I've been kicking around some ideas in my head today after speaking with Dal.

He's going nuts trying to catch up on orders from a few days of having his computer and phone system down. Even when he's caught up with orders, he's still working at full speed - starting at 4am, not stopping to eat lunch, taking 200+ phone calls and answering 300+ emails each day.

He'll be at Mountain MadneSS, and is trying to find time to get his car ready - tough to do working 14 hour days as he does.

I was thinking maybe ISSCA could do a 50/50 - with the other 50 going to Dal, sort of a thank you for just being Dal. Even if we all just pony up some $$ for him while we're there next month and present it to him? Along with a plaque of 'sincere gratitude' or some such thing?

I had some other ideas as well, but I won't get into them at this time. I will add that I would be happy to do what's neccessary to show thanks to our friend Dal.

So, what does everyone think?

I'm in. Dal is going to say "enough is enough" someday. I have no idea what we could get him, but I'll pitch in.
PM me.

Maybe he needs a personal female secretary to help keep him "company" while he's on the phone??

An excellent idea!

Dal has saved all of us some serious $$, not to mention, he's a walking parts manual and overall great guy. I'll help, email/PM me if you want some help getting something together.

ISSCA BOD, something official from ISSCA maybe?

While this is a great idea and all.....

ISSCA is pretty far ahead of y'all . Dal is already an Honorary LIFE member of ISSCA, which is the HIGHEST award that the club gives out!

pardon me for stepping in and putting my two cents in. i'm new to b-bodies and new to this site, but i hear about this guy Dal alot. even though thats the highest honor you can get, it doesn't help you answer phones, return emails, nor fix your car. he seems like he does alot for everybody. in my opinion, i think that if there's anyone near him that he trusts, have them help out getting his car ready while he's slaving away at work. money is also a good substitute, but i'm pretty sure he would appreciate the extra hands on. hopefully this guy doesn't call it quits anytime soon, i have yet to contact him to get parts for my car. i'm sure he'll be a good source of help. once again, sorry if i ticked anyone off adding in my comment.

Well said, sir. Excellent idea about fixing his ride too (if it's doable).

Like they say: What have you done for me lately?

Ed, I know he's Honorary Member #2 - and that's pretty prestigious - I'm sure he wears that title proudly. And please don't take me the wrong way - I'm not trying to step on any toes - I'm just throwing an idea out there. Of course, this would be something that would need to be approved, sanctioned, and administered by ISSCA. But, as I said, I'd be more than happy to help facilitate...

I was thinking along the lines of the equivalent of a 'lifetime achievement' type of award, along with some money, an AmEx gift cheque, etc. There's several hundred people coming to the Nat's - if only 100 of those chipped in $20/each - that'd be $2000 - enough to bring the man to tears (of joy) I'd think.

1996caprice9c1, excellent idea - If any Ohio folks close to Dal have time to give him a hand, I'm sure he'd be greatful.
