Subject: Delorean Goodyear ads

Fellow DMLer's,
  While rereading SSI the other night I came upon a question that I had no 
answer to. The "Live the Dream" ads were placed in January 1982 issues of 
Time, U.S. News & World Report. The Craig, Sylvania, and Cutty Sark ads were 
in various automotive magazines. My question is in what magazines was the 
Goodyear ad? I have the other ads and wish to start looking for the Goodyear 
to complete my collection, but have no idea where to start. It (the Goodyear 
ad, for those who do not have SSI), shows JZD leaning on a Delorean, with the 
ad reading "Goodyear. Quality a man can stake his reputation on". I seem to 
remember that it was referenced in one of the books about JZD, but have been 
unable to locate the item.
Thanks for any help you can offer............

I was doubting whether I'd do it or not, but the purchase of a
1:1 scale DeLorean came in between...  ;-)

I've seen a review in a Dutch modeling-magazine over a year ago 
and they were VERY positive about the model.
It comes in its own display-case with custom text on the base.
There's much more info on the German club-site:
The texts are in German, if anyone needs a translation, 
you could probably try something like Babelfish...
