[DML] Bad Business

On this subject,

After careful thought I decided that I should point out my 
experience with "Delorean One". I hope none of you think less of me 
for sharing this but I feel that future Delorean owners need to know 
about this experience. 

While doing researching before I purchased my car I called Delorean 
One to inquire about the cost of a tune up. I was immediately 
bombarded with insulting comments concerning my judgment on my 
future purchase. He flat out refused to even look at my car because 
there is NO record of it in his "system".  This galvanized my desire 
to work on the car myself. 

For the record, owning VIN 2277 has not been totally smooth but so 
far nothing serious is wrong with my car. It is not perfect but it 
does not need the $10,000 dollars of work that I was told it would 
need by D1 and I am confidant that if I was pressed to sell 2277  I 
could fetch at least what I paid for it if not more. So far I have 
spent $800.00 in parts and have plans for about $2500 more over the 
next couple years or so, rest assured none of them will be coming 
from Chatsworth CA. Even if I do need a good set of hands to perform 
work on my D there are some VERY nice people in Garden Grove who 
will treat me with respect and kindness. 

Why would someone actively engage in insulting potential business? 
Does he intend to stay in business? I am a business owner and a 
musician and if I treated any of my customers or patrons in this 
condescending way I would have been out on my @ss a long time ago. 
Enough said, and thank you to all the kind people on this web forum 
who have helped my through the problems on my car, you know who you

and "shopping around" and then buy from another vendor.   His 
business model does not really include taking the time to deal with 
price hunters as it is very time consuming.
