[DML] Electric DeLorean Update: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The GOOD: Tom Neiland and I got new tires on the Electric DeLorean and its  
very first New York State inspection as an electric vehicle.  We are now  
driving around legally.
The BAD: On the way yo the tire store we stopped at Tom's house to make  sure 
everything was still working and to check out his new 4 post lift. (Yes,  
membership in the LINY-DeLorean Motor Club has its benefits!)  When I  lifted up 
the gear shift lever to get into reverse, it BROKE OFF!  Has  anyone ever 
experienced the lever breaking?  Mine broke right a the weakest  point, where the 
"reverse" pin goes through it.  Anyone know how to fit  this?  I can still 
shift but it a bit more challenging.  Not problem  today, I just left it in 3rd 
gear most of the time.
The UGLY: I was only able travel about 20 miles on a charge.   Thanks Tom for 
the tow back home.  Hopefully with a bit more tweaking we  can get that range 
up a bit.
Thank  you,

Dave Delman
