    Maybe get one that reads "I'm a stuck up jerk that doesn't have the time to engage your interest in my car, if the tables were reversed however, I would want you to indulge my interest" There must be a way to fit that into 7 letters....that is of course if they take the time to read your tag for etiquette instructions before approaching you (I know that's the first place I check).

    Sounds to me like a DeLorean is not your cup of tea, nor would you make a good ambassador to the marque. If you don't want people talking to you, don't get a DeLorean because you don't get to pick and choose what kind of people approach you and you don't get to control what they say no matter what your clever tag says they should do.

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Always gotta consider alternate interpretations of your personal plate.

    In WI we get 7 characters and two half-spaces. Those half spaces can be the difference between "A New Start" and "Anus Tart"

    You must not be the site ambassador. I'll assume what I was trying to convey got lost in translation. Some people came off as real jerks in my time driving the car. When I say some you should read that as 70% of them, sort of know it all types. I drive an attention getter now, I always get, "That's a sharp car, what kind is it?" Or something like that, conversation is always welcome, just not the stupid Delorean comment of the day type comment. Being there is a thread justly named I am certainly not standing alone on this one.

    You go ambassador.

    I never claimed to be the site ambassador, I'm more of the security to run off half hearted fanboys with pipe dreams about what ownership entails.
    If you ever do get your car, you will be sick of it in less than a year.

    Michael is indeed the DMCTalk ambassador.
    He is just being humble.


    Or maybe he is the DMCTalk Ass. One of the two
