[DML] Re: Best comment on the Delorean Yet

I know a guy who scornfully told me that I bought the car because of 
the attention it gets me.  Duh!!!  That seems pretty much the reason 
anyone buys a sportscar, or even a non-sports car, they want 
something special to be noticed.  I don't deny that at all. Funny 
thing is he was talking about buying a Corvette, but didn't see his 
hypocrisy at all.  For me it's not ego, or trying to show off 
financially (it's certainly not that), but instead it's one of the 
coolest, sleakest looking cars on the road, that has an interesting 
history.  My piece of Americana.    I did, however, buy it with the 
idea that it would still function as a car, and given the moderate 
price, would still make sense from a financial perspective.  I think 
we all can agree THAT wasn't the smartest assumption in the world.  
Went a little over budget, actually, went more over budget than the 
actual budget.  Then some. But what's done is done, now just need to 
look at it going forward.  Now that's it's fixed up, I'll just have 
to put gas in it and go, right???  Sure, that's it.
