    Two more gems on my trip.

    A girl says "I didn't know they existed anymore".


    This guy comes up and asks a few standard questions and then he says "this is the first one I've seen. I only know it because it was in a movie I saw". He said this in such a way that he wasn't sure if I knew that.

    We should start playing with peoples heads when they start making Back to the Future comments, or asking question about the films. "Back to the what? Never heard of it."

    My drive home from Delaware got two more responses.

    First, a guy running a register at a gas station tells me he had a friend that had a "factory painted" one. I told him I don't believe there were any factory painted cars. Then he tells me it had the factory paint code on the data plate. I didn't care to argue since we are talking about a car his friend sold ten years ago.

    The second guy I ran into at a rest area. He goes into this long speel on the history of the car and its designer. He was technically correct for the most part, but he didn't tell me anything I didn't know. For that matter, anything that any "car guy" wouldn't know. I just don't follow the logic of walking up to an owner and assuming he doesn't know anything about his car. I might be able to tell an average person something they don't know about a Bronco, but I would never walk up to a Bronco owner and assume he doesn't know everything I know.

    My VIN:    I respect my vin enough not to whore it out among the masses.

    When I rolled into Jesse's tech meet a few months ago I was in my wife's convertible. Nobody there had met me before except Jesse and everyone was looking at me like "who's this clown?"

    I almost...so close, almost convinced myself to play the part of the most obnoxious douche fanboy any owner had ever seen.

    On second thought it wouldn't have worked because I was wearing my DMC tech shirt.

    Can't wait to meet an owner in the wild though. He/she will have a story to tell here.

    My VIN:    Yes.

    I think this belongs here:

    "Letís make one thing clear. The DeLorean DMC-12 was only famous for its unusual styling, which earned its casting in the timeless film Back to the Future. The DMC-12 has almost no redeeming value under the hood, which is a shame because it came so close. Aside from a severe lack of power, the cars were cheaply put together and broke down. Johnny Carson had two because the first one went right back to the factory for repairs after a brief period of owning it. To his credit, John DeLorean tried to make the car faster."

    It gets worse after that.

    The only bits in that article that I really object to is calling it sloppy and that the door panels donít fit. Iíve never heard that one before! Also, calling DMCH a ďfactoryĒ.

    And here I thought stainless steel had something to do with it...

    I would say this whole sentence was BS.

    "Aside from a severe lack of power, the cars were cheaply put together and broke down."

    I don't see how these cars are any cheaper put together than any others. Do they brake down? Of course they do, along with every other car on the planet. Actually, I have to say my 40 year old, hundred thousand mile car has been pretty reliable. I even have a bone to pick with "lack of power". The car effortlessly will cruise at 85 mph. I don't have any problem excellerating in to traffic. I'm not going to challenge mustangs to a drag race, but I don't have any wish to do that with my wife's Corvette either. With current roads and speed limits, it does everything I need to do.
