[DML] Re: Parking lot collision advice?

*Winces* Aww...man, I feel your pain. I've never had any kind of
moderate/serious damage to my D, but I had someone "key" my rear
quarter panel once on the driver's side...there was a nasty rust
streak going across the steel, but nothing a little elbow grease and
scotch brite pads didn't help. Why people would do things like that on
*purpose* is just plain mean! I could stand to take out a few
dime-sized dings in my DeLorean's body as well. Fascias/tail light
lenses are rather faded too.
#10715, in need of a suspension tune-up but still alive and driving.
