Re: [DML] ebay buyer protection


This response will seem harsh, but please don't read it in a negative tone. 
It sucks that this guy on Ebay took you for a ride on this car, but 
honestly, I'm surprised the insurance program is giving anything.  The 
bottom line is, you bought a 24-year-old glorified prototype without doing 
your homework first, and without actually seeing the car.  --Big mistake! 
If you're going to pay 20K for a car, what's a couple hundred for a plane 
ticket?  At the very least, you could take an expert with you to inspect the 

The other way to help avoid this type of situation is to buy a car "in the 
family" from a reputable DeLorean owner (Brandon Moody's car recently sold 
comes to mind).  But still, there's no substitute for a visual and 
mechanical inspection.

But it's too late for that now.  So what do you do?  Don't worry!  It's a 
great group of people and we'll help you.  It will cost you some money, but 
do one project at a time and try to enjoy learning as you go.  Then you can 
sit back and really enjoy driving that car.  You can start by telling us 
your name!  :-)
