[DML] Re: Turbocharger availability



Dan,
     Have you ever driven a turbo DeLorean?  Some people like to 
push their cars, autocross, do spirited runs, things like that.  The 
Germans actually have a word for it, and forgive me for no 
umlauts....Fahrvergnuegen.  IMHO my car is a different animal than 
yours, but it suits me because I enjoy it.  I was never a fan of 
turbochargers and had my car not come that way I'd probably never 
have done that, but I love what my car can do.  I love being able to 
pass quickly with that power on tap.  I love being able to climb the 
hill on the 17 north to Prescott in 5th gear going from 2,000 ft. to 
5,000 ft. in elevation.  I love knowing there's more there if I want 
it or need it.  It isn't an upgrade for everyone, I'll agree to 
that.  But for some of us Tim Taylor MORE POWER types it works quite 
well.  I certainly don't have the fastest DeLorean....but my car is 
quick and has the power I like.

To each his or her own.
