[DML] Re: The dreaded question, NO FLAMES PLEASE...



Both respondants answered my question, especially the statement 
that "a few will remember a (fill in the blank), everyone will 
remember a Delorean". That's what I'm looking for, folks, a piece of 
history, a memorable car, something special. I already look just like 
someone else - I'm an identical twin - so I don't want a car just 
like everyone else. Now all I have left to do is get a bit of spousal 
approval...just buying her a replacement wedding ring with more 
diamonds than I could afford 22 years ago is helping...
