A sports type car. MR drivetrain, manual transmission options, and nice amienities inside. If you've ever sat in one (i have it'* nice) you'd see what i'm talking about.

Sports coupe i guess. Sports cars don't need crazy power either, they turn

You guys really should stop talking about DeLoreans...

Because if you guys continue, I'll have to join in, and when I start talking about DeLoreans, I start sphitzing all over myself....

Hehe, I love 'em :P Take a look at this site: http://www.usadmc.com/

The DeLorean is NOT dead Build one of their "new" refurbished ones here > http://www.usadmc.com/sales.asp and see what I mean. The Dee'* got new life as a performance car. Check out what they did to that Renault V6 to get a little more stink out of it.

I'd drive one. It better have the 2.24 gigawatt flux capacitor upgrade though.
