Re: [DML] DeLorean Values.

I never thought I'd want to weigh in on a topic like this, but here goes:

There's another value point for the concourse or simply unmodified
cars: They match the documentation.  The issues that occur are not
"surprises" and things like the DML are value-adds to any unmodified
car.  If I bought a DeLorean with an engine swap, and perhaps some new
electricals, it may run faster, and seem a lot sexier, even more
stable.  But I had better have mad mechanic skills to own such a car
in the event of a problem...  or in the event that I'd like to make
any changes.  I'm rather comfortable doing things to my stock D
because of this list (and my new set of DeLorean World backissues),
and when shopping, that extra benefit was part of my selection
criteria.  I knew virtually nothing about cars...  the DeLorean was my
learning project, but I knew I needed things like online support.  And
it's been great.

I have huge respect for the people who produce amazing modifications
to their DeLoreans, and I also have a lot of respect for the people
who buy them with the knowledge and skill required to handle a truly
unique, one-of-a-kind car, because they're in a totally different
situation when it comes to certain areas of support.

I think both types of cars can pull in major cash, but from very
different types of customers, that is all.  Why the conflict and the
"either / or" mindset?  There may be less people comfortable with a
car that falls outside of the standards and documentation, but anyone
considering an orphan like the DeLorean in the first place is already
looking beyond the normal level of support available to owners of
modern branded vehicles.  DeLorean seekers in particular are probably
more prone to accept "hacks" than any other auto buyers!
