Re: [DML] Re: Fuel Metering

I really think you are one of the few who really wants to go back in  
time with their Delorean and Carburetor it. Bill it was a Movie and  
the car really wasn't meant to go back in time. ;)

I hate to see what you would want to do with.... Hmm-mm.... a 2004  
Mustang, Yep Carburetor it!

However my hat is off to you for wanting to be different and there is  
nothing wrong with that. It is nice to see another Delorean that  
isn't a Cookie cutter version of the original, I know how boring  
original Deloreans can be.
