Re: [DML] Optima want fries with that?

Whne people whould see my Flux on the back shelf, they would ask..
"Wow, it really has a flux capacitor?"
I would tell them it was standard equipment, the other parts like the rear 
were factory options.
I ought not do that sort of thing because now this guy is going to get into
a fight in a bar with some DeLorean owner someday when he states this to
be fact. Who knows.....
I know I have had many arguements with yokal locals at gas stations who
insist on educating me on my own car with "facts" they THINK they know.
