Re: Whats YOUR mileage?? (Was [DML] Ignorant DJ)

I just rolled over 35,000 last month.  The most miles I have put on 
my car so far were driving from Detroit to Houston and back for the 
show at DMCH, 2,800 miles round trip.  I was a bit nervous at first, 
but now I know I can drive it anywhere.  I bought my Delorean to 
show AND to drive/have fun with, and that's what I'm doing!

# 3002
