    That is great. "You control air conditioning, power steering..." Someone has to point out he must be driving the rare factory installed power steering enabled car.

    According to the article the DMC they tested also had the extremely coveted and unusual stainless steel frame.

    Wow, thanks for the video! Capital Cadillac is where I saw my first DeLorean sometime around 1988. I had heard from a kid at school that there was a DeLorean there and I got my mom to drive me over. They told us that it was in the back. We were walking through the Cadillacs and I distinctly remember wondering if I’d recognize it. I knew that it looked cool in Back to the Future, but I knew that movies could make things look cooler than they really are. Maybe it would just look “regular”. As we continued to walk, there was a car missing from the row to my left and through that space I could see in the next row of cars, a DeLorean sitting at a perfect 3/4 view with the passenger fender closest to me.

    When we got home, my mom sent a letter to thank them for letting us see the car, when we clearly had no means to buy it. She asked them to call us if they ever had to move it around the lot because she was sure that I’d love to see it in motion. They called about a week later and asked her to bring me back for a ride! It was the best day of my life! About 12 years later, I pulled into my parents’ driveway in my very own DeLorean.

    Nice. Also, I miss Ponderosa. And the Rustler. I don't miss the Wooden Nickle.

    That's great. Too bad on the timing of that road test in the dead of Michigan winter.
