    Cool, another Pittsburgh owner. Where do you guys live?

    Allison Park. Cars and Coffee is pretty close so I've taken it up there a few times. But we also have a house in Latrobe so it spends some time down there as well. I drive it a good bit.

    Our Latrobe house is on Twin Lakes Road which is practically Greensburg. I'm sure our paths will cross, the Delorean world is small.

    I spent yesterday morning getting my recently acquired D insured and registered. My insurance agent nearly fell out of his chair when I gave him the vehicle information. He says he’s never seen one in real life and could I drive it down sometime so he could see it? He knew a little about the car, including that it was made in Ireland and that John DeLorean was an engineer.

    At the motor vehicle registry the woman helping me had a big smile on her face when I handed her the paperwork. “That’s the car from BTTF! I love that movie!” She too knew a few things about the car.

    In the afternoon I took my six year old son for a ride. Cruising down a four lane road I notice that we are slowly getting passed by a pickup truck with a young man hanging out the passenger window recording us with his cell phone. I wave and he gives me a huge smile and thumbs up. That really made my day, and I’m pretty sure I made his day too

    Picked my son up at high school today. While waiting I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised how respectful these teenagers were, from asking if it was ok to take pictures, to just a simple thumbs up.

    One guy pulls up next to me and says he loves the car, I said your embarrassing your girlfriend but thanks, he drov off laughing.

    Another two guys walked up to me and said would it be ok to check out the car. They even asked about the graining of the SS.They we’re thrilled to sit in it. Then they asked me how much one of these goes for. They actually asked in a polite way, but I answered that it is not what an exotic (can I call it an exotic?) costs, it is the yearly maintenance cost that is important.

    Get used to the attention - I had many similar experiences this summer driving my car that I bought last January.
    ‘Funny that I got virtually the same comment from the woman at the NY DMV.
    It is amusing to see how many people take pics when you are stopped at stoplights. One of the most amusing times was when I passed a guy at an intersection out on a country road. I saw him watch me go by and did not think much of it. He chased me down and caught me at a stop sign a few miles down the road. He jumped out of his car and started waving at me as I was about to pull away. He very politely asked for a photo. I pulled off to the side of the road and took his picture standing next to the car. He was so excited and could not wait to show it to his family. ‘ Very pleasant young man that I otherwise would never have met...
    ‘Enjoy putting smiles on people’s faces!
