Sort of. Why didn't you want to tell them?

My concern is price. Once they find out what the car is, they want to
charge you an arm and a leg. I called a local tint shop, asked them
how much to tint a little 2 seat sports car. They wouldn't give me a
quote without knowing what the car was, so I told them it was a
Pontiac Fiero (I've got one of those, too). They said $220.

I then took the DeLorean in, figuring it would be a little more
expensive because of the split windows. They took one look at the car
and quoted me $450. The bastards. You know they only did it because
they figure if I'm driving a DeLorean I must be Mr. Money Bags.
Needless to say they won't be getting my business at that price. If
they can do a Fiero for $220 then they can do a DeLorean for $250.
