Also, in  case you don't know, insuring a D can be a nightmare even for
adults with  great driving records. Insuring one as a teenager will be
either impossible  or horrendously expensive (on the order of $4,000
per year or more). Most  places will just laugh you off or say "A De
what?" if you try to get it  insured.>>
I'm sure that any of us who own a fully dependable DeLorean will agree that  
finding and buying one was the easy part. Finding affordable insurance, 
getting  mechanical work done well, and paying to upgrade a 25 year old car are the 
more  expensive parts. Having it and not being able to use it is pain, not  
pleasure.  I let my son Richard buy his original dream car, a  1955 Chevy, when 
he was 15. He did pay it off, but has never had the $$$ to  fix it up. It's 
been in the garage, taking the place of my D, for 7 years. He  never even got to 
drive it until last year, when I kicked in more than a grand  just so his 
grandfather could "see him drive it once before he dies." Now he's  in med 
school, with neither time nor money. So it sits. Anticipation is always  more fun 
than the disappointment of owning something unusable.  There will  still be 
DeLoreans for sale after all of the current crop of teenage future  owners have 
more money to spend than me.  Not mine though, my son  would never let me sell 
it, even to upgrade!  :-)
