[DML] Autos/Turbos as daily drivers?



Hey List,

So it's time for me to come out of hiding and see what's going on in 
the DeLorean world again. As many of you know I've owned 2 DeLoreans 
in the past; the first one bit the dust because a drunk driver 
plowed into me, and I had to sell the second one last November 
because I hit a rough patch. The bug has never left me tho, in fact 
it seems to keep growing worse every day! And I finally have a 
career working for the Federal Reserve that will support my DeLorean 
habit. Anyone want my fully loaded '01 Eclipse Spyder GT? Haha :-)

Here's my question, my last two DeLoreans were both grey interior 5-
speed cars. I want to mix things up this time around and get 
something different. It seems most everyone I've been close friends 
with in the DeLorean community has had a naturally aspirated 5-speed 
car. I think for the sake of spicing things up this time around I'd 
like either an automatic or turbo DeLorean. Anyone have experience 
of driving either of these daily? 

I've heard BAD things about automatic DeLoreans, that their 
transmissions just aren't the best and they eventually all need a 
multi-thousand dollar overhaul or replacement at some point in their 
lives. Never really been around anyone who's had a turbo car for any 
period to hear their horror stories either. Anyone have anything to 
share about either the Island twin turbo setup or the BAE single 
turbo cars? Are parts easy to obtain for them? My next DeLorean will 
be my only car, so keep that in mind. Any thoughts on the subject 
would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to drop me an email at Louie
(AT)DeLorean.com. Take care!
