Re: [DML] Turn signal switch- Do they exist or not?

I had one instance where I was at a car show that was also an air show, the doors were down and locked, but I had the windows open (hot, sunny day). We had moved away from the cars to see the air show better, but I kept an eye on the car. I saw an adult male, in his 20's reach in, unlock the door, open it and start to get into the car. I had started over when I saw what he was doing and before he got in, I was close enough to ask him if it was his car. He said No. I told him that it was mine and the he should get the @#$% %^&* out of there before he was sorry. He looked dumbfounded, but left quickly.

For what ever reason, doors closed and especially doors open, people feel that they can take liberties with our cars where they wouldn't think of doing it with other collector cars. You always need to be vigilant when the your Delorean is on display.
