Re: [DML] Re: Conversion question; was BTTF conversion vin 01305. :(

Despite your brilliant observation of the BTTF movie trilogy, I have never met any one who thought the Delorean was a clunker. I have shown my car since 1993 to thousands of people. All they care about is where the flux capacitor is. You are right that the BTTF movies depicted the Delorean as a clunker of sorts. But I think the over riding theme of the trilogy was focused more on how cool the car was and how it can do time travel. I'm glad we have a car that was made famous via the movies.

The worst part is a toss-up between the shoddy construction of these conversions and the fact that so many of these "Backies" have no interest in preserving the history of the car and wreck any car that they get their hands on. Their love for the movies has them so eager to have their cars ruined that they forego the basics of making sure that the car is reliable first.
