[DML] Re: REDUCED PRICE: 1983 DeLorean $15,000 OBO

Thanks for the tips Andy. When I listed the ad I didn't have more 
pictures and it wouldn't let me revise so I added links to them in 
the end when I was able to take them. Here they are.


I really don't know a lot about the car, just what the owner told me 
and what I've seen three or four times. He doesn't have a computer so 
he asked me to post the ads and forward potential buyers to him. 
Anyone who e-mails, I've been giving them his phone number so they 
can get all the details from him as he's owned the car for a long 
time, did all the work and knows everything about it.

Sorry that it makes it sound like I'm not being truthful with the 
condition as you implied, it's just that I don't know much about cars 
so am just relaying what I've been told. I can assure you that this 
guy is very honest and wouldn't even let me put it on eBay because he 
doesn't want people to not read all the stuff that's wrong with it 
and be disappointed. He's had me post even the most minor details 
which makes it sound a lot worse than it is I'm sure. I could have 
done what I've seen on most other DeLorean ads and just say the year, 
miles and it's in "good condition with a few minor problems" but we 
don't want anyone coming all the way to see it and not know about 
every detail ahead of time. That's probably not the best way to get 
it sold but we're not out to deceive anyone.

Anyway, thanks for the tips.
