Re: [DML] Displaying Our Cars

Don't get me wrong, almost all of the time when I have had the Delorean on display at a car show, the people have been very respectful. They ask questions, ask if they can take pictures and some ask if they may sit in it and have their picture taken.

However, there is always someone who thinks that they are above the rules and will try to do something. If someone gets in without asking, I tell them to get out and leave. If they ask, I normally let them, but it is totally inappropriate for someone to lay on the car, to open the doors and try to get in or do anything before asking if they may. These are the ones that you have to look out for.
