I realized that this was a 'dream car' topic; you see, I *am* going to buy a Delorean, whether used or special order (via third party, officially licensed).
Sweet. One question: what happens when you get it up to 88 MPH? Anything? :
Actually, the Delorean in the movie couldn't actually achieve 88 (assuming it's a stock engine, etc. etc.). The top speed is 85, it's a Volvo engine. One of many stupid mistakes on Mr. Delorean's part, but that adds to the mystique.
There are those who replace the engines w/ Ford engines and such; others (including myself, I hope) plan on the 'add-on' that allows it to go not 88 but 180 MPH.
