Well, I just finished reading "The rise and fall of John Z. Delorean" and at
first, he just wanted to build the DMC-12, but he started designing a
Gull-winged sedan called the DMC-24, a bus called the trasbus, and with the
DMC-12 were genuine DMC leather jackets, golf clubs, and maybe, along with
that, maybe articles such as wine. He was a big spender of money he didn't
have! :]

The Fast Lane packages are in the stores I have (or had someone else) check 
out, but no DMC yet. TRU does not really have a means of tracking their 
stock from region to region; the stores just wait to see what the home 
office ships to their loading dock. Any _new_ products will turn up on the 
West Coast first.

Well, let me see if I can go higher up on the food chain at TRU... stay

  I just started using my DMC a few months ago after purchasing a new
fuel pump.  The car is extremely sluggish and does 0-60 in about 15 seconds.
 Is this normal for the car or is there something wrong with the engine?
 Also the power locks don't work anymore and i have to slide across the seat
to unlock the passenger door.  Is there an adjustment I can make to solve
this problem? I would appreciate any advice,
