[DML] Re: Ignorant DJ

Interesting view point, "me".  The response that I usually offer to 
people who offer the same type of commentary as the aforementioned DJ 
is that this has not been my experience in over 17 years of continuous 
DeLorean ownership.  I have, on many occassions, hopped into Winged1 
and driven to the far side of Montana from Seattle without a moments 
hesitation or doubt.  I have also driven to central Oregon, and well up 
into British Columbia.  Winged1 has only stranded me once in 80,000 
miles of enjoyable driving, and that was about 5 miles from home.  That 
turned out to be a relatively minor electrical issue that was easily 
resolved once I had her home in my shop.  In short, I do not *at all* 
relate to what you are saying about the DeLorean automobile.  If these 
cars are driven regularly, and maintained in a manner suitable to a 
semi-exotic car, you can get wonderful reliability and performance out 
of them.  Ask a Ferrari 308 owner if he would hop in and go for a 1200 
mile drive without any major preparation, and he'll look at you like 
you're on drugs.  If you don't take care of them, they won't take care 
of you.  It's just that simple.
