in it. The paper had a set of DeLorean Wheels printed on it. This was for our contest of who could draw the best DeLorean. The winner would be announced later at dinner. The group left the hotel at 8:30am for our scenic drive on some amazing curvy and hilly roads that tested the cars limits while on our way to visit Gillinger Glass.
 




 

Everyone arrived at Gillender Glass at about 9:50am. Members split up into two groups of people where everyone learned their history and saw glass artisans hard at work. It's amazing what people can do with molten glass! After the tour was over, members could browse their gift shop and buy whatever they want. To our amazement, the Staff was as excited about our cars as we were about their glass company! They all wanted pictures in front of and inside the cars. Of course, we obliged.
