I actually have two. The biggest and most obvious one is “little bastard” the cuddly cat. This was a joke present from a couple of other D owners along with a book “1001 things you can do with a dead cat”. See the thing is, I have a long standing not so fond relationship with neighbour cats scratching up my car(s) and shitting in my garden, leaving me to clean up the mess, normally after I’ve run my fingers through it or stepping in it whilst gardening. Needless to say; not a fan of cats. They found it hilarious.

The other is a dangler of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. This one I placed myself. The reason being that, at least years ago, maybe not so much now, I just seemed to be always doing things to my car to fix/repair or improve things which no one would ever see or appreciate, meaning my car never looked as impressive as others’ cars. Even now, I’ve still got shoddy looking bumpers and alloys needing refurbishing. I’ll get them done eventually. Anyway, the dangler is there because I’ve been heard defending myself over the poor looking state of my car in the past by saying “she’s a bit like Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon, “she may not be much to look at kid, but she’s got it where it counts”. You can see it just at the top of the picture.

Awesome stuff. Good to see im not alone.

@rissy, love the millennium falcon reference as i feel that is the same as my car. Although im close to moving onto cosmetic work now.

I did consider another mascot as theres always a gremlin in these cars...

Much better to have the Gremlin on the front seat where you can keep an eye on him.

There is only one thing in life worse than not owning a DeLorean.
Owning one which is not running...
