    This is true. She might have been so giddy, she peed her pants!

    Correct. This happened to a friend of mine. He found out his mechanic was letting people sit in, and crawl around in his car without his permission via Facebook photos he happened to see and wasn't pleased. This is a guy that will let anyone in his car who asks, he is very open about sharing his car, but permission is a big part of that equation. Don't want to roast this YouTube guy without the full info, he very well may have had permission.

    Good point. Not only should the shop had the owner's permission, they were putting additional mileage onto a very low mileage car. Of course the shop could say they had to test the car anyway and took her along for a short ride. With no plates and maybe no insurance the shop was taking a big risk driving it on public roads.

    I thought the early cars had the speedometer that didn't go past 85?

    All DeLoreans came with a 85mph speedometer, with the exception of the 88 Canadian spec models (240km/h)

    There are some replacement speedometers and guage faces but they are not what was installed from the factory.

    What's the record for a thread having the word 'shocking' used the most? This one may top them all.

    Shocking!

    There is probably a Lucas thread somewhere that has the record.

    Interesting. I would have thought a thread like that would be mostly about electrical fires and fire extinguishers.
