Damnit, Houston, this little marketing blitz has taken over my life.
*EVERY* *SINGLE* *PERSON* who knows me has literally accosted me over
this story. Do you know how many times I've had to explain, "No,
they're not *really* making 'new' DeLoreans, you're not going to see
DeLorean dealerships springing up and selling thousands of these
things, etc." Seems everyone thinks Houston is building a new factory
and churning them out en masse. It's like they don't even read the
actual story, just glance at the headline and run with it.

Last week, a coworker emailed me about it after I'd already explained
it to a dozen other people around the office. I replied with a
thousand word essay on how DMCH came into existence and how the "new"
DeLoreans will be built and how he must not have read the entire
story, else he would know these things, etc. He came into my office
and gave me some crap about being a geek (yeah, so?). Not 30 minutes
later, during a meeting, another guy says, "Hey Ryan, did you hear
they're producing DeLoreans again?" At which point, the half of the
room that'd heard about our earlier discussion erupted into laughter.

THEN ... Right after the meeting someone else stops me in the hall
with the story, causing yet another fit of laughter from the guys who
were with me.

And tonight, my folks topped off an otherwise lovely evening with
mention of the story.

It's like I can't get away from it. My DeLorean had better be worth
another ten grand by the end of the year, otherwise Stephen's going to
have some explaining to do.
