There is something there that you've really touched upon, that until
now, I never could really put my finger on.

Tthe values of DeLoreans have already increased a great deal. More
than many others could imagined, or others cars already have.

Someone works hard all their life, and they want to treat themselves
to the good things. So, they buy those luxuries they wish to enjoy.
Sometimes people are so proud of themselves and their accomplishments
in life, that they want to display those accomplishments. And that's
absolutely fine. For someone to proudly talk about how high of a price
they paid for a vehicle is alright with me. It's what they're proud
of, and I won't try and take that away from them.

Over the years, I've learned allot about DeLoreans, and about myself
along the way. One of the things that I've learned is that I have my
dream car. There is no choice of words I can write, no glowing
conversation that I can have with any of you in person to express this
feeling enough. I've made it. I have what is to me the perfect car.
This IS lightning in a bottle. The ergonomics of the interior, the
lines, the silhouette of the car in the dark, the attention that I
get, and that feeling I experience when I drive it because it just all
comes together so perfectly. It never gets old. Evertime I turn that
key, it's like I'm behind the wheel of a brand-new car that I've
justed picked up. I'm just as excited to drive it, and just as eager
to show it off to the world!

Some flaunt the price of the car that they drive. They enjoy that
feeling of showing others that they have the means to attian such
things. Some choose cars with long standing heritage, as a way to
somehow connect with that legacy. "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday".
Driving a car that is a proven winner on the track, will show everyone
on the street that you're a proven winner behind the wheel too. You
get to share that feeling, and show it to others too.

Me, I drive my car, and I'm just a guilty of showing it off. And what
I brag about is having the perfect car for me. I just love my car. It
has fufilled everything I've ever needed it for. I have my dream car.
I have a daily driver. I have NO car note. I have that unique car that
tells the world just how different from everyone else I am. And most
of all, the thing that truely makes my car so valuable is that I am
blissfully happy with it.

I'm not a Ferarri owner, I'm not a Corvette owner, I'm not a
Lamborghini owner, I'm not an owner of any other car out there. And
that's alright. What makes my car so special is that it's so coveted
by me. Those other cars hold no value to me, not because they don't
meet some monetary value, not because they don't possess the pedigree
I desire in a car. I just don't want them. That's what makes my car so
much more valuable.

I flaunt off to other people how much more I love my car, than they do
theirs. Whatever kind of car that may be. It's not that they couldn't
afford, or even find someone to sell them a DeLorean. What I brag on
is that special feeling I have about owning my car, that no one else
could get with that very same car. Now if some say essentially saying,
"Hey, I've got more money than you, and can prove it." is the same
thing as "Hey, I've experienced a certain type of happiness with
owning my my car, that you still couldn't afford with all your money."
is the same thing, then I guess I'm just as pretentious as those
people who are willing to pay $70K+ for a car like it.

The reason that I share this is because I've had a chance to meet more
DeLorean people this year, than I did in the previous years before.
Mainly because I honestly have felt that the waters have become much
warmer to socialize in, than when I first bought my car. And the one
thing that I have noticed is that no matter who I have run into to, no
matter how long you've owned your cars, no matter what part of the
country you come from, all of you brag on the same thing. Your
experiences with your cars. No matter what you talk about in your
conversations, it almost ALWAYS ties in somehow with the ownership
experience. All of you will brag more on your pride and happiness with
your cars, than the actual cars themselves as an object. Which is
something that I have not found with owners of other marquees.

I agree, the values of DeLoreans will go up, and they will become
more, and more scarce. And it's because fewer and fewer owners are
willing to part with them nowadays...
