Re: [DML] Ignorant DJ

You obviously are not speaking about MY DeLorean.

Think about this: The car was a FIRST-RUN so you (or anybody else)
shouldn't be too surprised that it had a few problems.  It didn't
benefit from years of production and engineering updates.

I can think of cars that have been in production for many years that
still have recalls.  VW, Honda, Ford - whatever.

Second, any DeLorean that has been maintained properly will run just fine.

Lastly, these cars are almost 25 years old.  So yeah, I suppose it's
real easy to pick on the DeLorean since 25 year old parts can fail.  I
guess it's kind of ironic that these first-run vehicles are still
around, don't you think?

If you want to say negative things about the DeLorean, try another
forum.  Most of us love our cars and get a little tired of hearing
what some "experts" think.

Corey, I feel for you.  Next time someone like that opens their mouth,
ask him if he ever owned one himself.  If he didn't, he has no way of
knowing.  Period.
