    Another view of the D Rex, upon arrival at DCS 2012, at the Hilton in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

    There were several areas in front of the Hilton that I was able to get Palm Trees in the background,
    however, I did refrain from taking the D Rex "off-road" and onto the front lawn of the Hilton (LOL).

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

    Other Jalopnik thread was directed to the DeLorean Limo project, on the DeLorean Limo thread.

    My video has been getting over 40,000 views! I can't believe this.

    I was at the show early every morning until the last moment. Barely got any sleep the whole trip, but it was worth it!!

    One thing I have learned from doing car shows is that some of the best moments are when the cars are either coming in or going out (that way you can see them in action).

    Youtube paying you yet Chris? They should! Here commences the Delorean fund!

    I agree about turning up early and leaving late at car shows. Get to see and hear them in action.

    But this D-Rex sounds awesome! Open pipes?

    I believe so. That 350 Chevy V8 sounded like it had been kicked up a bit. What was cool about the D-Rex is that the inside still looks like a stock Delorean. Even the stock automatic shifter was kept. But it uses a Chevy truck transmission.

    +1 on the Jammer Channel. If its good enough for Joey and that guy who is going to steal the car, the it is good enough for Chris.

    Part of the cool noise is the fact that the engine is at head height

    Other than a few "joy rides" by Don Steger when D Rex was in CA
    earlier this Spring (which I found out about after the fact), all other
    rides have been kept at low speed, since I placed the two speed
    transfer case in Low and disconnected that shifter back in 2002.

    (Don may still have his photos and/or videos on FaceBook)

    There were a few "ride arounds" to move the D Rex to the front
    of the Hilton and back to the Convention Center and parking lots,
    but that was about it. A few folks were able to get short rides in
    these ride arounds, including Nick Sutton, who had a blast.

    I'm now getting requests from people if they can use my video!

    One was a webpage, the other was a independent TV show called www.rightthisminute.com
