Re: [DML] trailer hitch

Isn't that what a Bricklin is for?(it has the high torque v8)and a 
beefy frame to attach a trailer hitch.That would look cool a Bricklin 
towing a Delorean on a trailer to a gathering.

King and needed my help. Well I live in the Denver area (Read about 
500+ Burger Kings), but after a bit of thought I figured I knew which 
one. So I looked up the number and gave Burger King a call. The 
manager answers and I explain I am looking for my wife and what kind 
of car she's driving would he mind taking a look. A few minutes later 
I hear the manager yell "Hey guys come look there is a Delorean 
outside." It seems my father had come to help her and his only form 
of transport at the time was the Delorean.

car and our Ford Escort Wagon and towed it to our favorite garage, 
about two miles away. The Delorean had no trouble towing the car 
until... He went over a speed bump and then had to stop. When he 
started up again he couldn't pull the Escort over the speed bump due 
to lack of torque.... Now this is where the story gets a bit 
embarassing for us Delorean owners, The garage owner came out with a 
special "golf cart" hooked up my dead car and finished moving it into 
the garage...
