    The bad mouthing always goes up, doesn't it? Like it's always a guy driving some beater POS that finds fault in your car. Never a guy driving some million dollar supercar that comes around to tell you how shitty or underpowered your car is. To me it's like that scene in Saving Private Ryan where Tom Hanks' character explains how gripes always go up, never down. Complain to your superiors, not the guys under your command.

    My fear though of letting any of these dirtballs hear exactly what I think of them and their comments is that it is not very hard to track down a DeLorean owner. Zero privacy with these cars nowadays once you add in the social media factor. Just type into Google the city or town name and "DeLorean" and your name and photo comes up in the first few images. I don't need one of these knuckleheads coming back around to do something stupid. 'Cause Googling "rusty beige Corolla" isn't going to let me find him in return.
    Exactly, I just wanted to say my piece and get outta there. No sense in trying to argue or correct him about the car, it's not worth it with morons like that.

    Yep, it's always the people who drive crap cars that want to criticize yours. Probably because deep down they're jealous and their way of dealing with it is to degrade what you have.

    I've had that same thought to, which is why I didn't let it turn into a bigger deal than it was. I could've gotten out of the car and confronted him or said something else, but inflaming the situation like that probably wouldn't have ended well.

    Not so much a stupid comment but a bizarre interaction.

    I was working on my car in my drive way and a guy drove up and asked if he could take a look. I said sure, and he was polite and friendly and all that. But then he proceeded to tell me that he'd just moved in down the street and pointed towards a house. I said "cool, guess I'll see you around." He said the same and left, but when he left he did not go to "his" house. He took off in another direction, and I have not seen him or his car since then, and it's been a week. I'm 99% positive he does not live in my neighborhood. And I'm not even sure why someone would randomly lie about that, especially since I didn't ask him.

    I had a fellow come up to me at a car show today and explained how the Delorean was created by “dumbing down” a Bricklin. This guy even said he had worked on one before and said the Delorean was so heavy because of the stainless steel panels. He even said the Delorean used the same frame.
    When I calmed down and explained things to him, he quietly slipped away.

    Sounds like the guy I encountered Wednesday night at the car wash. I was finished washing my car, so I was out by the vacuums drying it off and this guy in a Dodge Viper pulls up then gets out of his car and told me about his "86' Delorean"... and that was the year they offered them with the optional Nissan engine from the 300ZX turbos. He said he was going to get the 1985 model, but heard that Delorean was coming out with the Z engine and he decided to wait.

    I wanted to say something SO badly, but I just kept wiping off my car hoping he would leave. He started walking around my car and poked his head in the drivers door and saw my 9mm in its holster between the seat and the console. He said, "Why do you pack driving something like this?" I just said, "You always meet some crazy people at the car wash who try to BS their car stories." He promptly walked away...
