Re: [DML] New Steering Wheel - More Sporty

Or, if you really want to go all the way with it, get a five-point racing  
harness installed! :-)
In all honesty, I'd like to see airbags as an add-on to the DeLorean.   But 
the research costs alone would go through the roof, and quickly make it a  
non-practical solution.  I use my DeLorean for daily-driving.  I hit  the 
Interstate once a week.  People talk about New York... check out  Alligator Alley or 
I-75 in the SW Florida area!  But I digress.
I use mine for daily driving, and despite sitting on the ground versus  other 
cars, I feel very safe driving it.  Having a horn in the center of  the 
steering wheel, I'm somewhat against.  If this mod came out, that would  be great, 
I know a lot of people would kill to have this feature.  I'm not  one of them. 
 And having another option to throw on the "can-do" list is  always welcome.  
In comparison to other cars, our options are kind of  limited.  
My left-hand has gotten into the habit of gliding from the wheel to the  
lever when needed.  One thing that bothers me though, especially at night,  I have 
a foul habit of accidentally flashing the brights when I go to use the  turn 
indicator.  Can't help but wonder how many people I've pissed off thus  far!  
Granted, it's not an "always occurs" habit, but it's often enough to  bug me.
Oh well.
TL;DR (too long, don't read): Car is safe (in my opinion) without  airbags.  
Would be nice to have, but is kind of unnecessary.  Horn  would be neat, but 
also unnecessary.  I think having the horn on the column  gives it more of that 
"different car" feel.
