[DMCForum] Re: comments at a car show...



It is not so much a comment.... but one guys way of 'winning' me 
round. He began to amaze me with his vast knowledge of the car, how 
many were made and where etc etc etc. After he had said his thanks 
and left i noticed my partner laughing away nearby...  

.....She had told him all this info just 5 minutes earlier....Tut!

other day, however a guy came up to my car and asked how it was 
running, how I liked the VOLVO (yes he knew the engine type) engine, 
and he commented on how neat the gullwing doors were because they 
required LESS side clearance to get into the car (he is one of only 
3 people in the 3 years I have owned my car to get this right, as 
most people think the gullwing doors require more side clearance).  
Any one last thing, the guy commented how he had no doubt that JZD 
was set up.  It was refreshing at last to see someone who got it 
right about the DeLorean after all the stupid comments I get from 
people

not some stupid movie!
