Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation: A very rare drive indeed

So if you found a DeLorean with a working Flux Capacitor, when would you set the time circuits for?

If the driver seat is pushed all the way back in affected cars, it could compress (and damage) the battery supply cable. According to the company, this can happen when the driver manually puts the seat back (likely, if they're tall) or, in some cases, if the seat loses its calibration...
