[DML] Delorean reference on MotorWeek, PBS



Motorweek started in 1981 and just had a 25th anniversary episode.  
They mentioned the D only to rip on it, of course.  Specifically, 
that it was better as a car in BTTF than as a car in reality.  For 
some reason they also preceded that bit by mentioning the Bricklin.  
About that they said it "answered a question nobody asked" as they 
showed it during crash testing.  I'm not sure why they would even 
mention the Bricklin, as it would have been years out of production 
by the time Motorweek came around.  

Here's a return rip:  I rarely watch Motorweek but I got pulled into 
this episode because I knew a reference to the D had to be 
forthcoming.  I think my main gripe with the show is that they seem 
to take exciting things and make them less exciting, and its a rare 
talent that can do that.  (A new oil strainer featured on "Goss's 
Garage"  or maybe some paltry motor news from whoever the producer 
is dating this year.)  They had an annoying kid who's a new test 
driver exhort everyone to tighten their lug nuts when they do some 
test driving.  Thanks, MotorWeek!
