Talking Funny Things People Say to DeLorean Owners

"You got a scratch in your door... better fix it before it starts to rust."

---

"How many coke cans did Mr. Deloene have to melt down to make that alummi-nun body?"

---

"You drug dealers! Do you really have to go flaunting your money around!?"

---

"Seen Ralph lately?"

Not quite sure who/what he is talking about, I reply "Ralph who?" He answers: "The guy who made the car". All of the sudden it clicked, and I replied "oh...no. Its 'John DeLorean...not 'Ralph Lauren' "

He felt a little bit silly, and walked away without another word.

---

"WOW, where did you get that car?".

I gave him the usual intelligent remark: "I bought it!"

Then he said, "I thought they were all confiscated after the drug bust!!!"

---

A bunch of us decided we needed to gas up so we drove around looking for a nearby station. We all pulled in and started gassing up when the attendant (a young boy) came out and said "I never saw a Delorean up close before in my life and now here are 10 of them!!!!!"

---

I was at the gas pump filling the tank as usual... an older man (about 65 years old or so) walks over and starts asking questions about the car. First think out of his mouth is "Boy that sure is a neat car! ....is that a new electric car?"
...right as I'm standing there with gas nozzle in hand at a Mobil station. It was seriously hard not to laugh.

---

"Is that thar one of them thar Mazzeratties?" <-- The spelling really can't bring out the Oklahoma "good 'ol boy" accent, or the way she butchered Maserati when she said it. My wife and I still think of that and get a laugh out of it occasionally.

---

I once had someone in NJ (while stopped at a traffic light) ask if my car was a modified Nissan.

---

While filling up at the local gas station. An older gentleman just stood by and stared at our car. I smiled at him and had no response as he kept staring at the DeLorean.

Getting kinda weird now as I kept filling the tank while he would not even make eye contact but standing very close to me. After fueling up and heading for my seat I made one more effort to look at him. He finally looked at me and said: "It ain't got a lick of paint on it!"

---

"What did you do with all the wires and stuff?" (I guess he was asking about the props attached to the time machine DeLorean).

Hahahaha, those are great! I only wish people said funny stuff to me when I was driving my delorean. All I ever got was "where's the flux capacitor" and "did those doors always open that way". That got really annoying.

I'm basically at that point now, thanks to my good pal Tyler Durden. Oops, I'm not supposed to talk about it

These days I try to drive the car while wearing my Harley bandana... I figure, if they got the balls to mess with a guy wearing a skull-covered black bandana on his head, then they know what they got coming to them:evillaugh

America's great FBI accused DeLorean of shipping cocaine from Ireland along with his cars. The last time I checked, Ireland isn't really known for its cocaine production What a big, stupid lie the U.S. Government got away with.
