"Geez, where'd everybody go? (What is that, a stainless-steel dog?).
stpat-04 A rainy day in Houston? No problem, stainless-steel doesn't rust!
stpat-05 Gull-wing doors sort of act like umbrellas in the rain. John DeLorean had incredible foresight, don't you think?

4/25/2009  Conroe Cruiser's 17th Annual Show
A few of the north-side club members made this event, and also Heath and Antje Owen, all the way from Austin. The DeLorean line up also made the local Conroe paper.

  As usual, club members make their cars very shiny and clean, and always make a good presentation.

5/17/2009  Texas DeLorean Club 1st Annual Scavenger Hunt
(Comments by James Espey) Fairly good turnout for today's event, and several no-shows (you know who you are) all missed out on a good time and good food, too! In fifth place, with a negative 1295 points (-1295) was Roger Dartt, who showed up one hour and five minutes late with just a mattress tag. A tie for fourth place, between soloist Robert Goodwin and the team of Shannon Birdwell and his friend Mike. In third place, Blake and Phillip rolled in with 14 of the 222 items for 320 points. In second place, Kevin and Amy Dietrich arrived with 33 of the 222 items for 560 points. Way out front in first, Sarah and Alan arrived with 56 of the 222 items with a big 1340 points!

Thanks to all who came and based on the response, we'll try this again in the Fall when things cool off a bit...

  Many of the scavenger hunt items could be found by participants taking the body and pontoon off their cars.

6/13/2009  Tech Day
A number of club member cars had both minor and substantial work done on them. In the spirit of just plain being a good guy, the tech day was again held at Jay Streckfuss' shop, where he allows us to use the lifts and his tools. (I guess we should probably start giving some of his tools back, huh).

tech01 There's something under there...but what? A mouse? A bird? A parrot perhaps?

tech02 This guy did the most work of anybody that showed up. Even brought his own lunch bag and sun-screen.

In their usual great form, the Alamo Draft House invited the Texas DeLorean Club to display their cars during four separate screenings of Back to the Future. Show times where at 3:30 and 7:30 both Friday and Saturday. The management and staff there were extremely hospitable.
