[DML] Re: Cat removal

So it's not financially or environmentally moral to have a 
Delorean???  Maybe, maybe not, on the financial side, but definately 
better on the environmental side.  From a financial perspective, if 
you keep it in your garage and just look at it, then it may not make 
financial sense (some of us do this, some use as a daily driver).  
But if you drive it at all, over the course of your ownership, any 
miles you put on the Delorean you are not putting on another car, so 
over time it MAY make sense when compared to a $40,000 Lexus, may 
not make sense when compared to a $15,000 Saturn.  But to make a 
blanket statement that it doesn't make financial sense is wrong.  I 
drive mine 65 miles each way to work, probably 4 days a week. Over 
time it should make financial sense (unfortunately it's not from a 
short term perspective which I'm focusing on right now given some 
other more immediate needs for the cash).  From an environmental 
perspective it's definately better to buy a 1981 Delorean and drive 
it than order a 2005 Ford.  The amount of resources necessary to 
produce a new car is relatively MUCH higher, including the electric 
usage in the factory, the gas usage in transport, the use of raw 
materials in the manufacturing process, etc etc etc, with a used car 
the resources needed are minimal.  Think of buying a used car as
