I'll be honest; I thought he was already dead.

It's really a shame he couldn't have made it to age 88.

I had a professor in college with one of his cars. At the time we thought it was the coolest car on earth.

I *still* want a DeLorean. Tricking it out to look like the time machine would be the real problem.

Getting the "flux capacitor" to work would be the real trick.

I was also in the boat that it was the coolest car on earth, but technology has sure passed it by.

Stainless steel body, odometer that only goes to about 80, but it had those sweet gull wing doors. I have a friend that bought the brackets for the Diablo jack knife doors so she can rig her Sunfire to have jackknife doors.

I'd so love to have gull wings on my Ion if the torsion bars and brackets were available.

A Christmas parade I shot last winter in a Green Bay suburb featured one...even painted a dull silver.

If ever I was to become a carjacker, that would've been the time. So damn cool...

(EDIT: Uh, guys, it's speedometers that show how fast any particular DeLorean is going. Odometers measure how many miles the car has traveled in its lifetime.)

Bah! Odometers that go to like 150 are dumb unless you're driving on the autobahn. This way, when you get pulled over for driving 100, you can honestly tell the cop, "No, I don't know how fast I was going."



NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.

What, you mean Cheney isn't going to run? Oh that's right, he's already had four years of running the country. Grimis, you'd probably know more about this than I do, but I had heard that Bill Frist was the major contender.
