[DML] Re: Best comment on the Delorean Yet



All,

I actually bought my first D becuase I just liked the looks of the 
car, I ran across it while looking for a '61 Chrysler Imperial.  I 
didn't buy it for any "prestige" or anything like that.  Once I 
picked it up and drove it home, I was hooked, what a great car, 
great looks, parts available, a car I can work on.  And during my 
very short ownership experience, I have learned much about the car, 
the company, John DeLoreans vision, and the DeLorean community. I 
bought the second one to keep it from going to someone who would not 
take care of it.

I have had Corvette owners admire the car, as well as one Viper 
owner.  Yes the cars do get a lot of looks, and can cause traffic 
jams, and some really unsafe driving by others.  But I own my 
DeLoreans because I really like the cars styling, history and 
everyone else here that have the same feelings I do for the car.

Would I buy a Corvette, maybe, but its not a DeLorean.

VIN's 4045 and 6704
