Some very good suggestions so far.  What I do at shows is have the
driver's side door closed and locked and just leave the passenger door
up.  That way, the spectators can see what the car looks like with the
doors closed from one side and with the door up on the other side. 
People are more inclined to want to sit in the driver's seat rather
than the passenger side anyway.  Furthermore, I will print off some
DeLorean fact sheets and brochures from the internet and leave them on
the passenger seat for people to read.  I have found this works well
for preventing people from just plopping themselves in the seat
without me coming across as a "snobby sports cars owner". 

If I'm around the car when an enthusiastic kid runs up, dragging mom
or dad behind, I'll actually unlock the driver's door and offer him of
her the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat.  When the kid gets
out again with eyes as big as saucers and jaw almost touching the
ground I always get a big "Thank you, you just made my son's day!" and
a handshake from the parents.  Then I close and lock the driver door
again and wander off to check out the other cars at the show.
