|DeLorean Car Show 2014
It is car show day, this is what the event is all about. The official count was 159 DeLoreans, the most for a show like this. Heck, it may be the most assembly of DeLoreans since they were sitting at the factory. There was even a unique reunion of sorts when three consecutive VINs were there, parked side by side by side. Surely the first time in thirty-three years that have been together.
In the trade show tent, there were representatives from DMC vendors from across the country. Some debuted new exclusive parts ranging from tail light boards, front shock tower bars, front lower control arms. There was shirts, movie license plates, jackets, photos, and of course.memorabilia from Back to the Future. Everything and anything DeLorean was available. There was even a table or two with Bricklin stuff.

But wait, there is more. The Choir Club from Fairfield High School performed their Back to the Future production for the last time. Many of the cast were seniors and came back just to do this final performance for us.

Wait, there is more. After the performance, there was a wedding proposal in front of 500 people. Not a dry eye amongst us. She said yes.

The closing ceremonies included a awards, raffle, and presentationwith the Back to the Future cast. Bob Gale shared his "Doc Brown Doesn't Drive A Fucking Mustang" story. I have heard it twice and it never gets old. Right after the punchline was said, Ken handed Christopher Lloyd the famous shirt inspired by Bob Gale's story.

That was the end of the show. Before we left, we said our goodbyes. We met up with Terry and Oliver Holler of Team Fox and took a picture next to their clock tower display.
