Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying any of us bought our cars to have
a status symbol. Remember, I believe the vast majority of people do
NOT buy cars to impress others. I know why I bought mine, and the
opinions of strangers didn't enter into the equation. They don't mean

That said, the car has all the elements of a status symbol. It's rare.
It's exotic. It's stylish as hell. It was designed by a man who was
rich, brilliant, and fashionable - and he flaunted it. To your basic,
condescending jackass, DeLoreans scream "My driver has a tiny penis"
every bit as much as a Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Thankfully most people aren't condescending jackasses. But still,
whether we like it or not the car is a status symbol. Moreso than an
H2, in my opinion. I see half a dozen H2s every day. I see a couple
DeLoreans a year (not including DeLorean specific gatherings) and one
of them is mine!

What's the deal, Greg? What's wrong with your car? Put it together,
