RE: [DML] Get rid of the wings

Were it not for the gullwing doors, Doc Brown would have driven a #$&%ing Mustang!

I guess my question is why would the designer of the car, (Giogetto
Giugiaro) and the engineers who put so much effort into building doors that
work the way they do be disappointed in seeing us appreciate them?

You are correct, the DeLorean does have a lot more to offer. So does any
car, in fact. The stainless steel and the doors are a big part of what make
it unique though. My personal, and of course, subjective opinion is that
these should be celebrated, not ignored. Of course, I like the look of the
car with the doors shut too! The front page of the website is simply an
artist's photograph of our beloved car. Doors open.doors's still
a DeLorean, and it has still captured many hearts, including mine, over the
last 30 years.

Just my two cents,

Just a thought... And people reaction much appreciated. Get rid of the gull
wing doors on all front line promotional work for Deloreans? It is soo
obvious. Without the doors popped open, the Delorean is a stunning car. With
one open, it's quirky. With two open it's an over weight dragonfly. Should
be beautiful, fast and sleek, but for some reason this one's
metamorphosisied Into a flying slug. The Delorean has more to offer than
it's doors!!.

I'm writing partly after reading all the DOA posts, then checking out their
website... Awful to the extreme. I'm pretty sure all the original designers
will be turning in their graves to see so many pictures of the car they put
so many man ours into ruined by pictures like this.
