[DML] Re: Newsday Article



hi

i would say here in the UK the Delorean will get more attention.

i see a few Ferraris a year, but have never seen a Delorean on the 
road (not even mine yet!)
i get loads of people young/old who stop when i am working on her to 
chat, complete strangers.

don't get me wrong i do like ferraris, but a delorean is a rarer 
beast here and though lots of people have never seen one...everybody 
knows what it is!.
