Re: [DML] Re: "The Sacrilege of the PRV " or "To Swap or Not to Swap (the Engine)"

And when JZD spoke at DCS 2000, he was working on a
new project that used the Nissan engine as the power

So, I guess my Nissan powered DMC is OK?  It is what
John was working on anyway.

The only thing that makes a DeLorean with a well done
engine conversion worth less than a stock DeLorean is
people who claim to be (or simply act like) an
authority on DeLoreans says so, and turns off
potential buyers.  To date, all "DeLorean authorities"
are self proclaimed, and only gain credibility when
the masses believe them.

I will however agree with Dave T that in general, cars
(all cars) are worth more unmodified.  However, that
generalization is self perpetuation.  As others have
stated, there are many "custom cars" out there that
demand lots more than their "stock" counterparts.

This whole discussion is like when someone says a
concours car is "the best", so you can read my
arguments on that topic and apply it here.
