[DML] Re: Seeking DeLorean $10,000 range



I understand exactly where he's coming from (I'm 19, and at 16 I was
willing to do ANYTHING to get one of these cars). At that age I didn't
understand how private car sales usually go down, and how much of a
mistake I'd be making to try and get a D super cheap and fix it up.
(Some of you may remember my attempts to acquire one of the
worst-condition cars anyone had seen up to that point). Even a small
misstatement from my dad that led me to believe he'd help me get one
was enough to get me way over-the-top angry and basically have a fit.

Rather embarrassing really.

My advice to him is to wait. I did and ended up with a very nice
running vehicle for a great price.. as soon as I finish paying for it
(I got super lucky - the owner doesn't mind monthly payments as long
as it doesn't take too long). Even if he succeeds and gets a car for
that price that runs, he'll probably fall into the car restoration
death spiral and end up ruining his dream far more surely than a dose
of realism. 

(Up till now I never thought I would endorse the way people told me to
wait back then...)

On another note, anyone know how to add a signature to my posts?
