Re: [DML] Removing Unnecessary Items From My DeLorean

That's the curious thing: nobody has objected to spare tire weight (or space). They are arguing against it on principle alone: "I don't need a spare because I have AAA." 

Even Marc admitted in Message #84624 not only that he has used his spare tire himself, but that he has loaned it to others whose spares were unusable. In a community as small as DeLorean ownership -- perhaps an even a smaller subset of that community: DMA -- that is a very high incidence of tire failure, especially given the limited distances most DeLoreans are driven (compared to normal cars).

Not even once have I ever needed my seat belt (other than to avoid a ticket of course). Since I drive my car carefully to avoid accidents, why don't I simply take the seat belt out? I carry an insurance card in my wallet, so in the unlikely event that I do have an accident that sends me into the windshield, I can simply call 911 and have an ambulance sent to my location.
