Re: [DML] Displaying Our Cars

Of course there are thoughtless and rude people out there, but in my experience, for every one of those there are many who are just so thrilled  at seeing a real live DeLorean that their excitement gets the better of them.  For a lot of people, seeing a D in real life is almost like seeing a movie star in public.  In other words, when you choose to take out your car in public, you are setting yourself up to be treated as a celebrity--with everything (good and bad) that goes along with that.   When I am feeling hassled by the bad parts of being a target of public attention, I just stop and remind myself how lucky we all are to own a car that many thousands of fans just dream about, and who are thrilled by a glimpse or a touch.   As Dick suggests, the fingerprints are a small price to pay.

The number of rude, unthinking individuals I have encountered can be counted on one hand and none of those caused any damage other than fingerprints. And, let's face it, folks, the first time you saw a DeLorean you probably ran your hands/fingers over the surface to see if you could feel the graining. I know I did. And that's the very reason others do it.
