Usually when I show my car, it's met with a mix of everything from
feelings of nostalgia to curiosity, fascination, amazement,
appreciation, etc. With the exception of some bias against it from a
few of the American Muscle cars owners, it generally receives nothing
but positive attention until one evening a older British fellow
happened along. He approached me, and he was polite, but his opinion
of the car, DMC and John DeLorean were not very favorable. In so many
words he made it clear to me that he saw the result of his swindled
and wasted tax dollars sitting parked right there before him. Again,
he was a truly polite gentleman, but he made sure that I knew how he
and many other British taxpayers felt about how their money was
misappropriated and misused to create what I displayed so proudly. I
tried to be nice and gently lighthearted about the topic to ease the
tension, but I could feel the significant lever of genuine bitterness
he was holding back. That encounter was a first for me.
