DMC Open House 2005
Before I went to the reception Friday night, I stopped by my good
friend Paul Wilkins shop
where he builds Lamborghini replicas as well as repairs on the real
Here I am sitting in a 2005 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 - NICE.
First thing I saw when pulling into the hotel parking lot was this
you can't miss this car!
This is Ron Wester's "Screaming Yellow D".
The matching trailer is totally amazing.
I talked to Ron about it and it does in fact have real fenders, hood
and front fascia.
The rear is totally fabricated and it is all mounted on a cut off front
clip of a real pontoon.
Everyone needs one of these.
The next morning, Saturday at DMCH.
(yes, I am wearing a KILT)
Sometimes wearing a KILT attracts a lot of attention.
I like to be low key and keep a low profile myself, but I usually have
a spot light on me.
The photo above is of a one of a kind true legend,
something so amazing and fantastic that words can not describe.
The DeLorean Prototype-1 is also in the background!
Check out the tunes.
Craig tape deck with equalizer.
The non-working buttons are what they use on video mixers!
Emergency brake in operation.
I really like this leather headliner and the way it is cut.
It looks really heavy duty.
I really dig this heavy brown shag carpet.
Nothing says 70's like shag.
Notice the single striker in the center of the door.
Fuse box exposed.
Here's a photo I bet no one got.... this is under the passenger dash
the 72 WATT Craig PowerPlay Audio Booster Amp.
Can you feel the kick?
What a nice deep trunk.
I guess you have extra room when you put the fuel in the CONSOLE - DOH!
Speaking of fuel, check out the sneaky fuel location!
Believe it ot not, the tiny Citroen 4 cylinder engine would actually
likely kick our PRV's ass when considering how light this proto is
compared to the production version.
Around 2200 pounds I am told.!
Super deep rear fascia.
Who's the cat with the chops?
That's the REAL "DMCVEGAS" beeotch.
A giant wall of new engines.
The next night at dinner was fun,
Harvey (Vanilla Thunder) actually ate this crap.
Lawn trimmings with goat cheese pucks.
I am not much of a salad man, to me "salad" is the other crap they put
on my burger.
This was awful.
I noticed the waiter picking up a lot of full plates.
Here I am posing with my winnings from the raffle.
A copy of AutoWeek announcing the DeLorean.
The handsome cat standing next to me is Jerry Williamson
He is the one driving the car in the photo and gave us a great slide
Here I am posing with the actual spade used in the ground breaking
was Instrumental in turning the 90+ acre green
field site into one of the
world's most advanced automobile factories in just two years
I could use this around the house.
