[DML] Re: The Delorean lifestyle

In my 1 year of ownership experience, Ive recieved 99% positive 
reactions from people.  Pulling into a gas station is often fun b/c 
of people staring and admiring the car.... especially since your 
putting gas in the front!  Just make sure you know all your stuff so 
you can answer those tough questions.  Ive had several occations 
where people yell from the street like "hey marty mcfly" or "back to 
the future yeah!" stuff like that. I think most of the smartass 
jokes are told when they walk away and talk to there freinds.  Thats 
why I try to educate them as much as possible while I have there 

In my mind, a refurb from Texas is probably the best possible choice 
you could make if you have the funds.  Having all new and NOS parts 
plus the warrenty... its hard to go wrong.   I did not have the 
funds so I found a well maintained car locally (luckily).  My car 
has been really realiable... only preventative maintenance and a few 
age related problems to date.  

I inusre my car through state farm, but last time I talked them them 
they stopped taking on new delorean accounts.  Many people go 
through www.hagerty.com who specializes in collectable cars.

My situation sounds similar to yours... im married w/ 0 kids (and 
not planning on any in the near future).  I grew up w/ Back to the 
Future and thats what started my facination with the Delorean.  I do 
not drive mine dailey though as my work is 30 min away downtown 
area, small parking spaces.  I just drive it on sunny days, ice-
cream, weekends, cars shows etc.  I would definitely recomend a 
backup vehicle if you're using it as a daily driver.  

Hope this helps!  If you want more details on my $$ experience feel
