*ahem* I forgot to add how this car makes me think of how much I hate the 80's. And all the rotten business practices that people used then and now.

Uncool. All show, no go. It looks like an OK kitted Fiero, but I always think its Redneck meets Italian. Unfortunately, the Redneck holds the majority in this case.

The styling looked great. I especially loved the stainless steel body and how since Mr. DeLorean was a tall man, he made his car for tall people. But unfortunately the DeLorean had a lot of short comings. One being the engine...It was slow and unreliable. In fact the whole car was very unreliable and not cheap to work on. Next is the handling...being rear-engine, it sucked. And last but not least, the car included a spare tired in the front trunk (Frunk) however if you actually had a flat and had to use the spare, you'd have to leave your blown tire as the frunk was not large enough for you to place your broken tire in it. And nobody wants to put it in their passenger seat!

As mentioned above, the car was All show and No Go. It wasn't a sports car, it was a vanity peice. People didn't drive these because they wanted something sporty and quick, they drove it because they wanted to be flashy and on top of the world. Hence why I rank it George McFly uncool.

//edit However I must add that with a good engine swap this car is very quick, which is the way it should of been in the first place. Also the car was just great in BTTF biggrin.gif!

Uncool...it's the nerdiest thing you can possibly drive, considering you can't drive the millenium falcon.

This is a tough one... it has the same engine as a Volvo 260 so it's slow. It apparently can't handle either... not cool.

On the other hand, it's made out of fiberglass and stainless steel and it has gullwing doors... I guess it's somewhere in the middle between cool and uncool.

I say its cool cause of the easiness to twin turbo it from what I hear. I would own one in a heartbeat cause they are different, and you don't see them everyday.
